Totally stock looking but wacked with the lowering stick - I approve!

What's the gizmo on the front screen above the tax disc?

Thanks man, the engine block etc I painted with a paint from a company called eastwoods alumablast, as long as you apply it in thin coats it gives the look of raw aluminium.

The trim was easy to get as they remake it all, trouble is there is a lot of crap reproduction parts. Most of my bits came from California where the quality is much much better.

The paintwork I cant take credit for, it went to a company in Manchester who are really good and well known for doing cars in the Rs scene. After painting they wet sanded the car several times to remove the orange peel. I then refined it further once the car was back with me.

Surprisingly the car needed very little welding and is all steel and original panels etc. Quite a rarity for a Beetle as they rust EVERYWHERE but then it is nearly 58 years old.
