Re: Puma GTC 1987 -- ?s

harness ( in the past I have just got A 12 circuit wire kit from Speedway - it
worked well for my Bradly. Agin thank you very much.

Re: Puma GTC 1987 -- ?s

Also your rear body mounts are Type 3, the front disc brakes are from a Karmann Ghia, that rear swingaxle is the long axle version and the rear drum brakes are Type 3 VW, the drums unbolt from a hub and have wider shoes than a Beetle.
I used a Rebel harness in my GTC, it is not a bad job to do except there does not seem to be any schematics for the GTC or the GTI, I know they are similar to the earlier models but it is the steering column mounted switches that make things tricky as there is no schematic that I could find that was of any help. The GTE and GTS did not have the same column mounted switches. Take a look at my body off rebuild here it may help. http://www.volksrods.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37144
