The KG will be slightly modified, full restorations are 100K+... Paint is next - Anthracite grey with blackout bumpers etc, I've got some nice 17" AirEvo's for it, Leons motors has built me a 2054, Willem at Platinum will be trimming the interior in red leather and it will be low and lean... Something like the pic attached.. but convertible!

Anthracite grey nice colour with the red trim similar to my Oval

Are you having Over riders on the bumpers Smooth look boltless bars would be good as well

No over riders at this stage. Will see how the current bumpers come up after paint

Seeing your going to slightly modify the Ghia Do you have original headlights there very hard to find these days

Ive seen a Ghia done using Beetle headlights cutting the bucket into the guard at the same angle as the windscreen gives it a great look
