Interior Prep Work

Since the seats were out, I decided to take care of rust issues and begin prep for new German square weave carpet and proper mats. In case you’re wondering, full carpet isn’t correct for the ’67 VW. Rubber mats are.

Here is a visual walk-through of some of the process:

I, as I'm sure others would, like to see an article on padding and carpeting the rear parcel shelf area to the correct configuration.

Don, There is one. I believe I emailed it to you. I'll try to update it in time.

Eric, I have an all original 67 Zenith Blue bug with 47k miles on it. Everything is as it was from the factory. It sat unnoticed in my wife's Grandfathers yard for nearly 20 years until he gave it to me in 2000. I put a new 1776 from Darryl's VW in it and im currently bringing the interior back. Could you tell what kind of bucket seats from what cars would fit? Im also looking for interior kits as the original is deteriorated. I want good quality kit but don't know who has the best. Im not concerned with originality as it will never be sold and im not concerned with its value. Several people have offered me big money for it but it holds more sentimental value than anything. Its my daily driver here in Hawaii now anand I would like it more comfortable. Any suggestions? Thanks Eric Child
