Finally got around to doing some more work on my bug.
Replacement second hand bonnet, wirebrushed and with a coat of filler, then sanded down and primed.

After not being able to do anything on my bug for weeks due to the weather i finally decided to build a carport so i can work outside even if its raining. Its high enough to get my bay under too.

Next job, heater channels and door pillar bottoms.

My missus is sick of the sight of it as its been sitting outside the kitchen window for the past 3 years now.

Gotta get a crack on with it now and get some use out of it.

Needs a new door pillar bottom to go with the channel.

The inner front arch replacing again. I think it was chewed off when it was replaced last time.

Chassis needs napoleon hat section and front of floorpan repairing too.

I have the horrible feeling that if i remove the two tacked on plates off the inner arch i'll find a huge rusty hole underneath.
It seems to have had a rear suspension panel welded in and i'd put money on it that the rot wasn't cut out beforehand.

Looks OK and solid from under the wing though.
