    I have been watching those LED lights for a while now, there seems to be quite a lot of variation in performance vs. price, but your ones appear to be the same as the OEM ones used on some models of...

    My mistake - seems like all Super Beetles came with a steering box from the factory. And try as I might I cannot find any reference to the inboard front suspension I saw pictures of all those years...

    It is possible to cut down the front struts an graft a balljoint onto the top, to mate with a top wishbone. Obviously you have lost the spring so the top wishbone operates a short coilover. Adjusting...

    Eezi bleed does it for me too, although you need to make sure the tyre pressure is below 20 psi in order to avoid the reservoir cap blowing off (ask me how I know). Spent ages cleaning brake fluid...

    I'm sure it will fit, but less certain that the geometry will work for the Nova windscreen, which is quite an extreme shape. Hence the length of my synch arm extension at the wiper end of the...

    I agree - even running the Mini-pack until the by-pass valve operates (allegedly at 210 Bar) the canopy still creaks and squeaks, particularly over rough roads. The original manual canopy...

    Incidentally, I'm loving the rear grille treatment which will do wonders for engine cooling, but I was wondering if the Fiat 850 lights would look better upside down? That way the curvature of the...

    Hi Alistair - I did check the carpet on the front bulkhead, also on the floor in the footwell and it is not wet, so I think the canopy seal is holding up OK. Also, there is a big gap between the...

    That is a shame - I thought I had convinced Mark to hang on to the car. Still, I guess priorities change :(
