Once the workshop was closed officially this weekend, our attention turned to helping a good friend out finish his 65 beetle.

Various little bits needed finishing. Engine installing, fuel lines, Gearbox clearancing, some wiring and a few other odds and sods.

Here are a few pics. The car is now for sale too. Its a 1965 UK RHD sea blue beetle. 1600, slammed and narrowed with an asking price of £5000 on brand new BBT Steel Sprints. Or slightly less on smoothies. for more info, pics and contact details.
