No luck getting in contact with Gabe.
Just FYI….back in July there was a Go Fund Me page set up for him…apparently he had a pretty bad stroke. He might still be recovering from that.
Wow,… realy bad new,.. Gabriel is a good person,.. I hope, he can recover of it very soon,…. 👍👍John JonesKeymasterOctober 24, 2019 at 7:49 amPost count: 5841
Bummer to hear Gabe has been sick….. we are all getting older… 😎 The birthdays are catching up with us!!!!
So we need a piece of glass, a mat kit, 2 vertical divider bars and a new chrome piece to snap on the rear parcel tray under the window???John JonesKeymasterNovember 13, 2019 at 7:04 amPost count: 5841

Good stuff Franz. I’m about to do the same. Can you show all parts like an exploded view? Which parts will get painted?

Hi Franz, Did you receive the floor mat set and the part I sent? 👍👍😎Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJanuary 9, 2020 at 9:10 pmPost count: 276
Thx Franz, I sent the heat mechanism with knobs, did you receive it too? 👍🍻FranzKeymasterJanuary 10, 2020 at 4:00 pmPost count: 2971
Yes that part arrived too. It looks very fragile.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 10, 2020 at 11:38 pmPost count: 5841
lordy lordy.. this ghia may get to go home soon!!!!!!!!!! Seems like storage status for awhile.PeteParticipantJanuary 11, 2020 at 6:02 amPost count: 790
The wait for the floor mat set will be worth it. The guy making them has gone above and beyond with the investment of his time and money to reproduce them. He’s announced that once he runs through this last batch of material he’ll no longer be able to make them, so future Ghia resto’s will be back to carpet kits.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 11, 2020 at 3:56 pmPost count: 5841Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJanuary 11, 2020 at 9:50 pmPost count: 276
John / Franz, I know it is impossible to remove the knobs, my idea is to change all the heat mechanism or disassemble the mechanism and use the two levers with knobs and install them in the actual mechanism that the Karmann Ghia already has installed,.. is it possible? 🤔
Yes John, I hope to bring it to home soon 🤞
