I am in the US. I just purchased a Bond Bug. It arrives next week. How does one access the engine compartment. I have looked a many YouTube videos with no luck I will join the club as soon as the car arrives and I have the necessary information to do so Thanks George
I purchased it from near London restored it over a number of years. Then I drove it to Woburn for one of the Bug Club Rallys. Possibly the 30th. I never used it as I had FGU my other bug. I sold it to Brin in Norfolk who drove it all the way back home. Brin sold it and it went to the USA where it disapeared for a few years. Bruce Weiner then got hold of it for his microcar museum where it was on show. He then got rid of his complete museum with a 2 day auction. The photo he had taken has since been used many many times on folks who produce products with the bond bug printed on it. if you look on e bay there is usually one or 2 with uce on.

rooster: can any one tell me what car the canopy lock came of ? ive been told a triumph

rogeru7: Hi the basic lock is off a Triumph but it will then need a major mod to be used on the Bug canopy unless you have access to a lathe and a mill it’s not an easy mod

cdb15: To Mystic Mick: contact HPI and ask if they will do a VIN-only check. Usually if you have the registration it's £19 or so, but may be different from the VIN. Or there is a DVLA procedure using form V62 - check out the government web site for the procedure.
