i was impressed that anyone would attempt such a restoration--Gareth says that in the UK a person normally can expect to replace the first 3 inches of a Beetle when restoring! Robin Snook and Peter Ferguson were very fortunate to have found '67s that needed far less fabrication. Kudos to Gareth for this fabulous job. I can't wait to see the completed car! jay
