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.
Part 3 can be found here:

action and quite a lot of ale - but they managed to do it in one day.
VW bug Frame recap So far #162
Hurray, the VW bug's lower frame is complete as far as I can get it for
now. I will still need to remove the frame and flip it around a bit to get
to all the welds. Next up, compression of the struts to determine ride
height and strut top location. So far so good.
