Posted a few pics when i joined up but thought id put a little pic thread here too tou

How it was looking end of last year...



not much to update since then really....

took all the interior out the other week to paint the floors, evrythings good, not rotten and no non-intended rust that i can see.

hammerited in black.

while i was there i took the beam out and commenced on a small mission to get a bit more clearance... i now have 1" of clearance, ace Very Happy

sunroof also came out and fell to pieces in my hands. luckily managed to find a 2nd hand one in much better condition, so il spray that soon and get it fitted, along with my new seals (bloody expensive! thanku vwheritage! grr lol)

also had 2fit 4new draintubes to the sunroof undertray, 3out of 4of the originals were blocked so thought i may aswell replace them, all working good now so it shouldnt leak!!

currently sitting like this with no roofrack...



camberrr....



new clearance (my beams not rotten! just hadnt protected the welds at that point lol)...




and some xmas cruise pics...



i showed that gordano services speedbump who was boss...



and its party trick....



and finally a picture my mate took/edited

i need help to value this as it may be for sale very soon!

66 bug
original golde sunroof in working order with golde handle,
new sunroof seals, drain tubes and 2nd hand rust free sunroof panel fitted at a cost of £150
in past 5yrs its had nearly everything underneath replaced, beam, brakes, fuel lines, track rods, wheel bearings, all lines...
cb perf drop spindles
narrow adjustable beam
rayvern hydraulics
safari front windscreen
tmi vinyl seat covers and door cards (not mint, but better than most original seats)
smart car front tyres
recon 1600 engine, goes really well, never let me down!

mot for another couple of months, wont take much to go through the next, dipped beam doesnt work, may need brakes adjusting, dont think any welding needs doing!

I fookin lurrrve this bug...i REALLY do
every time i see it,it brings a big cheesy grin to this old ugly mug of mine

How many splines are you down on the arse end dude

Tis a shame you may have to sell her

Value wise................motors seem to be hanging around on the for sale bits for a good while it seems...
Bare in mind this is MY opinion and prices oop here near me are way different than darn sarf............
Also keep in mind, to some, the rat loomk dont appeal..........
So,


if this were MY bug and keeping in mind i just sold my wifes spotless almost totally standard 71 bug for £2800 cash, i would look at putting this up for sale any where between £3000 and £4000...............BUT for that price i would be selling it with FULL MOT and EVERYTHING sorted on it.....................i'll await the flaming now
Out of interest......the front beem on yours would be ball joint......would i be correct??????

If you DO decide to sell ( and i really hope your not FORCED to) have a think on if you would maybe sell the hydraulics seperate...
Cos, depending on if they would fit king n link pin beem and the price is in my range i may be interested in them for my oval


anyways..............fahookin lurvely bug..............KEEP it.......KEEP it all
