I'll be putting a second front door on so its in line with the caves ... so we gain a portch way and somewhere to put the bloody shoes in stead of me tripping up over EVERYONES SHOES !! LOL

Claire will for sure be driving this one !! maybe more than me ... who knows !

so guys and girls i'm having a delemer

I find it a hassle to up load photos onto here now as my camera is a full frame camera so pics are MASSIVE

I dont really know what to do ..... to start a new thread somewhere ealse maybe on a beetle page or Thesamba as it maybe more helpfull to me with other peoples advise as we all know I've never worked on a beetle before.

OR !!!!!

get my old camera out and just take pics with that as they are smaller in size so this site excepts them

I use to love writting between the photos and explaining what I was upto .... but now it seams you have to upload pics in a bunch thus meaning no explanation between photos

whats your thoughts people ?? .... any advice of a forum that would be useful for me for this biuld

Beetles about 90 stripped and I have cut off a few bits and willl be welding then onto the body before I lift it off the floor pans as I need to make sure the mounts i'm welding in are in the correct place as a good friend Nigel adviced me to do this and it's 100% the right thing to do

O AND BY THE WAY THE CAVE IS FINISHED AND GERRY IS NOW TUCKED AWAY IN THE NEW CAVE

I use tapatalk..for all my posts.. EASY..
Pictures straight from phone onto thread.

Write some text .. Find pictures from phone and.. save.
Pictures will be at end of text.

Re-enter the post as Edit
Write more text at the end find pictures on phone and add. Save etc.
In that way the pictures relate to the words..and spaced through the text..

I was hoping you'd do a build thread on here. Maybe as a new thread though?

i see your going to be repairing the 'A' post bottoms(as per all rusty beetles) use hookeys repair panels as they are far better than the klonker ones plus he does a line up tool thats very usefull, if your'e thinking of running twin carbs then also use his access doors kits hi-pacs(also handy for easier spark plug removal). looking forward to this new thread, all the best.are you looking at going low or stcking with standard?
