Quick recap for any who haven't seen the first part...
I first bought my bug, a 69 1300, in 85, it looked like this
After a resto in the late eighties and a quick tart up in 04 it looked like this
The car was as rotten as a pear so work was needed again by late last year so.....
Off came the rear quarters
to be replace with genuine quarters, boot floor and crossmember panels
then after much chopping out of this sort of stuff
came a pair of heater channels
Then off came the rotten front end and front bulkhead
and on went new metal
A pair of new floor pans
and that brings me up to date on the structural work
