Would help but in Jefferys Bay.

What seams to be the problem with the car,

Is it not something you can do your self with the help of this forum ??

There is Gerald in Green bushes that does work on beetles, can PM you his number.

Please place photo's in a Project thread here on the forum, and your problems then we can help you do the repairs, and you then can pass on this knowledge on to your son.

Win - Win all around.

HMmmmmm,...see this beetle is already marking it's territory !!👀

Nice beetle,.. pics. Also a some sort of a bench grinder in the garage !!,,...hands can't be too round,....me thiinks

So all you need now is a angle gringer and a shifter or two ,...we in the eastern cape love angle grinders !!😬,....ask Herman about it.

So!,..do you want to work on it yourself or do you want somebody to fix the issues for you?

Talk to me Haans
