Looks great, but I expect that from Kip. That looks like the same carpet he used on my Volksrod. You will be ready just in time for the show season!

The carpet is German Square weave, I ordered the interior from West Coast Classics, but decided to go wall to wall on the stuff, so Kip ordered a couple of extra yards. It's what the factory put in way back when. Thanks for the positive comments, guys, Kip's finishing up the headliner today- Very Happy

Thanks, the interior kit is from Lenny, but Kip is adding some of his own custom touches- like the red panels under the seat that hide the battery, and the custom stitched boot for the Berg shifter- nice work Very Happy

Stopped by Loves Trim yesterday, Kip and David were hard at work on my interior. Also enjoyed visiting with Bryce when he stopped in-

Some more shots for your viewing pleasure












Here are a couple of shots showing my black framed pop-outs in the car








And, finally, Kip and David scratching their heads over what to do with the corners of my grafted ragtop- (hint- the braces I welded in had to come out for the headliner to go up into the corners and look right)

Looking great! Those black pop outs are awesome, hard to tell they are even there.


uh-oh, I've seen that look on David's face before, he just let one rip on your new seats!

Back in 1987 when I built the car, I converted the '68 Beetle seat belts to just lap belts. I'm going to keep the buckle on the tunnel, and add some retractors for the lap belts

I didn't have any anchor points in the b pillar, they would have to be welded in- your car might have them, though
