    Just before Red9 was sold they designed a rear end a bit like the front, the current site does not show it for the Beetle but I think it is a version of this used on the Type 2

    Not the best photos but you can just about see

    I did.

    It is a Summit Raptor wireless kit. You can get them for road or race spec. Looks the part and very handy for security purposes and getting in and out of the car when the wheel is not in the way …

    Thanks Dirk - yes, I can just about see the wishbones disappearing under the sides of the engine bay. The compression struts confused me at first, I thought they were part of the suspension too, but now I can see that they are supporting the gearbox.

    All very impressive
