    Good luck with it ewo.. vw's are great and cheap to work on. Theres a good Site called "thesamba" lots of teck. info and hard to find parts. Theres lots of new parts also. find a Air cooled VW club and join. you wont regret it. https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=hts&oq=&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADFA_enUS440US440&q=Indiana vw clubs

    I have been doing a big transforming with mine this past year. [​IMG]

    Cheers
