hi im from coventry i bought my first bug a 69 lhd dutch import from bristol "FREDA" 4 months ago to attempt my first resto project after always owning mk2 gti's,started to strip it down to look for the rusty stuff cutting it out and welding prior to preping bodythen began to paint 5 coats of flame red with flatting in between each coatthen started to reassemble fitting wing rubbers was a bitch!and trying to get eng lid an bonnet to line up was bit tricky tostarting to take shape at lastthen moved on to interior bought some cream leather wanted some thing that looked old style not modern crisp or sportyso they out of a rover 75???i know rover and 4 door after some serious cutting and welding they are on original beetle runners so fit and tilt lovely now to the whole reason i even knew you boys(and girls )i was fitting screen earlier and found this the last time it was taxed was 05 so some one on here must have owned or know"freda" so posted this post to let them know she is still alive and kicking but kicking it in the midlands cheers nic

Brilliant - she's born again, nice one nic. lol
I will dig out some old photo's - she was a project of mine while i was off work, i sold her about 11 years ago to a guy in Bristol, the RTTS pic on the motorway bridge must have been about 1998.
Dickie has a better memory than me, and he did most of the work on her - thanks Dickie and Darren who did the spray job.

Thanks for joining FDK forum, it's really nice to see your old pride and joy reappear and looking so COOOOOL!!! woo hoo

cheers for facebooking me toast. x

hi!!! it was the name freda and being a 69 that made me buy her she had been sat in a garage for five years when i first seen her i had to have her she looked so straight apart from runnig board hanging on floor!took half hour to get her going,her points had closed but she fired up drove nice apart from no brakes,£500 she was mine wink mike the guy in bristol cried his eyes out as we hooked her up to tow to coventry!so let him have one last spin in her and promised to drive her back down when she finished is there any meets in september down that way as might just come down show her off hug
