Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 3 - Padding Kit
Installing the padding kit for the VW Karmann Ghia Convertible. This involves a lot of detail work to get all the pieces to fit into place and make a smooth surface for the outer shell to stretch over.





Airkewld 1969-79 Beetle/Ghia Complete Air ride kit
Applications These kits fit the 1949-65 US Spec Beetle/Ghia, Replicas and Dune Buggies with a link pin front end. You need to have 15" and larger wheels for our disc brakes to work. If you have stock drum spindles or drop drum spindles, this kit will fit. Do these brakes add track width? This kit does NOT add track width. Kits Contains BAD Series rotors in a factory Volkswagen 5x205mm bolt pattern with cross drilled rotors, Wilwood 1 Piston calipers, pads, seals, hardware, caliper brackets and master cylinder. Factory dust caps bolt right on. Recommendations We recommend the installation kit with every disc brake kit we offer. This kit comes with bearings, stainless steel flexible brake hoses, brake reservoir, new brake light switches and a bottle of brake fluid. Why BAD Series Brakes? Are you tired of adjusting your brakes just to have a subpar brake feel? Do you have to pump your pedal 100 yards before a stop light? Are you trying to fit custom wheels on your ride? Are you tired of buying cheap imported parts? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the BAD Series Disc brake kit is what you need! My biggest recommendation is for you to only spend your money once. In doing that, make sure you get all the parts needed to do the install right the first time. Installation/Tech Articles What is the best braking system for my VW? Wheel Options for the air cooled VW Type 1 Beetle Front Disc Brake Install Should I install them or have a licensed mechanic install them? If funds allow, have a trained technician install them. Better to have them make sure everything is right and you will not be second guessing yourself. If you are educated and have the correct tools, a back yard mechanic can install them but we do recommend you have a professional take a look after you are done. Pros versus Cons Warranty, weight, options, made in the USA and the ability to use any spindle, dropped or stock height. A lifetime warranty on our rotors as well. Some of our competitor's disc brake kits can be in excess of 76lbs per axle. Our heaviest kit weighs in at 48lbs. Our rotors, Wilwood calipers, brackets, etc. are made in the USA. No one else can say that. [youtube]XNWZbCGv7Wk[/youtube] The biggest differences are the rotors. The rotors are made of three parts; hub, the bolt pattern and the rotor. All these parts are made in the USA with high end CNC machines. These rotors allow you to use year specific bearing seals and dust caps. The BAD Series rotors have a lifetime warranty as well. If you wear one out, we will send you a new one free, just pay shipping. These hubs allow the interchanging of bolt patterns. What does this mean? If you order them with a Chevrolet 5x4.75 bolt pattern and a few months later you want to install Porsche wheels, you can! All it takes is removing the bolt patterns from the rotors and installing the new ones. Each pattern is sold separately. The last difference is the ability to add a performance caliper to your car.
