Thanks Tigger :D

Most of my effort did go into the interior (it was a real state) so I'm glad you like it! The outside should look better when all the panels go back on too.

Got to be honest..... Don't know the full spec of the engine as it worked when I got it and i work on the premise "if it ain't broke don't fix it". The lad I got it from reckoned it was very tuned and "had everything done to it" and been dyno tested at 120bhp, I think that's a bit hopeful myself but who knows. I can tell you that it is a '67 1600, does have an oil filter and cooler, alloy valve covers and the carbs are EMPI's equivalent to Weber IDF 40's. This is the first VW powered thing I've dealt with so to that end am a bit clueless :blink:

You must be very happy with the result now you are nearly finished and as tigger has already commented, the interior looks brilliant (must have taken an age!)

I am still rebuilding mine but hope to be finished for spring just not sure which year!!

If you mean the one on the side in photo 3 then I think it's a release for the removable steering wheel. I think MrMunster mentioned using one last time I saw him.

I'm very pleased to announce.......I have my bonnet :D

Some of you may remember that about three years ago I had a small fire at my flat in which I lost my bonnet.

If you don't this was my flat (the corner closest) during said fire....

And the morning after.....

Inside my flat.....

Well it took a while but with the help of gtmdriver, I have replaced my lost bonnet B)
In short gtmdriver was to going to make a new bonnet for his Fug and be able to make more, after a few conversations we struck a deal and a couple of weeks ago I got the message that bonnet had been made.

So on Thursday morning, I drove the 250 miles up north to collect my bonnet, then drove home again with this in the back.....

Naturally I had to pop it on car

And the 'lil one had to have a go

All I need to do now is trim, fit and paint/wrap it!!

All in all, I'm very happy to once again have a bonnet. BIG thanks to gtmdriver for making it for me and I now hope to get it to next years kit car show!

It's an easy shape to wrap, don't know what part of the country you're in, but I can point you in the right direction to buy the wrap, fit it, or just get it done as a whole job. It's my old trade as it were, but I still have the stuff for all vinyls, except large format printing, which is what you'd need.

I remember the mention of a fire, but it's difficult to visualise something like that, just luck no one was in it, or at least I assume there wasn't.

Thanks 100bob, I'll bear your expertise in mind When I get to that stage :) and your assumption was right about the fire, amazingly nobody got hurt!

Thanks chris y. And yep, that bonnet is a cracker B)

hey fella, top job......cripes it was only a while ago you said you and the missus were expecting a kiddy, now look at her, all grown up!!!.....my kids love my fug, like a car and a climbing frame all in one, I'm reluctant to paint it all nice because they keep climbing all over it......not to mention Josephs hacksaw practice on one of the tubes, the little 5hite :angry: :angry: :angry: ........anyway, I didnt put my fug on the road this year as I wanted to get Joesphs kart sorted and tittivate the fug interior and get the rear wing looking proper, which is all now done......therefore we should plan to go out for an Essex 2012 spring/summer blat, keep me posted on progress.
