This is how you solve the age old problem of decklid springs hitting the aircleaners on your dual Kadron carborators in your Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Buy a couple K&N E-3220 filters. They are about $30 each, and yes that is expensive, but they are the last two airclearners you will ever have to buy for your ghia. I am using the EMPI intake manifolds, so this is the WORST CASE SCENERIO and it works.
The stock Kadron aircleaners are 3-1/2" tall. The K&N filters are 2" tall.

VW Karmann Ghia - FIRST DRIVE!!!!
OH YEAH!!! After 18 years of cutting, grinding, welding, filling, sanding,
sanding, sanding, priming, painting, buffing, fixing, wiring, trimming,
sweating, cussing, smiling, crying, talking, screaming, farting and
everything else it takes to dismantle and restore a car, the Karmann Ghia
moved again for the first under it's own power. The feeling? AWESOME!!!
Episode 70 Part 2 Seamless floor pan installation, 1965--70 Mustang, Autorestomod
We finish the installation of the National Parts Depot Mustang floor pan in our weekend
project 1968 Mustang
hardtop! In this episode we only replace the sections needed. Gary Jackson
shows how to cut, weld, and grind a pan for a seamless repair that will
give a factory look without using the full pan. This method will also be
easier due to less welding and grinding.

Classic VW Engine Rebuild, By Last Chance Auto Restore.com
We began with a dual port 1600 cc engine from a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
The engine ran with a miss and was smoking a bit . After performing a
compression test,(both wet and dry) , we determined the crankshaft and
bearings were fine.
We replaced the pistons, pots & rings. We had the valves redone and made
several upgrades along the way.....
TMI Carpet Kit Arrives for the VW Karmann Ghia
This is TMI's premium loop kit with a cloth binding. It's cut for a
passenger side footrest. My opinion is that it's a B+/A- kit. We will see
how well it fits. In order to get an A+ it would need near perfect fit,
holes for heat vents, holes for hold down knobs and have the binding cut a
bit nicer on the ends.
