Bought this car to fix for my daughter but her family is too big for it now. I put a new engine in it, rebuilt the transmission, put in a new clutch. 2 new wheels and tires, new hoods and fenders, new paint job. New steering wheel, dashboard, glove compartment cover. New carpet and coverings, new mirrors, new running boards and light covers. The VW mechanic suggested I take the fuel injection out, so I did. He never liked that feature on the Beetle. Runs and looks great. Stored in my garage.
