The VW Spectacular held every two years at Nambucca Heads [Valla Beach]
is on again this year on the 2nd and 3rd of August 2008
 
Many VW owners come to this seaside township for a weeks holiday which includes the VW show..
 
On the Saturday morning from 10am to 12 noon the main street is FULL of VWs of all kind...
 
On the Sunday there is a huge Show and Shine and SwapMeet at Valla Beach resort..
 
This will be the first time I've taken My beetle the 850 km round trip, even though I have been attending this venue for many years..

its getting close...
 
longest trip ever in My beetle
 
and i have a few things that either have to be done Now
 
or left until I return...
 
High riser preheated pipes are blocked and with the Cold -1C
temperatures .. engine is still going and i have the vents in the engine cover taped over..
 
I also need to do some electrical work which would include replacing the original fuse box with a new one with blade fuses plus a bit of re wiring..
 
I also have a pair of camber/caster adjusters to fit to the front end and adjust the camber/caster
and refit the anti sway bar...
 
I may just fit the anti sway bar and take it off to do the adjusters when i get back..
as the front wheel alignment will need adjusting too..
