i prefer the stripes to the geometric pattern.
stripes make things go faster remember.. just saying
I'm still undecided tbh. Flitting between the two.
It was about 90% solid but he couldn't sell it up here in Cumbria so chopped it up. Mine was maybe 20% solid but i was already a few years into the bodyshell welding or i'd have just used his complete shell.
I got the rear ends of the gutter off it too as they were 100% solid.
Baja bug O/S A pillar in need of some attention! Looking very crusty once I peeled the surrounding metalwork away.
Bottom 10cm chopped out and a quality autocraft repair panel tacked into place for now.
Door fitment and gaps checked to make sure A pillar repair is in the right place. Looking good.
The O/S A pillar bottom wasn’t in a good state either so needed chopping out.
And another autocraft A pillar repair tacked into place for now.
Barnaby the spanner dog stripping a bug door in the garden for me while we're in lockdown. 2 more to go.
Ahh the ole rare as hens teeth 3 door beetle
From the look on Barnaby's face he thinks you're doing something wrong.
Project came with more doors than I need, and I then bought another off Davidoft!
Genuine NOS door for the passenger side and then the nice driver's door from Davidoft will be going on the bug. The rest are toast really. I now have 4 knackered doors sitting in the garage.
The dog looks forever annoyed with me.
I think he's sucking air in through his teeth and thinking "I wouldn't do it like that mate.......squirrel"
