Buggy project - what to fix first

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

Looking good. You are moving much faster than I am.

I cheated and started with a running buggy! I don't have fab skills, I am just adding lights and stuff to make it street legal.
So you think your project is taking forever eh? Well you've got nothing on me.....

Speed sensor bracket does not line up straight, probably to clear the CNC slave cylinder. Anyone know if this will be an issue?

I have the same set up, but it certainly fits better than yours. :) They are very sensitive so I would imagine that you will have issues with the current position. The specs call for a gap of 1/16" to 1/8" . What transmission is that on?

Question: why didn't you go with a GPS type of speed-O?

This is more than just a curiosity for me on this as I am looking towards getting one myself. The only place it wouldn't work well I would think would be in a tunnel and maybe some heavily treed areas.

I keep getting logged out trying to answer this from my phone. Simple answer is I want this kind of speedo.

EDIT: now logged in with the laptop. Sorry for all the time I am taking in replying or getting back to the forum, my phone has all my pics and I have been logged out due to signal drop many times just trying to do the 2 replies posted above. My other option is to transfer pics to the laptop then reduce their quality somehow to what STF can handle. Either option is an exercise in frustration. I lurk often but to post means just logging in, writing/editing something meaningful, and getting it to post has about a 90 second window before logout with my current phone carrier and signal issues. Sprint sucks!

In other news Imp buggy #1 is separated from its pan and awaiting bodywork. Long term effort there.
