Grey 57 - March 30th, 2003 at 08:35 PM

Pete isnt the real question "will Dave be doing any work at work on Monday"

Nice car Dave, I luv that Blue on Beetles.

Tazzielittle - March 30th, 2003 at 08:50 PM

Its good to see another VW on the road..
Good job Dave!

vw54 - March 31st, 2003 at 07:36 AM

yeah this one has taken some time... but its been enjoyable,,,, did all the little things over the years untill i had the funds to get the major body work done.

I would like to thank Qantas for there generious donation to the fund.

And Carlton n United.... :puke

That pic dosent show the true colour...

speedster356 - March 31st, 2003 at 07:43 AM

Hmmm, good point Grey57.
The question has been asked several times before" is this a chemical manufacturing plant or a VW workshop?".
Looks like we have to update the "work carpark shot" Dave. Thae Sea Blue will add a nice contrast to the collection..

vw54 - April 2nd, 2003 at 07:22 PM

I had the craps with my rear screen glass... it had a stain on the glass which i though wouldn tshow up... but out in the sun light it did ... so this arvo i kicked the screen out n got another screen from the archives.. much betterererere....

Its just that i have spent the last hour fitting the staino chrome trim to the rubber... and its driving me made sometimes those trim windows can take hours.. and besides i heard the putor calling

Goldie ragtop sunroofs for Beetles stop in Australia in May 1966

I have an origional VW parts catalogue that shows it...

I will be taking some pics next week so hopefully they will show the colour better. Yes i have all the reference numbers for this colour.

The heater is stuck but only until i can get underneath...

Cool, nice touch.
Who did you rag roof?
As I`m about to recover one myself soon.
If you can email me some info,that would be neat.:thumb

vw54 - April 12th, 2003 at 07:48 PM

The cover material is from Chucks Convertables in LAX and is Mercedes Material

I fitted it material to the sunroof which took about 6 or 7 goes to get it right and stretched out to fit the corners correctly.

And of course its a Genuine Goldie Sunroof, fitted Standard .
