Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Rear earth points on a Doon?
« on: July 11, 2013, 11:07:49 AM »
Been doing quite a bit of research into the location and type of earth connection at the rear of my buggy, but i'm still stumped!

I'm building a Doon and have earth points on the steering support bar at the front, but need some advice on where to put one at the back and what type of connectors/blocks people are using.

If possible I would love some photos and suppliers of bits please.

I have run a black 25mm2 from my cut off switch to the back of the buggy so I have an earth feed.  I obviously need to connect this to a terminal block of some description so I can take my feeds off this.  Ideally i'd like to find a way of attaching the earth block without an obvious visible fixing!

I know i'm asking a lot, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers in advance.


This all makes sense!

Thanks to everyone for their help, especially Chad. The wiper motor is in and hopefully I'll get some time in the workshop to try and fit the speedo.

Thanks again.


Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Speedo and wiper motor on a Doon?
« on: June 25, 2013, 03:36:34 PM »
Hi everyone.

I have been loitering for a couple of years now (obviously on the previous forum) and have been amazed at the amount of info available.  I haven't posted much because I have always managed to find the information I needed somewhere on the internet.

Anyway, I actually started building my buggy around 8 years ago, but due to girlfriends, marriage, flats, houses, money, babies and the buggy shell I planned for no longer being available, its only in the last couple of years that I have got a shifty on with it and am making pretty good progress.

This progress has now been hindered due to a few issues I have come across and need some help.  I'm building a Doon and need to fit the standard beetle speedo.  Now I thought this would be a pretty straight forward task but I am struggling to fit it without drilling holes in the dash.  Is this the only way? I was hoping to avoid drilling holes!

Another problem is fitting the wiper motor.  Again I thought this would be a fairly straight forward task but the two speed motor just doesn't seem to want to fit.

I pretty good at working things out but these two issues are holding up finishing the wiring loom and final fitting of the dash, which is kind of holding up lots of other bits.

Hope someone can help.
