Some picture of the upgrades in progress on my speedster.

My phylosophy is to make closer to the original, a lot of OE parts has been used like fuel tank, hinges, maintenance covers, ect.

The bodywork is finished and it will normally be painted end of the month.

Some other details.

Front wing support, the tube is attached to the headlight and is used for e-wiring like the original speedster. A support is also added on the rear fenders.

These supports are necesserary to avoid cracks consequently to vibrations of the body.


Engine hood latch, to use the original one it's solve the problem to easily open the hood.


Jack support using the square tube, is not finished on the picture.

By this way the vw jack can be used.

I am, and in the last few years I think my favorite Speedster colors have become this, Meissen and Aetna blue. If I was so inclined (and financed) I think if I ever did a PTS it would be one of these three.

My favorite is (for obvious reasons) Oslo Blue, but this is sooooo close.  Like I said previously, I love me some aquamarine, so I'll manifest my inner Stan here: "Dang!"
