So guys, I finally got the engine running won't tick over etc but runs, a good friend who's a proper old skool car buff is coming tomorrow to help me get it right, he said do I have the timing figures? what does he mean? any tips would really help.
I assume he means the ignition timing, to do a proper job you need a strobe light and unfortunately you need to time it from underneath the car, the timing should be 10 Deg before TDC but when you are working underneath I think the timing is set at a different figure as the chain case have another set of markings, I guess those more knowledgeable will give you the figure.

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.
