    Hey, new member here. I tried signing up a few days ago but had troubles activating so here I am.

    I am the proud new owner of a (I believe) Fiberfab ’52 TD on a ’71 beetle chassis. Got her up and running and am currently working on wiring. Will be coming back with plenty of questions!

    Hi, and welcome!  Even though these TDrs are relatively electrically trouble free, they all seem to come with a fair share of electrical problems.  Not to worry, once fixed, they stay that way, unlike the Lucas equipped originals.

          Well so far going good, blinkers don’t work yet but we are getting there. Gotta get relays and everything too, it was pretty much stripped when I got it..

    Welcome to the group. 

    trouble with electricals on these things mostly=bad grounds. Find your ground strap(s) and re-attach them clean, then add two more. Then start trouble-shooting.
    Also: the brake light switch is in the master cylinder. It’s low down and crusty (usually). ANd you probably have a spare already attached. If the brakes aren’t lighting the lamps, switch switches and try again. That worked for me.
