I spent 4 hours scraping old tinting from both door windows, not fun, but what an improvement!

Yes, you are right. Classic vee-dubs are better off without this ugly tint. I was planning of removing the tint of our '72 bay bus too!

I did the same thing two weeks ago on the side glass and back window of my fasty. Once I had the right tool (long handled scrapper with a razor blade on the end) it wasn't too bad. It made the car look much better. I even took my DAP when I was done and polished the windows. Looks pretty good now.

How did you get the tint off the back window without damaging the defroster wires? ---Installed new visors today.

The defroster wires are ALL so worn on Type 3's they never work anymore! One little missing bit ruins the circuit. If yours works it's 1 in 1,000?

Got the clutch disc, plate, t/o bearing and sleeve in from CIP1. Put it all together, took it off the stands, popped out the windows and drove it around in the 54 degree weather \:D/

I got it started at the top with the scrapper and was able to pull it off.

tuned my dual webers and drove my fasty for the first time..

sharkskinman Fri Feb 27, 2009 5:53 pm

-put my pop outs and rear windows in...(by myself)
they have seals but am expecting storm so i duct taped them temporarily


-mounted front bumper...(not bolted just sitting)
and realized PO must of ripped the rear bumper off because the studs of the bolts are still there on the driverside

-cleaned out fuel tank..(NO RUST AT ALL!)

-swept out junk out of the back
and took pics of rust
(mainly in the rear cargo area)

-cleaned her out and put all the random hardware(not much) in a box
there are bolts missing Everywhere
fenders, dach, bumpers......etc...
