It's funny you say that......when I had it out on Jan 7 a lady walking by saw Duke on the step securing the neighbourhood and said " is he going to fit in that little car? " my reply was........that's the plan \:D/


Any thoughts on what gauge wire to run for these.....???

After seeing Jon's black rims & whitewalls from his '59..........I'm thinking of paying Josh a visit to have my stockers w/whitewalls un-mounted come spring and paint them black........

I like the attitude that the black rims bring.......

Currently Java........

So for shits & giggles I decided to remove the CD player this afternoon..........I'm thinking for the future maybe a nice radio block off plate which I found on TS......or factory am radio....????

Taking out the trunk carpet........this is going to get a good scrub down with high pressure soap at the local car wash to get all the crap off & maybe re-use it.......

Image

Next was to get at the CD player.....

Image

Bye....Bye.........

Image

The icing on the cake......a CUT dash....... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Image

........ :-k ....now how should I resolve this?.......any suggestions.....

But on a positive note a fancy green gas tank......and lots of stick rust proofing type junk..... #-o

Another CD player? :-s

how about a custom aluminum block off plate with radius corners that match your glove box, then polish it up all nice to match the other shiny stuff on your dash. I know someone who can get you some aluminum. :-$

Weld in a correct piece/paint and blend. Top it off with a radio block off like you said earlier..... :-k

ge get the one that i have...Retrosound...they make the faceplate that covers all that area and the trim matches the rest of the dash...the kit comes with everything to make it fit...even in the state of yours.

I think welding the dash should be the last option. You're going to have some other issue when your finished...bad blend, over spray, burn marks on the backside, wrong color, etc, etc.

The retrosound mentioned above sounds like a good option.

Hey Ron, I've got a brand new block off plate with the trim piece, was going to pull out my Saphire radio but it kinda looks "right" sitting in the dash so I don't think I'll use it..I think it might even be Java Green ( I know it isn't the Ceramic Green i needed)..I've got $50 into it if I remember correctly if you want it.

Looking good Ron!

Welding is doable, but I'd recommend concealment as the best solution for now. My 70' Beetle has a hacked radio cutout too, a little creativity can make it almost invisible.

Keep it up bro!
Why buy when you can build?
I've spent hours on parts that you can buy for pennies.
