  1. Simon, you could always vinyl wrap the Bug in Carling

  4. Tonight I managed to weld in the last of the rear quarter pannel inside the door and fill the small gaps around the bottom with a few small plates, then set to work on the bodywork as not really touch this side and it was a mess so may take some time to get as straight as possible!! It's never gonna be perfect as had to much wedding and patching but I want it to look nice
