Karmann Ghia Windshield Installation - Part 2
Wrapping up the install on the Karmann Ghia windshield. Use Silicon or
dish soad instead of Vasoline. Found out butyl rubber doesn't like

hammer, turn the channel.

My four classic Karmann Ghias: '73 Ghia Vert for Sale
My four classic Karmann Ghias, as you might guess the Karmann Ghia and
especially the Ghia Convertible is my favorite car. Here we have a 1962
Ghia Convertible (restoration in progress), a very original 1960 Ghia

This beautiful orange '73 Ghia Convertible has been with the same owner for
the past 24 years. The owner only put 3000 miles on it during the entire

remarkable condition for its age.
The windshield still has the original VW logo and the condition of the
original interior leads me to believe that is probably the original mileage
at just over 61k.

Anti Rattle pt.2
Here's a few in a row, and a shot of a terrible tool. It's a straightened
out hubcap puller & it's just a hair too soft. Starts to get pretty weak
by the end.
