Update! More work done. Lots of cutting, fitting, and modifying.


This is the driver door gap filled in from a piece of my donor roof. Looks like it isnt straight, but it is. Some fitting of ...

So.. Chopping the A and B pillars were child's play compared to figuring out this rear end.. I measured and stared for at least a week before cutting. I suppose this will be a modified Capella chop ...

This Beetle more or less fell in my lap. A dry, solid 66 with a couple dents and a million little dings. Id never considered building a beetle other than my wifes 64. But its here.. and im B ...

I see your point there. Id like to keep the original look at least. How about a 1969 bus reservoir? Would that fit the beetle master correctly? I much prefer the reservoir on master setup. Seem ...

Gotcha on the pedal stop. I had it in my mind it would limit travel of the pedal forward for some reason.

MC plunger not returning does make sense. I'll be sure to check that! And bummer if I ...

Its a mystery to me. Both e-brake cables were busted in the rear, one drum was full of brake fluid and trans oil and heavily caked everywhere inside. When hitting the brakes, the rear brakes were no ...

If the Weddle unit fits, I don't see why this aftermarket nose wouldn't. Good idea, pulling the coupler from the car.

Best advice yet as long as they are seepage type leaks that amount to little or nothing dripping on the ground.

Its leaking all over the ground. A lot.
