Check out Airhead Parts and KGPR on Discovery UK! We're on with Mike Brewer's "Wheeler Dealers", providing parts for their refresh of a 1969 Karmann Ghia Cabriolet. KGPR owner, Scott Dempster's own 1969 Cabrio is featured in the episode set to air in late October. As soon as the date and time is confirmed, I'll post it here. Also be on the lookout for a HotVWs article on the filming of the episode.

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
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.

Some essential advice before buying a used car according to Mike Brewer Wheeler Dealers
" If you're in a market for a used car you might want this old Ferrari 308. They aren't just folding. There are a few things that you should do if we set off to go and buy a car. The first of which is to use your phone, maybe your landline or your mobile phone, and phone with data service. Somebody like HPI or the AA, and they can give you all the information you would need to know whether the car is pretty involved in any accidents, whether the police have got an interest, but more importantly, if it's got any finance outstanding. Now, the only information you need to give him is a registration number of a car. And if you can, get the chassis number of the owner as well. That way, you can find out that the car you're buying is genuine rather than setting off to go [unk] in the first place. All it cost is the same price as a tanker fuel, and it's the best money you'll ever spend. Secondly, when you arrive to go and see the car, make sure that the car has not been previously rammed before you got there. What I mean by that is put your hand on the body, although dirty on this Ferrari, or look can be stupid because the engine on this car is down the back. So, when I do get to the car, I can put the key in ignition and see if there's any nasty fumes or black smoke coming out the Exhaust pipe. Now, the other thing to do is when you do go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork tallies to the place where you're actually standing. You'd be amazed of the amount of people who buy a car from the petrol station or from a pump carpark. What you should do, is when you go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork says you'll stand in the barn any town. Make sure you all stand in at the barn any town to come and see the car. That way, you know that you're buying a genuine car of a genuine owner. Now, when you do finally get there, and you've checked that it's not been previously rammed, you're standing in the right place, and you've done your days check, don't let your heart rule your head because you can't get carried away, especially with something as evocative as this lovely 308 GT4. You want to make sure that you've got yourself a price and stick to it. Don't go above it; otherwise, you could end up to shell your money out forever in a day to keep that thing on the road. If the car has got any outstanding finance, then make sure you speak to the finance company before you go to see the vehicle and find out what that settlement figure should be. That way, you can give the owner the balance of the vehicle that you've agreed to purchase it from, and send the settlement figure directly to the finance company. That way, you know it's been paid. Other than that, happy motoring."
