    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,…. 👍👍

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

    Thanks Franz, the jack is going to look really Muy Bueno in the spare tire area, once you have it assembled, please share a pic. 👍😎

    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.

      That is going to suck balls to change if that was the plan… I was hoping for some replacement knobs or something??  The originals look dipped on the lever.. as in non replaceable or removable..

    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 🤞
