they go right out to the 1/4 panels.


i bought genuine ones when i did mine and they were cheaper than that.

you can buy just the small plate to close the heater channel up.

Looking at the pic of the engine, I nearly creamed myself. LOVELY.

Love the colour of the seat frames and rear seat lower support, against the seats and the piping. Cracking EXCELLENT job.

Some nice touches on the car, so many, you keep spotting bits here and there when you look at the pics several times, bet it's even nicer in real life.

Hope you have fun with it.

Just looked back at what you started with, you forget how much hard work that has been put into it, AMAZING HOW IT'S TURNED OUT. Great to see another Beetle saved and to this standard, STUNNING.

Popped out the unit today to paint the tank and i needed some pictures for my insurance.






























not a million miles away now,
set wheel align, get engine running and set up, check all the bolts.



bought some front shocks but they seem way to hard,
does anyone have any mini rear shocks i can try, to see if they are the right size.
