With the sheet metal for the front wheel wells, does he just cover the old metal or did he go back and cut out the old metal and butt weld the new in?

Hi, I am restoring a VW beetle 1978 and I have the same problem in the rear part of the car. my question is where did find that part, is this a Brazilian peace like the heather or have you bought it in the USA ? just because I could not find in Brazil. Thank you much for your help. João Portscheller

quick question, on average, how much would you say it costs to repair the heater channels?

This seems like a pretty horrible job to do overall. Worth it maybe for such an early shell but I don't think i'd personally bother if I didn't have to! Props for getting it done though.

Cause that guy is the MAN, and whatever he wants to use, he uses. He is an expert on welding, I am not. He works for a cool company called IRONAGE. They do elegant railings and fencing. Whatever he feels that day… :o)

Where can I buy port-wall inserts for my tires? I wanted to buy white tires but they're too expensive. Where do you get yours from? I heard some inserts damage your wheels. Is that true?

I am not sure, I think it should be the same as a 68 or later bug
