    There we go
    The bug isn't as good paintwise as it looks in the photos as the paint has crazed and split whilst it was in the garage during it's 10 yr hibernation but i think it just adds character (i hate fully restored trailer queens )
    The brake wheel cylinders and flexi hoses were replaced for the mot as were the tyres etc
    Wheels are as new and so are the dropped spindles on the front beam and at least two of the tyres
    This beetle has patina and is fairly original except for the doors which are 64/67 and as such have larger windows
