Yeah that is a good question I need to know also
Anyone have experience with mid america motorworks for the pan and heater channel as well as their other metal
What about JC Whitney?
Both of those are closer to me in Indiana then the California parts houses
I have heard a few people say Cip1 does not have good metal
I just bought new pans at a place in New Albany, In. Just across the river from Louisville.From what I can tell the pans look really, really good. Solid and the trial fit seems to line up perfectly.
Bought them from Happys VW Shop.
That guy has just about anything you could want in body metal. Don't know if that's to far from you or not?
I'll second that. Happy's is the biggest little VW shop in the area. That guy's got all kinds of stuff and is full of knowledge.
about 237 miles from me not too far but too far to drive on a regular basis
Might be worth it to pick up all the big sheet metal parts. but 40 miles further and I could drive to Mid America
I nee a website or phone # if you have one
Support the little guy! lol!!
MidAmerica is a great resource, don't get me wrong, but all you'll get is your heat channels. Happy will give you customer service. He can honestly answer your questions because he's probably done that job a couple times before.
I love the smaller shops
I used to frequent J Bugs before they were bought out by California Pacific and moved to Oceanside, Ca
The main reason was it was 2 miles from my house in Hawthorne, Ca
Then when I lived in La Costa, Ca (San Diego) I used VW Paradise which was a great place.
VW shops are a dime a dozen in Cali, out here in the Midwest they aren't common at all.
Okay, I found the website
2ND_ONE - Page: 1 of 9
Don't ask me why the link is 2nd ONE LOL
You beat me to it. My link wasn't working so I had to go find another way in.
BTW, my buddy just called and said they were at the shop cutting on that roof as we speak. He called to get the measurements. We'll have the shipping figured out tomorrow for you.
Cool!!! Just let me know
I was curious since it is a 64 clip how will that line up on a curved windsheild super or is the top of the roof the same and just different down below? I know the roof has the same curve etc but are the windshield posts different? I'll just have the sunroof section welded in but if it is different I might need to get measurments on a 73 super sunroof location.
That's a good question. I would think the roof line is the same. The front pillars are definitely different. Not sure on the dimensions of the later sunroof bugs. '64 is the first year of the metal slider, so things may have changed by the later years. You have to watch cutting into the roof line because the cables run through there that operate it. You might want to check it out before we go any further. I'd hate to ship you something that you can't use.
