Does it have a key with VW logo and with complete wiring as well?

Yes it does along with the ignition switch. Do send me your pics if any just to make sure we are on the same page.

Here is a picture from wolfsburgwest website, let me know if it is similar and do you have a pix you can send? When you said original, is it also a common lock for the door? The 1966 one came with a common key for the ignition and the doors.

Thx

What I meant was this....I think I have what you have shown in the picture. No it has separte keys. Your current door keys will continue to hold good and the switch will operate from separte keys.

pre67 models did not have steering lock facility and if my info is correct it did not have column mounted ignition switch also(not absolutely sure).
also as srisha said the doors and ignition had the same keys with profiles like K,SU etc.
The original Steering column assembly pictures are attached here

Yes, Ajay is right. The 66 ones came with dashboard mounted ignition. They were not mounted on the steering column, i just read online and saw some dashboard pictures of 66 model and they had them on the dashboard.

Default Rear windshield sourced

Finally sourced the rear windshield for my beetle, this one came off from the one zozimo had posted some time back. Picked up a lot of spares from that beetel.

Here are the pictures of the windshield, and I must admit that the packing was done really well,

This will be fitted post all the other accessories i sourced from Singapore.

It most likely is a repro in that case. Else SEKURIT should be mentioned on it. Any reason why you wanted to buy one as I believe there is one on your car isn't it?

After all the touchups, the car would really look a beauty Classic Drive. Congrats for your great B'day gift. Hope you get it cleaned up sooner than later.

The one on his car happened to be not a glass but a PLASTIC sheet cut out in the shape of the windscreen and fitted on. It was mentioned earlier in this thread too. Which is why he went for this glass.

Correct shyam,

It had a fibre glass sheet. We paid almost 8K to get the glass from Goa.

Present updates.

1) Engine is down
2) Gearbox down
3) New gearbox mounts replaced
4) New engine mounts replaced
5) Carb split open for an ovehaul
6) Bowden cable installed

Pending work to be done soon.

1) Drawing some fuel lines which are only rubber pipes
2) New door handles with keys to lock the door getting installed
3) Rear right brake leaking, need to replace the cylinder kits
4) Gravel guards to be installed
5) Seat mountings to be checked
6) Rear tail lights mounting to be completed
7) Rear windshield glass to be fixed.


With lot of other restorations around, its becoming a tight rope walk for me right now.

Default Overhauling the VW Carb, with Brosol Rebuild kit

Whenever it comes to Carbs, i make sure, i do it myself.

Since getting these kits are damn tough, you cant do anything if the Mechanic screws up

So i start rebuilding the 30 PICT-2 carb for Srisha's car.

Basically this car should have a 28 PICT carb, but that carb was in a bad shape, and i had transplanted the 30 PICT one way back during restoration.

The carb was fine, but was actually a bit sluggish, and few drops of fuel use to drip from the Venturi spindle, which by VW standards is Worst.

Would not talk much, let the pics do all the talking.
