Getting the convertible

I finally got the weather and my schedule to cooperate, and I went back to Alabama to pick up the second of my bugs: a 1966 Convertible. In rough condition. There are some parts here and there to be salvaged (like a motor, maybe, and a transaxle) but most of this vehicle is lost, I’m afraid. I’m going to use it as a practice dummy, and test some repair skills on this one before I work on the ’63.

PARTS – Heater Vent Covers

I bought some heater vent covers and retaining clips off of Getting bug parts in the mail is just like Christmas. A rustier, dirtier Christmas.

Heater vent covers and retaining clips. From a 1965 Beetle.

Not sure what color they should be. Black? Gray? Should they match the carpet? Pearl White, like the body? Don’t know yet.

Add $40.75 to the Bug Bill.
