Josh's 56 Deluxe
« on: May 15, 2012, 05:37:29 PM »
So this is my Volkswagen. The body is in pretty good shape. A little rust here and  there, but overall pretty good. Right now its in the shop to fix the rust and to get it painted. My plan is to restore it to its original beige formatting, the only additional attachment i will have that i can think of is a stereo system with speakers to blast some tunes out..I need to buy parts etc and i wonder what  need to do first. because I'm practically new to this.

Welcome!  I will be back in town in a few months so maybe can help out. Since you are in santa clarita maybe some of the others in the club can also chip in.

Any questions on how to work on your ride feel free to post.

I plan on doing a vintage restoration. The only custom thing will be a sound system. It's going to be painted a beige with brick or tomato soup red interior and beige carpet. Imma try to do find... Um idk what they're called but those little signs on the back of the bug that tell what part of Europe it's from. I want to get one that's from Berlin. And if I have money try to get a foreign license plate . But first imma go to the Ponona swap meet for some parts. I'm gonna go with my day and grandpa.I hope there will be some good stuff cuz Im on a budget and need quite a few things...

Sounds cool!  The round oval with a "D" is what you want for germany (Deutschland). I dont know if there is a smaller city badge for Berlin specifically.

This is the current repro (empi)

Some different versions

and an original

You can get hood crests too

This place makes custom euro plates as well and are reasonably priced

Looks like the August 12th will be the first one I will be back for. I think the usual Saturday night campout will be the plan to get all the good deals. Anyone up for some carne asada tacos, beer and chorizo and eggs for breakfast?!

Thanx a bunch for the info!!! I will look through it and see which one I should consider...
Also for this Pomona I'm going to camp this Saturday night and see what Pomona offers...
I hope I can find a speaker grill or even if I'm really lucky a European license plate
