semi auto karmann resto
« on: February 19, 2007, 03:31:39 PM »
Not sure how this will work as my son has set up a web site for me.

Today I have started on a resto of my 71 semi auto karmann beetle.

The web site address is www.vw-resto.piczo.com where you will find a number of pictures.

I knew I would find some problem areas but as I should have expected there a few more bits than was expected. However back at the garage tomorrow and will start to cut out some of the old rot.

I must say It is not me doing the skilled work. I am just doing the labouring. Bought a front half of a reasonably good car to act as a donor and purchased new year wings, apron and various other panels.

Will add some more pics tomorrow. Feel free to comment.
