The plate is pretty useless on a buggy it was fitted to stop the column going up in the outer column and then the driver it helps to collapse the expanded section in a crash but will only work with a full cage buggy where the column is bolted to something more solid than a fibreglass tub.

You will be fine Hugh but booking is best done early for interested parties to ensure you can get in.

I will arrange the show for 2022 but will be away for the actual show so will need a volunteer to have all the paperwork and be point of contact.

yellow and black is aux ignition circuits and powers the headlight flash etc the black is ignition feed which could go to the fuse box to be split into other ignition controlled items and the coil but VW use it for coil.

you have feed in red
aux circuits yellow black
ignition black
starter solenoid red black

always fit 2 X 6 blade fuse boxes so lights are left side/tail right s/t and one for each headlamp beam as I have seen buggies with 1 fuse doing all the lights so one failure equals nothing at all.

Wait until you see folks putting can bus systems in buggies with computers for the seat and light controls, auto sensing wipers and stuff.

Simple is nice, reliable and nearly trouble free whilst easy to diagnose a problem.

you only use one spade as they are connected but the spare can be used as a power point to operate a hot start relay so beetle owners fit.

We are up for that visit, do we need a list of folks doing the museum tour and cafe or just cafe.

Hi Dave will leave it up to you as the local expert.
Gp, Tramp, Volksrod and Jas are British bodies to name but a few  ;-)up

Never knew it existed but it looks an interesting place and not to far, would be a good stop on the cruise.

understandable Dave but looking forwards to it and if some restrictions hit again hopefully we can just have a quite caravan break away, further on we have already booked a trip to look around South Africa early in 2022.
cannot see the NEC show happening 11 th June but not cancelled yet, outside events with social distancing will hopefully survive from the start of July.

Lock down easing so hopefully all systems go for this weekend anymore interested in a buggy weekend.
