Looking great .
Did you do the headlining yet ?
If so please post pics as I need to pick ideas from it , as I have no idea how a base headlining fits in
Base models that didn't cover the B or C pillar posts are held in just as the early Bugs. You still have metal rods used as bows to support the headliner in 3 or 4 places but the edges have strips of fibreboard swen and glued to the headliner edges. This then pops over the metal lip of the roofs inner support channels.

ta. It's getting there slowly.
They didnt do them for 03's so getting a trimmer mate to do that, although it's only the very front that's different.
As above for the description though

A few small bits of progress.

Blue led strip in the speedo to match the blue digital gauges for the dash. £8 for 4 strips off ebay and one is pretty much the perfect size for a bug speedo.

No plate on which reminds me I need to roll it out and wash off all the dust.

Been stuck in the back of the garage under a load of dust whilst other things have got in the way. Rolled it out yesterday and gave it a good clean and did a few bits.

Smoothed bumpers on, door handles, running boards.

Next on the list - exhaust and pop the distributor drive shaft in
