A long delay in posting but solved the Super Beetles issue with wobbling. When I was in Flagler a few months ago and while replacing my third brake light switch (brake fluid leaking through spades on switch, junk), I checked all components of suspension and steering and to my surprise found that the bolt that connects the idler arm to the rest of the steering was full loose and a thread or so away from falling off, not good. Apparently when I was reassembling I forgot to tighten it down/torque, at least it wasn't something important.
I went to the nearest hardware store picked up the proper size nylok nut and heavy washer and retightened to what felt appropriate from a steering tightness perspective (no torque wrench). Wobble is gone and the steering is much tighter, amazing. Clearly avoided a disaster of my own making, my favorite saying " have met the enemy the enemy is us." (Pogo comic strip).
Meet with Colin in Flagler at end of next week to work out some of the remaining issues on Layla; fuel smell, fuel gauge, window alignment, non-working wipers, etc.. Man I love driving her around the beach area, now if I only had confidence in longer drives (longest drive has been 20 miles or so). When I was a teenager I would take my 63 VW every where and it was in much worse shape than Layla, age dulls the adventurous part of the soul I suppose.
