Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 2 - Headliner
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. Thanks to Vince (Ghiaaddict) on thesamba for his step by step tutorial. I would not have even attempted this without his help and guidance. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=389729&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

Karmann Ghia Windshield Installation - Part 2
Wrapping up the install on the Karmann Ghia windshield. Use Silicon or
dish soad instead of Vasoline. Found out butyl rubber doesn't like
petroleum jelly. If you are squeamish about seeing glass get hit with a
hammer, turn the channel.

this great barn find - a 1971 VW Karmann Ghia Convertible sold by Sunset
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.
