    Insulation glued in. Upon closer inspection the thick side side is rubber and sticks very nicely with contact cement.9272F4E1-A763-4109-AB03-2E122970F021CE232713-0794-40DF-8E00-F5B5560DEB821C4BB5D5-F441-4398-BA9B-1AF2E7FD699A
    After Pete mentioned people having problems with the mats sticking I decided to run 36 grit sand paper over it. 👍

    Looking good, Franz.  Those floor mats have been unobtanium.  The guy making them has indicated that once he runs out of materials he’s likely done attempting to produce them.  Unless something changes Juan’s car will be one of only a hundred (if that many; likely less) that’ll have this correct detail in a restoration.

    Fully installed mats. Very nice.

    The black mats clipped into the stock lugs perfectly. They are not glued down so they look a little wavy from packaging, I expect that to go away.

    Installed the new rear seat trim, door top, trim, trunk liner, jack, and spare tire.

    Juan, would you like the hubcap VW emblems painted black?

    Good Job Franz, details & details 👍👏👏👏

    About the hubcap, don’t paint them, thanks for ask, but I prefer full chrome without VW emblems black. 😎

    I’ve been trying to get the KG door from greyhound freight…But they have weird hours, and not even open when they say they should be. I think Greyhound is about to go out of bussiness….serious… It looks like they’ve already started moving assets out of the building. No chairs or anything.

    *BEWARE* Anyone planning to use greyhound freight. I would find a different way….. Fastenal has a similar service.

    The story I got last night is that they had the door, but accidentally sent it to Denver. Its supposed to be on its way back to Grand Junction.

     

    I spent yesterday working on the rear seat area. Glued in blue vinyl and mounted seat with correct scews.

    After we get the glass from Greyhound, the last piece we are missing is the passenger door pull. I know Juan was trying to find the correct strap and chrome trim. We also have this covered wood version (earlier kg) that I could install.

    Greyhound called last night at 9pm. The open at noon today. I will get the door and install the glass later today.

    Carpet tacks like original.

    Door looks good. Glass looks good one minor scratch and one tiny pit. Correct logo.
