For the 3rd brake light, I ran the ground in the engine compartment. For the positive, It’s just a spade connector on the rear tail light housing. Unplug the black/yellow brake light wire on the housing, plug in a spade T, plug the black/yellow wire and corvette 3rd brake light positive on it and your done. I also installed a two prong trailer plug on the engine lid, in case I need to remove the engine lid. I also used 1/4” shrink tubing for the positive wire to the trunk.

Nice job Steve...good safety upgrade. Because of you I updated two of my cars to Spoke LEDs. Love them.

I'll have to check out your 3rd brake light next time I see you.

I got the idea from Keith’s and Jim’s 914’s. They also both have it installed.

Replaced the ignition switch in the 'BB' ... she's running fine (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Also, finally got to test out the hydraulic clutch system that I installed a little over a year ago (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Picked up a 2011 WRX trans. I will get it to mate with my VQ35de using paper drawings... or not (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sheeplove.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

I've also got an idea for a not MR2 cable shift setup to fiddle with.

Looking at the Subaru manual transmissions, I'm not impressed with the available gear ratios. I've been looking at the Audi 6 spd trans - looks badass when it's hooked to the EG33... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

Since I was able to get a new ignition switch and start the 'BB' up, I got to test out the hydraulic clutch system that I installed last year. Happy to report that it's working great and the 'BB' will be able to get loaded onto a transport under it's own power [to it's new home in South Carolina] (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad2.gif)

So, in anticipation of someday getting back to work on the '71 ('Howard'), today I decided to order another Wilwood 260-6089 master cylinder, 260-1333 slave cylinder, and the awesome mounting kit from David Willouby (dwillouby) for it. I'll pick up tubing and the AN-3 fittings from Earl's Supply when I start in on that portion of the project ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chowtime.gif)

Until then, more rough carpentry, electrical, drywall, finish carpentry, painting and carpeting tasks are all I can see me doing for the near future (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Maybe I'll have Howard ready for the Route-66 Run in 2019 ? ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Got it shipped from Puerto Rico to our new home in Lenoir, NC. Was completely covered in salt and gave her a good wash. Now to figure out how to register it here! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Spent all day cleaning up the garage to get the 914 into. Last time I had my own Porsche in the garage was over 10 years ago I think.

Then I removed the axles and shift rod. Hope to drop motor tomorrow morning.

I put most of the interior back together in the 'BB' ... had taken a lot of it apart when I was installing the hydraulic clutch system last year. Also started putting some spare parts in the trunk(s).

Almost ready for the transport company to come pick it up. I'd like to take it for a little drive around the neighborhood before they come though (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Actually, I had my eye on this car on the Samba. He changed his ad the other day to a lower price and added "or trade?' to it.

I messaged him and described my '55 bug, he said he was interested.

We met this morning, and in a no money deal, signed papers over to each other and drove off in each other's car(s).

Weird, straight up trade. This is an extremely dry car from Prescott, Arizona and I got all of it's history too. It is just a lovely car, much better and peppier on the road than the bug.

My poor 914 sits there. (I do drive it.)

The Bug was sweet but it's hard to beat a clean running Ghia - Congrats! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Maybe it’s a 914 Karman thing, but I love Karman Ghias. That would of been a no brainer trade for me. Congrats!!
