The re-assembly on the VW Beetle is going really well. The wings and doors are bolted back onto the car, the wiring has been completed and we have fitted the classic Porsche 944 seats that the customer wanted in the car:

  • VW Beetle

    The engine is now in & the rear lights ready to test

  • VW Beetle

    Once the exhaust is in & the fuel tank is installed we can fire this engine up

  • VW Beetle

    New chrome trim fitted, headlining should be fitted next week along with the glass

  • VW Beetle

    Custom seat fitting kit installed so that these Porsche 944 seats could be fitted

  • VW Beetle

    Not long to go now...

Next week we will be installing the headlining, glass and pop out rear windows. Now that the new tail pipes have arrived and we have cleaned out the fuel tank, we should have the engine running next week too.

The engine is installed and we have cleaned it up, fitted new tinware and installed a new distributor and carburettor. It is the original engine for the Beetle and we can’t wait to hear it run for the first time in 3 years.
