this was my beetle project from a few years back.cheaply bought beetle with front end prang.to convert to pre67 style.what wasnt replaced would be easier to list.

After5 years on and off,yes that long lol, had to save the pennies to get bits and have someone weld and spray.the colour was a peugeot pastel blue.it was a stunning blue in the sun but looked more white in the halflight.notice the trick valance which could be bolted on and off for eng removal,yes i never did have anyluck with these engines hence the mod.

Nice Bug Danny... Bet you miss it a little now and I bet it would be worth a few quid as well.
Mind you, the Covin is a big improvement as it's Water Cooled m8 :smt012
I've got all the Fun of Air-Cooled to come with the Bus :lmao

You haven't got any Air-Cooled bit left over have you ? I'm going to York Next Sunday if you have :smt003

I'm easy either way with the vids, could easy keep the VW and other stuff on a seperate thread in there or just keep it for Covin only video. I'll leave it up to you as your the Video Director now :lmao :smt012

Ref: Bug.... You should have kept that one m8 after such a long resto job. Seems a shame to have sold it so soon after :smt005
Still. Times change don't they and sometimes you just have to let go of things and move on. Bit like me and the Cosworth :smt005 :smt005 really wish I'd kept that now.

Sorting through mags and found this.The old club mag i used to produce for the wrexham dubdaze vw club.We had around fifty members and met monthly at the local rugby club.How things have moved on with the internet.
