After 10 years away from the bug scene I decided last year to build a beach buggy with my son. This was completed last year and since then my heels have been kicking around looking for something to do other than DIY around the house so I went and bought this
Ceri a mate on Airdiction (my local VW club) came along with her
car transporter and away we went to Bristol to bring LYW to Wales (That’s a story on its own)
Anyway, the car was stored next door for two weeks and I bought it round my house last night and there was a BOING noise and the right hand side now slopes like this. (NO fat Driver jokes please)
No Idea whats happened, perhaps a shock absorber gone?
Its my intention to do a complete body off restoration over the next few months and its a good job I had this objective in mind as this is what I found today whist stripping out the inside.
Rear R/H heater channel fooked and welded to the floor
Front Heater channel fooked and welded too the floor
Front L/H Heater channel fooked and door A post badly repaired
And more bitumen than the M4 thats probrably hiding a few more surprises
I've just ordered new heater channels and floorpans from VW Heritage for starters and I'm off outside now to see whats hiding behind the wings.
I hope to keep this project going all the way to the end so starting this thread will keep me motivated, I'll keep you updated on my progess as I go along
