this is her photoshopped and this is kind of what Gem wants it to look like

As you can see from the picks below alot of welding is needed!









Work will hopefully start in a couple weeks, carl has kindly offered to point us in the right direction as Sam has never worked on beetles before!

We got caught out. I bought her at bristol volksfest last year. Told there was a small hole in the battery tray when we brought her back and sam stripped her down we realised there was alto more work!!

Been too busy to do anything lately with big changes happening eg moving house but now we have settled we are ready to start on the cars!

Which is one reason we are having a shed clear out which you may see on other forums cus we are gonna pull the shed down.

If you know anyone who needs mk2 jetta or golf parts let us know what they need we may have it!

Good luck with the resto, I reckon you need to drop a nice Type 4 based lump in there, Porka fan and rims and a healthy dose of carbon!!!
Hubba hubba!!

Out of interest, did you put that scratch around this hole? If not that was done be an MOT tester, which means they would have known how rotten the car was...... No

I get hacked off with people like that!!

We actually looked at that post the other day!

We were very tempted - saw the word heater channels gone though!

But Sam likes the paint work! lol!

He would buy it but no where to put it at the mo!
