Nice work performed on the vehicle. I like it a lot. The dash clock is pretty neet. You must have sourced out some of the accessories for sure. I will finally say what an attractive woman also...does she get to drive the vehicle?

Wonderful car. It's super clean!

Croatia is on my list of places to visit. How's the VW scene there?

The bug must have been the perfect car for a retro event. I like the two tone interior with cloth and leatherette. Was that a custom job or is that available for order?

You have a very beautiful city. You should be proud. It should be my turn to pick our next vacation spot. I'm pushing for Croatia. I've wanted to go for many years but somehow we end up somewhere the wife wants to go.. I'm not sure how I keep losing. Think

Yes that was custom job. I did not find original cloth for seat (amazon green mosaic) but this cloth was most similar to the original

I am really loving the single gauge grill to the left of speedometer. Was this an original accessory? Does anyone reproduce this?

Can I ask what was your method?

It looks like maybe you overlaid a template and then brushed some form of resin or epoxy over the grill slots, then smoothed out and detailed the perimeter of the circle in the slots.

Clever Wink
That's clean finishing, if you didn't reveal your technique, no one would've guessed, me thinks.
Thanks for your reply.
