Instead of talking about what hasn't held up in the past five years here is a list of what has and from where. Ill add to it if I remember anything else.

Rear deck lid seal, Wolfsburg West
Body to pan seal, Wolfsburg West
Door Window Moldings, German, Wolfsburg West
windshield and rear window seals, Wolfsburg West
headlight wiring conduit, Wolfsburg West
OIL BREATHER RUBBER VALVE from West Coast metric. other brand cooked in a month.
Beetle Vent Wing Rubber, German, ( the one that goes in the frame) Wolfsburg West
Engine tar Board, Wolfsburg West
front signal light seals Wolfsburg West ( but I like the WCM ones I put on my 66 better)

and this is why I'm pissed anything has cracked up, the rear signal light housing seals to body from I don't know where. they came with the car and are probably twenty years old not OG but I would guess J Bugs cause the PO really liked them.


Forgot, German master Cylinder and German wheel cylinders from WW and three out of four rubber brake hoses. one got attacked by grease with in months. The replacement is from a local place, Bug City. I was able to walk in pick it up and we were out cruising the next day.

Hoping to take Herbie to this

The CVA's "Last Hurrah" Sunday December 4th

Don't put your VW in winter storage yet, we still have one more event to go! Sunday December 4th, "weather permitting" we will be gathering at the Westbrook Town Beach 401 Seaside Ave. Westbrook Ct. 06498 from noon to 3:pm for our Last Hurrah. Last year was our biggest turn out yet with a few of us participating in the town's Annual Tree Lighting parade afterwards, decorating is encouraged! Are you crazy enough to go to a Volkswagen event in December? For more info contact Bill 860-395-9964 [email protected] or Chris [email protected] or www.westbrookct. us for Tree Lighting details.

I went and saw some great VWs. I saw yours and it looked really good and I saw some others that looked good. I liked the bay windows and if I'm not wrong Stanagon was there in the mango. It was a great show and it was great to see all the VWs!

Good thinking. I did a lot of walking too, back and forth between busses and bugs. I talked to a guy with a '70 deluxe bus he had a z bed in, he was real nice and told me all about it and a guy with a newer motor in a red bug that was getting close to 500 horsepower. Next event is the swap and meet up at tanger, I'm hoping to get there.

WOW,
I stared at the stance of this car at Frog Rock 17' all afternoon !
I just saw your 66 build thread as well as I was trying to figure out who owned the white Herbie from Frog Rock after seeing the pics .
Great job on both !

I was lucky enough to get out with Herbie one last time for the 2017 season.

Finally got around to some tire and wheel swapping. Now Herbie has the proper wheel, for a spare anyhow and I can put the spare belt into it like people do.
