      How do you get the damn side molding clips off without breaking them...ugh I push the pin in the middle of the clip and wiggled with pliers..Than they snap..

      Does the Thin chrome style side molding attach with the same clips?

      Anyone know if A nice pair of white pleather Front seats!!

      theres actually a trim piece tool specifically for those clips. It has a screwdriver handle but at the other end it splits in the middle and wraps around the clips to pull them out without breaking them. I think wal-mart even carries them for a few dollars

      Did you push the pins the whole way through and out of the clips? That's the key, and then you need to find the pins. NAPA carries the clips, andthe P/N is floating around the forum. Pin the whole way through and out, or else the "legs" won't close down enough to pull back through the hole.

      As for the thin chrome moldings, I'm not sure. Do you have a source? I ahven't even looked, but really like the thin chrome ones vs the black/chrome that came on mine.

      thanks

      Yah I actually bought the molding more than a year ago! I knew I wanted it and It was a deal at the time
      I also have a small duckbill for it, I still haven't decided it I wanted to put the wheel trim pieces back on, but the fenders look so cool with no trim on it

      I wish I was at home to look at cabby, but I blew a tired in my daily so im stuck till tomorrow.

      What would you guys do if your door panels were loose and the fabric was starting to peel away from the edges?

      Im going to try super 77 and clothes pins, is there anything eles i could do?

      has anyone tryed to recover orginal door panels? I've been trying vortex search searched interiors..dead end


      I see alot of made door panels which are just flat piece of cardboard but thats not what Im looking for. I want OEM style but to look like they are brand new. is that too much to ask for

      Today was super cold since it snowed 2inches yesterday. so I decided to make my own shift boot..I ended up getting into it and I ended up making 5 boots



      any plans on making any for sale ???

      Well I have tons of cabriolet mirroros but I need these

      I see lots of these mirrors on ebay, but they are Japanese made. the real orginal equip on early rabbits cost no more than $80 a pair. I really wanted a chrome one, but just imagine the price tag. Sometimes vortex member hook each other up! wink wink

      I'm pretty much right now just waiting to see my income tax return so I can buy somethings

      I'd like to update everyone

      It's been awhile since I've posted here last and not to much has changed. Last weekend my buddy mike came up for one day and helped me out. Previously to this I pulled the carpet, knee bar and abunch of other things out of the 92. I went to town on the 92, I pulled the perfect Black knee bar and replaced it with the white knee bar. Long stroy short Interior is intac for the Time being I'm going to have to pull the dash when I put the motor in.

      Thing I purched: racelands, brand new axels, White rabbit mud flaps and a rebuild kit with some other thing for the motor rebuild.

      I currently Don't have a camera, Which is not fun. Most people are more so attract to pictures Than words.

      You shouldn't have to pull the dash to pull or install the engine.

      Your engine may not be in, but you're ahead of me in a lot of other areas, Alicia! Keep it up, and if you want pics to post, give me a shout and I'll bring my camera over. And a few of these

      Hi everyone!
      Some progress is being made,which is exciting! Like I said I no longer have a digital camera nor great Internet hook up aka dial up. I am going to try my best to show you small tidbits here and there with cell phone pictures.

      On April 3rd, Took the roll bar cover off and the pillar seal so that I could re-vinyl the black vinyl above the door cards. as long as put newer windows and seals. Pretty much I had to take everything off to do it proper.

      All the parts on the 92 look 10x cleaner, and the car is starting to look less and less like a car everyday

      I will try and get more pictures but don't hold your breath. I Have to deal with the current resources I have and don't have.

      Yes, I will need a hand with the top but It's not going to be for a bit. I would like to spend the extra $200 for a canvas top. I saw some nice canvas tops at the yard but none were the right color.

      It Began with A motor..

      And a few cinder blocks!

      But..the bad news is The 020 original tranny completely separated clean from the tranny mount bracket.. The good news is we didn't have to loosen the tranny mount for removal.

      You should've gotten your butt up and vended at Volkfest! I sold $170 worth of parts and only bought $90! I'll be getting $40 of that back, though, the spacers didn't fit my MKIII right.
