The previous owner was inspecting it with an eagle eye.






In the end i think he was quite pleased with the outcome.




Will post more detailed interior pics tomorrow

Swap them for a set of Amby reverse lights. With a thick chrome surround, they look much smarter. I have them on my President.

Also, you need to fill in the hubcap centres around the logo in black. A very delicate process.

Thats because the suspension set up is brand new as always is the case with these older cars, it will have to be run in with some weight in the boot. Once it settles down, it will be fine.

Thumbs up

Congrats Gogi Uncle!!!

She looks gorgeous. (especially when you say there is more polising and detailing remaining - you big bludgger )

Make room for some more trophies and badges is all i have to say.

What happens to her now? You keeping her or is the previous owner getting it back??

In case i didn't mention it, awesome work.

Gogiji, who gave you power of attorney over my Special?

Waiting for interior/dash pics. The work on the seats is top notch, though Id have preferred a deeper colour. Will he do my Beetle interiors? (at the same cost he charged you )

Congratulations Gogibhai - put both pre and pist restoration pictures side by side then everybody can realise the effort we all take.

When do we tune the engine ? The fuel lines are very old and need to be changed as well.

Best regards,
