PostSubject: What did you do with/ to your VW today?   Fri Dec 21, 2012 4:10 pm

This is a very popular thread in the forums at the Samba, so I figured I'd start one here to see how it goes.

Today I put in some material type floor mats. Just bought the cheap kind from Walmart and cut to fit. I want to see if it helps on keeping the bus warmer in the front. I still need to buy some rubber mats for where my feet sit though. Didn't think of that till after I installed the material ones.





What did you do?

Not to my own car, but I replaced the throttle cable and did a tune-up on a 71 Super Beetle.

I made mine inoperable. LOL I took the seats out and dropped them off to be reupholstered! Very Happy That is my Xmas gift from my hubby this year.

Here is how he gave it to me. He put this box in a regular box and wrapped it. This box is supposed to be a seat. LOL



He put a pull tab at the hole in the box for me to pull on. This is what was in it.



It is enough money to get my seats done! I can't wait to get them back. I have the guy adding a special touch and can't wait to see how it comes out. Very Happy Pics to follow once I get them back! May be a week or so though. They are booked till Feb at their shop so he took them home to do them. Hopefully they will be ready by next week. I miss driving my bus. LOL May have to go rob Dewey's seats for now. LOL

Thanks Dewey, if the withdrawals get to bad I will take you up on that! LOL although I think I'm going to pull it in the garage and do the slider seal. So that should kill some of the time with no seats! LOL

Saturday I put the slider door seal in and put new pedal pads on. Sunday I robbed a jalousie window knob from Dewey's old windows, to replace the one we broke when removing the back of the slider the day before! LOL the. I drove it with no seat back to it's parking spot next door. Smile
