I decided over a week ago that it was time to replace the Karmann Ghia’s alternator with one that has an internal regulator. The first thing I did was some research.
Making a couple of calls I found one at Brian Roberts Auto Electric located downtown in Victoria BC. I bought this one and aid the core charge and wouldn’t you know it, I see one a couple of days later on cip1 in Vancouver for a cheaper than what I paid! Doesn’t that always happen! (http://www.cip1.ca/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=VWC-043-903-023-A) . I didn’t buy it because a. already had one and, b. would have to pay shipping and wait for it.
I wanted to get this done before the Volkfest that is this Sunday at Gyro Park.
Turns out there is also a Cadillac Only car show at Fort Rodd Hill so I might go to both.
What that means is that the Ghia might not be shown but will be parked nearby so people can check it out and engage in conversation. I can check out AND take photos of what is there, maybe even drumming up some business. My plan is to get going after a while to the other show and establish a couple of relationship there too. It never hurts to be motivated.
