Has anyone performed a removable apron on a Ghia. I want to do it for my '64.

It's not down to you Don it was the original poster used the online picturehosting website "Photobucket" to show his pictures. "Photobucket" changed their terms of service earlier this year and many pictures will no longer show without payment.

You can PM "Bones" to see if he will post the missing pictures to The Samba Gallery.

It's a Mallory that I bought from Mallory when they were located in Carson City back around 2005 or so.

I've since sold the car.

That is nicely done. Did you use some kind of quick disconnect to split the decklid release cable?
