Don't get too excited it's very early days! Long slog ahead.

It's a Karmann Beetle Cabriolet anyway ('69 flat screen), not a Ghia.

I'll make a bit more progress on it then perhaps tag some updates on the end of my bus thread.

Oh, and I also recently acquired an '83 Mexibug for £50. I'll update my thread with that tale too (if I win this poll) :wink: :lol:

Bus is in temporary winter storage so I could get the Cabrio in the garage and make a start. Still need to find a more long term home for it if u have any suggestions?

that mexibug looks a bit of a bargain for £50!

What wheels are those on it.

Do you do all the bodywork yourself?

Well the car was actually £300 but I sold the alloys within one day on Vzi for £250 :cheers:

They are fairly rare so I gather(?) - Ronal Kleebatt 15x5.5

Yes. I'll be doing everything except maybe the new convertible hood.

Well done Nige, January's VOTM winner.

Can you suggest a theme for February?

Cheers everyone!

Rich, how about photos of buses with their awnings/camping setup for February (to get us thinking about Spring)?
