• This part of the project won't go into detail -- since there is just too much to cover. You want the original diagrams when messing with electrical. For the 1974 Super, you will also want to reference Bentley Publishers generic service manual for 1970-79 Beetles and Karma Ghia.

And of course, John Muir's "How To Keep Your Volkswagen Alive" is essential. These two manuals cover everything, including electrical.

• The wiring here was a mess. Diagrams and gauges provided by Watson's StreetWorks; 42 Draft Designs for diode lighted gauges and a few odd other diagrams. This rewiring took me A WHILE. Finished in 2018.
