On seals, baby

I installed the rear shocks on the beetle. I was going to do the front shocks, but Amazon sent me the wrong part (or, more like, listed the wrong part as being compatible, so I have to return them) :argh:. The 71-73 Super Beetle is a strange cookie, and I’m tired of one-year-only parts (3-bolt ball joints, strut cartridges, etc).

No pictures of the new shock absorbers in, but visualize KYB GR-2’s in a beetle and you’ll get the idea.

The old ones, though, were oem

And another box of Wago Lever Nuts came in. These are literally half the size of the old ones, and easier to use.

I also got a 10-pack of weatherproof Posi-Locks (called “Posi-Seal”) connectors. Gonna change those big ugly solar connectors on the bus out for these on the roof.
