Hello,
just find my first ribbed oval, standard & ragtop, after many years of research...
Some work to do, some welding... And some parts needed!
I'm after a right door... a rear valence, rear wings...

Here is a Topic's copy.... (Radikalbugz)
Yop les oufs,
bon, quelques photos........ les deux 55a sont ensemble, un mois les séparent, la RHD est de juin 55, la STD est de juillet.... c'est dingue...

ça y est, entrée dans l'allée... (jolie plaque sur le plateau!!!)

les sangles du plateau seront bientôt en vente, j'en attends de nouvelles.

ça croustille à l'avant:

La peinture kaki se dépose bien, ils n'ont pas dépoli avant de peindre, en grattant ça vient assez bien.... (ouf)

bon réservoir, l'avant est en ordre, capot pas croqué, élec d'origine, pas de mauvaise surprise.

La poutre correspond aux papiers

Ici le trou que je préfère sur la caisse:

3 plis, pour ceux qui ne savent toujours pas ce que c'est:

La sellerie est plutôt bien... panneaux de portes également...

Un Warning???

Ici rien de réponds plus.... le sélecteur est à l'ouest, mais bien bien bien à l'ouest, comme si il n'y avait plus de boite de vitesse...
UserPostedImage

beau petit cul... hormis les feux....

Elle a même une gueule!!!

Donc rien de grave, le côté passager est plus atteint, la porte est naze dans le bas, réparée avec une tôle d'alu rivetée... (C qui qui a une porte nervurée en stock, côté droit???)

Vais voir avec Dom si une petit stage est possible??? Dom, tu nous lis ce soir??? La demoiselle a besoin d'un petit traitement... En soins intensif, pas palliatif....

Sinon que dire??? à part:
ça fait plaisir............. 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎

Milles mercis à Benj pour la route, c'était l'occasion de faire connaissance avec la police.... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

La suite bientôt.
Greg.

Funny you should say that Andy.
Look at the car in the link i posted the other day.
I'm embarassed to say i've not notice this in the past.
Is this a standard thing,were all the panels used, cut for a reservoir, and then not used?

My '58 Std had the mounting holes for a brake fluid reservior, they all used the same panel as the deluxe.

What an interesting and unusual car.

I've often wondered why the base model Beetles were usually grey. Was grey paint cheaper than using a colour finish to save costs, or was it just by keeping the colour options down that saved costs:?:
1956 VW Beetle, 1962 Morris Minor, 1968 VW Beetle (Old Blue), 1972 Morris Mini, 2005 MGTF

Blue, blue, Electric Blue, that's the colour of Old Blue!
