Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default Is it a custom dash?

Browsing for a beetle and trying to decide what to view and saw a 72 Beetle Cabrio. Dashboard looks unusual, any ideas what it is eg Karmann or something more custom?

Some late flat screens came with a moulded dash cover. That looks like a refinished version of one.

Id agree. A standard late bug padded dash cover, painted grey and customised a little with aftermarket gauges etc.

Personally, I think it looks a lashup, and I’d be worried what it was covering up.

Remember, one man’s “bespoke” is another man’s “dear god, what have you done?”.

Just because it’s cost somebody a fortune, doesn’t mean it’s worth investing in.

I reminds me of an early-nineties custom . . . if it's be done nice, that's kinda cool.
