It’s just how it goes around here… Anything to take care of our current customers!!!!!!! We are LUCKY to have such a bone yard of parts to use from!!!!! It took 20 years to collect all that shit!!!!!! 😎 My pleasure Juan!!!! My pleasure!! I love seeing more and more Volkswagens back on the road! 😎FranzKeymasterSeptember 18, 2019 at 4:12 pmPost count: 2735
Getting so close. I will call tomorrow about chrome. * edit-called on chrome; door handles in transit, beauty rings and hub caps soon
Is the rubber floor mat coming along?
Also, I have a list of items we need to complete. Some have been on back order with HOG for a couple weeks.
– interior garnish trim (door and quarter tops)
– window divider trim.
-rear defrost tube long length 30mm diameter
-rear seat strap and hold down plate.
-window winder knobs. Should this car have KG knob profile?
-brass contact ring for the horn…We are missing this part. Item number 16 below. Maybe this is the same part as a beetle?Juan 59 DDWTParticipantSeptember 18, 2019 at 10:05 pmPost count: 267
Great Job Franz, the dash looks Muy Bueno,… 👏👏👏👏🤤😎
About the list of the parts, I’ll send you an email tomorrow morning 👍PeteParticipantSeptember 19, 2019 at 7:23 amPost count: 750
Just FYI….John Copellos sells a really nice 58/59 horn rebuild kit if you need more than the brass ring. These pieces can be like hen’s teeth.Juan 59 DDWTParticipantSeptember 19, 2019 at 8:04 amPost count: 267
Thanks Pete for your help 👍
Franz, I’m ordering the horn rebuild kit, you should to receive soon.
Have a Great Day everyone.FranzKeymasterSeptember 19, 2019 at 8:22 amPost count: 2735
Thank you Juan. I think jj has the contact with house of ghia, so I’ll bug him to ask about our backordered parts.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 20, 2019 at 6:09 amPost count: 5394
I emailed House Of Ghia.. the 1/4 divider bars I think Juan already has on order… the rest of the list I asked about..
We need that mat kit!!!!PeteParticipantSeptember 20, 2019 at 6:17 amPost count: 750
That mat kit may be a while. They’re worth waiting for though as the quality of mine is top notch, they’re “correct” for the car, and are otherwise unobtainable. Juan may want to email Luis and see if he’s looking at weeks or months before his set is done.
Here’s the latest from Luis of Low Light Werks, posted on 9/18 on The Samba:
Dear Karmann Ghia lovers,
This post took longer that I wanted. I have been working on a plan to resume production as soon as possible, to fulfill all pending orders.
Finally, I see light at the end of the tunnel! A VW enthusiast has offered me his help to accomplish this. With his support, Low Light Werks will be able to work fulltime to continue fulfilling orders and taking new ones!
We are working on the paperwork and should be completed shortly. As soon as I can, I will post a projected delivery schedule.
I really appreciate your support and patience. Over a year ago I made the goal to reproduce the Low Light bulkhead mat, that wasn’t available for over 50 years! It was harder than I ever expected, fortunately, today this is a reality and owners that received their set really love them!
Thank you again for your support!
