lol, I only popped them on loose for the photo as I was waiting for the rubber channel to go in the window channel but I was wondering where they should point as I did it . Thanks for the info though, thats the kind of thing that'd bother me too

That's superb!

I plan to get a '66, and when I do I'll want to do it like yours!

(If you don't mind!)

Tracked down this red/white german enamel badge that I'm thinking of putting on the bonnet. Its really nice quality. Here it is on my spare bonnet as a mock-up. What do ya reckon?

Its a perfect size and the mounting holes will be behind the VW emblem if I decide to revert back to stock. Was thinking of using some white pop rivets.
