Spence
I was going to give them a shout once I am back up on my feet about a 3" narrowed item and bung it on with some dropped spindles........
I might take my wings off and get the stone guard holes welded up and all repsrayed along with the decklid too.......
If I get the bonnet done I will be happy with the body paint then.
Just need to get the pan detailed at some point........think I will have to put some pennies aside.

IF i were you I would give tidders a call at deluxe motor works and buy the whole kit.....shocks/leaves/tie rods etc I think from memory the whole kit with everything you would need worked out around 550 quid....

Jeeezuz Spence, I thought the old header and box from the Kab were ropey!!
Pity I had to chisel the header off, that could have slipped onto the 72 and gone along with that rake you put on it.......

well, in the circumstances of all that rot & in keeping with it being a red beetle (passing on the baton so to speak), then all the good bits.........y'know the engine etc, should be transplanted into say another red beetle of there abouts the same age.............it'd be a tribute!

Now who do we know with an all red 70's beetle?? hmmmmm

geek lol!

Oooh, I've just remembered, is it okay to use the image of that Beetle drawing you posted up on a club t-shirt design?

I don't wanna get into any copyright issues with anyone.......

No worries dude. Dave kinda mentioned part of the story earlier. I understand 100%.
That's why I asked, I don't wanna p 1 55 anyone off.....

Might have a look round for a cool hardcore Bug image though.

Any suggestions from anyone gratefully received.......
