      I'm glad to see this one getting close. I've been following this for a while, thought it was destined to languish.

      Got some hours in the garage today, even if I was not supposed to work with the car today.

      The car has marked it`s territory outside my garage.
      PS! It`s not oil from my bug, it`s from my PT Cruiser


      The front is now complete. Got the hood back on, and adjusted it. I also finished up the drivers door.



      There is also a køstom detail in this picture. Where`s the turn signal lights??
      Well, they are combined with fog lights. I have made a relay chain which makes the fog light work as a turn signal even if the lights are used or not. Needed some relays to make this work, but works like a charm. Also my snowflakes are working as turn signals.

      Of course the lights are modifed to fit the bumper

      Watching for sure. My wife has a 62 and really really want her to bag it. It's in the body shop now so all I can say is I am chipping away at it. Love the work dude.

      Don't say that, you'll give internet rumors a bad name.

      Anyway, his YouTube account ( http://www.youtube.com/user/DrLaban showed activity Oct 2011.
      (Maybe he has better things to do......who knows? DrLaban doesn't owe us anything!) (Still a nice (soft!) looking Bug, tho.

      Agreed, didn't want to start anything by that. He indeed does not owe anything. Its weird though to never see any pics of the bug on the net. I'd assume people would have snapped a few here and there by now....

      Hi, I'm also converting to short axels and I mount 12V brakes (4x130)
      What kind of housing covers did you mount?
      With what bearings?

      Perhaps he hasn't finished the car yet? I'd like to see progress too, hopefully he comes back sometime soon.

      This can be reopened when the OP or the possibly new owner of the car appears. Otherwise no need to drag up a way old thread.
