Mark, the engine bay is very tight to work on, even changing the spark plugs is a chew on. The rear valance on a Bug is lower than the bumper :smt005
The Covin however only needed the bumper removing and the car supported on axle stands to fit T1 engine but the Bug is another story. I had axle stands on full height and 5 inch blocks of wood added and it still needed to go up quite a bit more.
The Bus engine was a piece of cake to do and only took me 30 mins from start to finish :smt004

A Removable rear valance on a Bug would mean you could fit the engine with minimum fuss and the vehicle lifted just enough to remove the wheels for better access to the gearbox bolts :smt012
