1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's
chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past,
I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the
car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone
will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones
you'll see in the BugMe videos.

1953 Oval Window being cut up - 2.
Our 1953 3 fold rag top was found in a horrendous state, having been
exposed to the elements for years. The floorpan consists mostly of
fibreglass patches, the heater channels are non existent, the wings were
hacked as was the rear H valance. It was decided that we would cut the roof
off at the waistline, instead of just the sunroof clip, to transplant onto
a another early roof damaged oval. Some other parts were saved: doors, W
decklid, dashboard, switches etc. Watch as we take the roof off over the
period of an hour.
