I asked the universe if I should do a ragtop conversion on the Beetle. The universe in turn, put one right in my lap. My lap and the rest of me will be making a two hour drive to collect in the next couple weeks, but so it goes.
It happened that quickly; As a curiosity, I scanned the classifieds on the Samba and found this for a very reasonable price.
This roof clip from a '63 isn't perfect or complete but it is a great start! The general consensus within the VW community is that aftermarket ragtops are subpar to a donor clip. Well, I now have a donor clip and can gradually buy all the bits as I go. This will make it easier to budget things over the winter.
It's funny how little signs pop up now and again.
Yesterday I wrote about my old friend Victor; A few hours later, I spied a faded red Beetle (post '67) in the Dofasco parking lot. What are the odds?
I believe in listening to the universe and it seems the universe occasionally listens to me.
Until next time....
I am still working on the Matchless engine rebuild. Progress is being held up by a $1.38 sludge trap screw that will arrive in a few weeks.
