Cool, let us know how it turns out, my own 67 is Zenith blue also and I was wondering if any of the WW fender beadings would be a close enough match

I have worked on the 66 most of the week making great progress so far .Fender beading are blue and the running boards as well which is the way they were when build. New visors,mirror,both door handles and ignition key all use the same key.

Frenchy could you post a pic of how you did the fender wells? what type of undercoat or chip guard was used? I am trying to decide how to do mine and any advice or type you used would be helpful.
Thanks,

Larry

Did you do the inside of the fenders also or just the body side?
Thanks,

great looking car - the best bit of a build (apart from driving it) is putting all the final touches together...

Today i installed the wiper motor assembly and wiper arms and blades. New glove box and wiper switch and headlight switch . Front hood installed with VW emblem and hood handle. As you know after installing the hood now you are ready to install the handle and latch the next step can be very stressful once you think you have it all lined up and to close the hood and wonder if you will be able to open it. If you do these adjustment and pay attention for the latch to be dead center you will be OK . Tomorrow i will be taking all of the original body side molding and hood molding to be polished .

Frenchy,

You use very nice fasteners, is this a special set you can buy somewhere?

Goedemorgen Edgar.  Smiley

Just an example, they are called "button head" socket screws or "button head" bolts.
I use them a lot on my motorbikes due to their light weight, in bright zinc finish (stainless can sometimes cause corrosion over time).

I have no idea whether this company is good or not, but just to give an example ........

  I received the front and rear bumpers and bumper guards yesterday from WW and was able to install only the rear one as the front had small scratches .
