Puttputt instead of ROARR PUTT PUTT RRRRRR – Vanagon muffler bracket

New muffler today, only had to split one nut with a chisel. My neighbors will be grateful

Fortunately, I had checked my muffler strap beforehand and ordered a replacement. Below right you see what the stock VW one looks like after a few years and on the left, one of Terry Kay’s fantastic hand-made stainless steel straps. Not only better, but actually much cheaper than the VW part.

Also replaced the broken spare tire lock with a new one and picked up aluminum stock to make a tiltable frame for the solar panels. Tune in tomorrow…
