comment 1974 VW Bug Headliner
Can you be more specific about the procedure and equipment you used? Just asking for more suggestions doesn't seem likely to produce any new information for you, without knowing where you're starting from.

comment More economic to buy new car and sell quickly or buy a used one?
You might have a look at the Personal Finance & Money site; please check if this has already been asked there, however.

This question is off-topic because it's about finance, not repair and maintenance.

comment Maximum resting 12V car battery voltage
It sounds like you want to power an electrical device in your car only when the engine is running. If checking the charging system voltage isn't working, there should be another circuit that you could use. Ignition for one, although you probably don't want to touch that. Tach/engine speed sensor or fuel pump might be an option for your "engine on" signal.

comment Why do open differentials drive the wheels on the ground when a vehicle drives on two?
The second step in the Car and Driver article you linked is to weld the differential shut. It also says "High-skiing for long distances requires specially built tires". Doesn't modificaiton seem like the most likely explanation here? (Interesting post, though, for sure!)

comment How inaccurate is the stock wideband 02 sensor in the SG9 Subaru Forester XT at WOT
What about turning this around? See if you can find the info for any sensor and install that one in place of the original.

comment Intermittent starting trouble with new battery
Loose connection at the starter motor was my first thought. Check all your electrical cables.
