VW Beetle Steering Wheel Button Clock

I did find one on Amazon (link is in the description of the video) which was suitable and I just stuck it to the speaker grill. I immediately hated it and began looking for other locations to put the clock. The steering wheel button became the perfect spot! Though you can buy the center cap with a clock installed, I thought it’d be a lot of fun to make my own.

I’ve been wanting to do this repair for a couple of years now. The only thing not working properly on Mabel was the brake warning light. This configuration is specific for the 1968 and 1969 year Beetles. So today was the day to dig into it and figure out why it wasn’t working. This project turned out to be a lot easier than I had anticipated and it was really a simple fix. Enjoy the video, hope it gives you some ideas and clarity.

One Last Update To The Poor Man’s Swamp Cooler

Poor Mans Swamp CoolerPoor Mans Swamp CoolerPoor Mans Swamp CoolerPoor Mans Swamp CoolerAfter taking a closer look at the finished product and thinking it over for a few days, I decided to paint the brace for the swamp cooler the same color as the cooler itself. If I didn’t like it, I could easily revert right back to the blue. But after it was painted, there was no doubt in my mind that the brace looks 100 times better painted the same color as the cooler.

I decided to keep it satin rather than gloss, but I can always go back and change that. I’m very pleased with the end result, it looks a lot more like a vintage swamp cooler now!

Updating The Poor Man’s Swamp Cooler Part I

DIY Vintage Swamp CoolerDIY Vintage Swamp CoolerDIY Vintage Swamp CoolerDIY Vintage Swamp CoolerDIY Vintage Swamp CoolerIt’s time to take our “vintage looking” swamp cooler and really make it look vintage. The prices for real vintage swamp coolers are through the roof. Last year we found a guy who sells reproduction swamp coolers that are actually pretty functional at fraction of the cost of real vintage swamp coolers. We’ve used it for over a year and have been very pleased with it. Now it’s time to start upgrading it to actually look a little more vintage or at least my vision of vintage. Part I of this upgrade is complete and outlined in the following video. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for some warmer days to move on to Part II.
