cdb15: @bugeater: how about this one? Nov 25, 2020 11:32:59 GMT
adl2: , that's just such a shame that someone let it get into that state. I know that's more than I could cope with but I admit I am slightly tempted. For the VIN, it would end up as a Trigger's broom of a restoration. Nov 25, 2020 22:26:43 GMT
burlmeister: Trouble fitting new 6052 fan belt. Alternator adjusted to the max. Belt is on the engine and alt pulleys but I just cannot get it to stretch over the lip of the fan pulley. Is there a trick to this? Driving me nuts! Nov 26, 2020 11:09:57 GMT
adl2: That barn find Bug as linked by is now bid to over a grand. Or should I say, that V5 doc for a Bug is up to over a grand. Nov 29, 2020 10:14:12 GMT

rooster: can any one tell me what car the canopy lock came of ? ive been told a triumph Jan 18, 2021 15:23:26 GMT
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 Jan 18, 2021 20:15:56 GMT

Jon T: Hi all, I am looking to purchase a bug, dont mind if needs some work, anyone point me in right direction. thanks< Apr 20, 2021 10:52:19 GMT
mysticmick: hi all . i recently purchased a bug . my dream car for restoration . i have the vin plate . with chassis number and engine number . but sadly no reg number . is there any way of finding out the original reg so i could apply for the v5 .. thanks in advance May 8, 2021 16:20:42 GMT
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. May 17, 2021 20:15:30 GMT
