Finally started ny KG restp project


Bought the Karmann Ghia end of last year from another member. Finallly and after collecting a number of parts I have started the restoration. Gathered a lot of information and received a lot of help from various members of Aussie which is greatly appreciated. Can only say that the elders and many people on this forum are the most helpful people on the planet and I would like to thank them all. So hereare some photos of what things look like at the moment. I will update over the next little while as things progress.
Good thing to decide to do a body off restoration. Found rust in sills, back quarters and back wheel panels that were hidden by bogg.

Yeah Pat, was nice chatting with you as well. Cant wait to see your KG when it arrives. Sounds like you really go yourself a nice one and a lowlight on top of it.

Dave, finally got the pictures up, better late than never I guess. How about a few photos of yours. Hope there were no surprises. looking forward to seeing your progress as well.

Being new to the resto game found that its a lot slower than I thought it would be more loke a snail race for me haha. Good luck with yours Dave.
