Disassembled the fenders today.
I broke a piece on one of the tail lights where the stud is mounted. The nut underneath was a little too rusty â€“ I probably should have
Kroil’ed it first. Also found a huge wasp nest condominium inside one of the headlights.
Work time: 45 minutes. Photos following:
Fenders. In all their glory…
Front turn signals are frosty. They aren’t supposed to be.
Taking apart the turn signal.
Underneath the lights. All the wiring had been cut in preparation for conversion to ‘dune buggy’.
Front light. I think the glass covers are so much cooler-looking than later bugs’ lights.
Hmm. Is the wiring normally soldered on to the lights directly?
Headlight basin with headlight removed.
Taillight removed. Original paint color underneath?
I have some replacement glass already.
Wasps, rust, and headlights, Oh My!
Tail-light mounting bracket broke during removal.
I’ll have to fashion a new bracket when remounting this tail light.
