Havenít worked on it in a few months. Looking at selling my house, and been doing a ton of work to it, which has left no time for the Bug. The good news is that the new house Iím looking at has a bigger garage and more room to work on it so I may actually finish it.

I couldíve sworn Iíd answered you. Sorry. Update is that my wife and I have spent the last 3-4 months getting our house ready to sell. Looking for a house with a bigger garage. Then Iíll be able to work on the car more.
