thanks very much guys and a very merry xmas to you tooo!!!!

very lucky to get it back......... especially when only the wheels air filter and a few engine bits were taken, relief on my side,

i rekon the hydraulic setup could be retro fitted to any standard beetle box, those with pull type action, and a very easy idea for those whose engines over heat a bit when driving too.

Hi all, finally back and doing work on the covin again, it's been 5 years and between moving houses, working abroad, having kids, and a million other automotive projects finally got my hands dirty doing the covin again.

You can imagine being in storage for that long has not been too good for my lil covin, but i'll get some pics and info as i list them.

At the moment it is fully stipped and just finished painting her, a bad reaction with the paint meant it needed re-doing, and the chance to improve some of the pannel fitments.

I was having so many problems with the existing modified door latches that i binned them alltogether, i'll take some pics for those who are having a similar problem.

If anyone needs some photo's of anything in particular, it's a good time to ask as i will probably do a full strip and rebuild.

Anyway good to be back on the forum and chat with you all again soon, Ivan

Hi guys, bit of an update, been a furious week, dry sanding thru the paint layers back to the body and spraying from scratch, what do you think, of the new color, not fully finished but have got a surprise for the final finish.
