I have got to post a photo of the inside of the Jap beetle.
I have a superior 500 walnut and a GB shifter in it...
I like the new look of the shifters.

Yes, it's a 1972 4 dr with 42K original miles, my newest project

My wife wants me to sell it, though

Thanks, the Wolfsburg West bumpers are real nice, but it does take a little finess to make the uprights fit perfect. The chrome plating is top notch!

I have cheap bumpers on mine and the uprights were way off, I really want some uprights and am going to try and find some I can make sure fits.
worst case scenario I will buy some cheap ones and cut them to fit and have them rechromed

I had to open up the holes on the bumper so the guards would fit flush across the top of the blade. Then I had to paint the holes so they won't rust

its a shame that parts arent made better especially since when they were new they fit nice. with todays technology you would think it would be better.

Picked up some early pop-outs, I'm going to have the frames blacked out to go with the style of my Oval

Yeah, it wouldn't look right to have one piece windows, Cal-look rubber, and shiny framed pop-outs on the Oval

Nice, I was just wondering the other day what the status of the interior was. Hadn't seen an update in a while. This car is going to be super clean. Can't wait to see it.
