I took it to a shop that Scott from VW Paradise recommended. They just called me this morning with an $11,000 estimate.. haven’t heard back from insurance yet.
In the meantime, I finessed an Audi rental car out of the deal… because a 1963 VW Bug is basically the same thing right?GlennmossModeratorMarch 11, 2021 at 4:45 pmPost count: 258
Just got a call back from the insurance adjuster sounds like they’re going to start with repairs at the quoted estimate!
How would you guys recommend fixing this front quarter panel damage? Is it possible to find a new panel or just body work it out?RustabusParticipantMarch 11, 2021 at 4:55 pmPost count: 2294
Wow! You got Lucky!!!! Insurance paid off!!! Don’t think you should replace the clip, don’t tell the shop what to do but I think a Port o Power, big rubber sledge hammer, and a measuring tape is the way to start this repair!!!!😀👍😀👍😀😀👍😀👍GlennmossModeratorMarch 11, 2021 at 6:05 pmPost count: 258
Thanks Rusty! The shop had asked me haha. I think with all it’s bullshit laws California got one thing right with their car insurance liability. Probably because everyone is obsessed with their cars out herealykatParticipantMarch 12, 2021 at 8:24 amPost count: 634
Good deal. As a manager at an auto body shop I spent more time trying to get decent response from Insurance Adjusters than any other jobs in the office. Progressive and GEICO were the absolute worst to work with.GlennmossModeratorMay 10, 2021 at 7:29 pmPost count: 258
Got the bug back and she’s looking great!! They even resprayed the gas tank for me. Now I want to get a new right headlight bucket to match the nice left one.
Going to get back on the refresh on this. Next on the list was to repaint the roof rack.. do you know what color they would be originally?FranzModeratorMay 10, 2021 at 8:13 pmPost count: 4191

So recently, the bug has been misfiring in a weird way and has been ‘hiccupping’ violently. It will run fine then randomly start to hiccup and backfire before returning to normal. This happens at any speed or throttle input. I tried doing the valves, checking the points, and Will helped me with timing but it still has this issue. Any suggestions on what to do? My best guess would be the points as there was a small bit of buildup on there that I couldn’t sand off but not suretlambertParticipantJune 3, 2021 at 8:36 pmPost count: 418
Check for water in the gas tank. This sounds like something I encountered on another type vehicle
