I has doors!!!!



Absoloutely stunned! No rot on them anywhere. Workshop man says they're one of the best sets he's seen which is a bonus. Only problem is the doorcatch strap mountingamabobbit is hitting on the door so will remake that.

You can't really tell in this photo but it's got a partially smoothed dash in. I'll finish that off wen I can get to it. It should only take about 2 seconds to make and weld in.

he just needs a certain amount of money quick and he has the car handy. But yeah you'd think he'd sell it for more. It's dropped on bilsteins taxed and tested etc. So tempting, but insurance huuuuooooiiiiige!!! And rather just put the money into the beetle now then dick about
