    I have been a long time keen Kombi and Beetle fan. I drove Kombis in the Army as a duty vehicles. I also did some welding on my friends beetle on the floor panel. I have never owned one, but now that I am retired I am looking around for a project to keep me busy. I am new to these threads and things but hear goes.

    Kind Regards

    Frank

    Hi and welcome to KC. Must have been a while since you drove them in the Army. We had them in the Air Force. Some were used as crew vans on the tarmac, some as general purpose people movers and some as mobile control towers. Even had them in Vietnam in 1969, both split window and early bay.

    Hi Tony

    Tony I have not done much with the VW but a lot with other cars. I have done a bit of every things in my 69 years but the new stuff leaves me scratching my head.
