  1. Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    I've seen videos of people who've taken their Beetle, sawed the top off, and called it "a convertible," but the word convertible implies that the car can convert itself from a car with a top, to a car with no top, and vice versa. In my opinion, a car without a top isn't a true convertible, so I...

    How similar are the super beetle's parts to the classic beetle's parts? What I want to do is replace the fenders, front and back clip/apron, the decklid, and hood of my 79 super beetle with their 66-and-down counterparts. nevermind the difficulty of such an outlandish idea, I just want to know...

    I'm contemplating doing a conversion from drum to disk brakes on my 74 bug. I am informed that karmin gia had disk brakes at that time. Any help on the years that are compatable would be appreciated.
  6. Golf MK2 / 1983-1992
    Been contemplating an engine conversion for my 85 Golf Diesel. After repeatedly seeing the black soot spewing out of the tailpipe, I'm giving serious thought to converting to a lesser polluting gas engine or going full electric. Any thoughts on this are most appreciated!
  7. Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    We just purchased a 66 Beetle that I believe has been converted from a 6 volt system to a 12 volt (everything is currently 12 volt). Under the hood was a wiring nightmare, most of the fuse block was unhooked and the wire ends were just taped together. After replacing the fuse block and fixing...
  8. Air-cooled / FAQs
    We just bought a 66 Beetle convertible and I have a few questions. Where is the engine number stamped and how do I decode that? Can the VIN be broken down for more information? Would a disc brake conversion (front) be worth the money spent? I have been looking at Jbugs for parts, who are some...
  9. MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    Writing from Vernon. I'm just about finished. The transmission shift rod out of the original car (with the manual steering system) seems to be incorrect for the power rack and pinion system that I installed. It interferes with the rack, and I cannot shift. The Victoria old parts dealer cannot...
    Has anyone done a Cabrio steering system from Manual to power? I am almost finished this complex job, and have one more item... The shifting rod from the manual system will not fit on the power system, as part of the rack gets in the way, so I need the proper shift rod. I am in contact with...

    Two weeks before Christmas 2010 I was facing replacing the main fuel pump, and decided to do the single pump 80 bucks is easier to take than 300. It was easy to do, and well cheap on the pocketbook. (90's digifant). Fast forward to two weeks before Christmas this year, while...
