The headlight switch, dipswitch, and ign. switch are nearly always badly burnt internally, and the fusebox can be a cause as well. If you have the patience dismantle and clean the fusebox (the contacts all pull apart) and then rebuild and solder all the contacts together, that can make a considerable difference. Earth wires (brown) are as important as all the others, make sure they make good contact with the body.

On my 6v Beetles I wired the headlights into their own circuit with a feed direct from the battery - and with QuartzH bulbs they were plenty bright enough to drive through the night. As Moby says - the issue is that 6v draws twice the current than 12v and so gives everything a harder time.
