Why am I moderated?

Thank you guys. I wasn't too sure what was going on. Agreed and understood that it's a way of eliminating spammers. A good move.

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

Thanks for advice RE: heater. I'm not aware of that being an issue with a 64 beetle, but I'll check.

Now with pictures - Hopefully this works. This is just a few random pictures from various stages of the build to date.

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

Here's an update guys. I can only hope that a Moderator will approve this post sometime soon, as it never happened last time. No idea why I'm 'moderated'. Now about 70% of the way through the conversion process. Have installed AC motor, run 96V cabling through the former heater ducts, completely gut...

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

Hi all,

Was going to post an update with pictures, but this forum seems to keep rejecting my posts. I'm about 70% of the way through the build.

Any ideas? Not even sure if this one will work

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

Just providing an update guys. All of the gear that I need, other than batteries, are on a ship from the USA.

I'll be removing the ICE from my Beetle in just a few weeks time. Can't wait to get started.

Will provide updates here and there, hopefully with a few pictures too!
Cheers
Andrew

AC-50 based 64 Beetle build

It has been something on my mind for some years, and as an Electrical Engineer it takes my interest. The build will be AC-50 based with a Cu...
