      Here is a quick update. Got the bulkhead in and rebar all done. The RHD did not have a tilt so I used my LHD tilt steering.

      what color carpet are you going to put back in. I notice you have the beige door cards, so you had the light colored carpet in there did you?

      I actually only have the front 1/2 of the carpet. Yes it is black but I am having a HARD A$$ED time trying to find black leather rear seats and black cards for the back!! Did the Cabby come with black leathers at all??

      A little work done today. The car came to me with a 1/2 completed side molding delete job and I didn't want to finish it so I took it off.

      The door and the rear 1/4 panel are what was done.


      Filler panel taken off


      Ground some of the spot welds down


      Quick coat of self etching primer so the rust will stay away till I get the bodywork done by someone more capable than me..lol..


      Took the door off since I can replace it easier than fixing it!


      Also did the RHD cabin filter while it was nice out today..


      Cabin filter mount in place (minus the filter)

      Have you made any progress yet?

      Did you get RHD door cards as well with the swap. I know you can switch the window up/down to the other side. But what are you going to do with the electric mirror adjustment?

      you don't need the entire door card, just the removable switch panel.

      Damn... I'd love to tackle something like this eventually, although I think I'd do a RHD TDI Cabrio

      ^^^ I'd love to make my 3.5 Cabby RHD. The thought of driving on the right side with the top down sounds awesome. But I would only do it if I can source a RHD 3.5 Cabrio conversion and it won't be an easy task
