VW Beetle Update


I spent last week at my parents', working on the Beetle.  It's so close to being done!  We finished the convertible top installation that didn't get done during my last trip.  All we have left on the top is some rubber around the windows and putting in the back glass.  When the top is completely finished, we will have a step-by-step video to share!

Besides working on the top, I replaced the elastic in the door panel pockets, cleaned up a few more parts, and did a few other projects that aren't pictured but will be revealed later!



Dad carpeted the front trunk before I got there, and it looks so good!


There are just a few things left to do before it's ready for daily drives!

I did drive it some while I was there, and I'm getting better at it!  It shifts/drives differently than my 1977 Triumph Spitfire, so I'm having to work a little harder on making myself get used to driving the Bug!

Here are some phone videos sent to me from my dad and brother from the last few months (nothing from this particular trip).

This video is from the very first time the Beetle was driven out of the shop!

These next two videos are from the beginning stages of the car first running.
