I keep going for earlier parts on this thing

The round buttom off the lid is where it gone wrong if i had used the original flatter tip it would look modern

So now rear lights fenders etc etc are not super beetle period parts

Blades was the only thing i planned from the start

Still struggling with the top but will put everything on to see if the complete picture is good

maximum vents i could fit in the airbox/watertray

and yes they are always used in the lid itself but late 60' prototype could have been different

found out i really drop the ball on the top Embarassed was going for $$uper close to original
but i dont want to compromise the look with to top down and it being stacked up on the back 8inch high

plus side it is still all steel

Must say the same! Surprised Surprised Surprised

I'm looking for this project for some time, has I and my father in law also have one similar project...
It's a 1300L from 1969, that was converted into a cabrio on the 90's...

I plan a fake hebmuller... and my biggest challange will be for sure, the rear lid... yours is a true inspiration! Do you have more photos?

front bonnet cleaned and repaired fits good
first i also was going to remove the vent butt i put on a hood scoop backwards to make them less visible
there will be draft coming from everywhere so less air coming in should not be a problem
