Just a thought to all those bringing a bug to the club rally. To everyone hoping to go on a road run with other Bugs at the Bug Club rally, please will you get your Bug on the road and USE IT, USE IT, USE IT, before the rally. Every day if you can. Go to local shows, pop to the shops, visit your friends - just run it, and make sure that your lights, wipers, charging systems etc work. If you had a problem with something last time you ran the car, and its been in the garage ever since, it won't magically fix itself - so get it sorted now, before you set out to the rally. We want everyone to be safe, and enjoy the ride " I can forsee that lots of people will come either with cars they have just refurbished, or cars that have been off road since the first lockdown. If they get running them NOW, it might just avoid us having a string of cars at the side of the road, with one breakdown after another, inconveniencing other traffic and putting lives at risk. Nobody minds a genuine breakdown, but it gets a bit much when people break down with a problem they had last summer, which they have had nearly a year to fix.
Not a moan but potentially good piece of advice to all. Also keep letting me know if you plan attending and when. Thanks.
Wise words Karl, lets hope people take heed. I only broke down three times on sundays run to the Luton Festival of Transport rally! The Bug is new to me so I'm expecting a few issues before I can say it's reliable. Fuel supply issues due to perished pipework, typical of unused vehicles.
bugberk: Just put the engine/box into my rolling chassis, and the prop shaft seems to be about 3" short, Have I been given the wrong one? this a total rebuild from a pile of bits.

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

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

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.
