I had the firestones hand mounted (no tools)... it ensures that the wheels don't get scratched as the tires go on.

Lowlight ghia wheel
52brezelfenster
Just got my lowlight wheels back from the painter.

Note the location of where the pearl white and black meet. It's in a different location vs a bug wheel. We used an original paint wheel to come up with the precise spot, and they are gorgeous!

Firestone wide whitewalls are next.

Original Low light ghia windshield logo
52brezelfenster
It was hard to get my camera to focus, but this is what the logo looks like on an original low light ghia windshield.

For reference, if anyone wants to make a stencil and reproduce it, this piece of glass is out of a 58. My low mileage unrestored 59 coupe had the same piece of glass / same logo in it.

It reads:
Kinonglas-Kristall
~D-05

NOS Ghia Steering Wheel

NOS Ghia Steering Wheel
52brezelfenster
NOS ghia steering wheel. Wheel only is NOS, not the horn ring or horn ring cover. Located at a swap meet in the 1980s. I know of one other early ghia steering wheel that is NOS and it's not installed on a car.

The horn ring was re-chromed to show standards.

I had a paint shop expertly match the back side of the horn ring cover to the original shade of gray. We decided to use that since it hadn't seen any direct sunlight. The flash of the camera makes it look a little lighter than the actual paint itself.

The wolfsburg emblem is an original that was sent out for restoration and came back absolutley flawless.

The perfect nose
52brezelfenster
Here's what a pristine, never been hit, never been tapped, ghia nose looks like from the inside. Talk about uncommon, especially on a 50s convertible.

Note how uniform the vertical seam is from this angle.

Ghia front bulkhead is purdy
52brezelfenster
I spent hours with a tooth brush, q-tip, and polishing compound getting the front bulkhead area spotless. Fuel petcock is nos.

My goal is to get the paint finish on the bottom of the gas tank and the area behind it to a mirror shine. In my opinion, this sets the "best of the best" quality cars apart from the rest.

True red upholstry in my 59 ghia convertible. Seat buns aren't overstuffed as often seen in restorations.

They feel like the day it rolled off the assembly line. Very comfortable!

Interior shot. My seat frames were done wrong. The whole frame was powder coated (off white color-cant remember actual color code) when the bar that lets you adjust the seat back and forth was supposed to remain chrome.
