A step by step of how I installed the custom tweed headliner from Mike at House of Ghia (made by TMI) in my 1974 VW Karmann Ghia.

Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1971-karmann-ghia-convertible/ to see this great barn find - a 1971 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible sold by Sunset Classics.
This cute little Ghia has lived in a barn for the past 24 years! It is happy to be in my garage with other good VW company, but I already have a yellow Ghia Convertible so this one is up for sale. The long-time owner said he took the car out every year to keep things fresh. When I looked at the car he admitted it had been 3 years since it had been driven. The barn was on a dirt road way out in the Minnesota prairie. It was a fun find. Convertible Karmann Ghias are definitely one of my favorite barn finds for a classic car.

First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.

Much needed tuneup work for the Volkswagen
The last time the oil was changed was late 2005 according to the WalMart sticker. The car was taken off the road in late 2006 though.
Sorry about the lack of videos over the past six months or so, I have been filming regularly but my computer won't edit the videos so I have little motivation to mess around with it. We will try out this YouTube Video Editor and see how it goes...
