  1. Hi all I brought my bay last Oct this is my first bay but Ive owned a 1303s bug .

    She needs a lot of work but found a guy local to me that's going the welding and going to be painting her .
    This is before I stated the work .
    Rear windows out and turned back into a panel Van rear
    Fixing all of the old bodge repairs

    I'll keep you all posted on the progress its at the welders workshop now so exciting times
    And I'll be changing the colour too !
    Pastel white roof and pastel green for the rest of the bay .

  17. Wow! Stunning. Out of interest what do you estimate the total cost was?
  18. Nobody mentioned it maybe I missed something... this is really a 79 Bay or a 69? (was that a typo?)

    It’s a 79 that’s been converted to look like a 69.
