Default Cornish 1965 beetle

after a few shitty veedubs and buckets of chash thrown away I sowre I would never get another beetle.... So the weekend before Christmas ( when money was super tight) I went and bought this>





bit rough round the gills,

So seeing its well into the new yr, I thought I better star getting stuck in.







As Im keen just to get it on the rd and on a tight budget.just doing the basics. maybe get a few more bits done to it after the summer.





Thanks for the floor pan, dont know if you'll catch this thead, Chris a guy in the peak district,with 66bug and a TVR, never did ask if you were on here. But thanks anyways.
