I try to use no aftermarket parts on my cars, that's why I really glad I found this cool old grills on TheSamba. They are very simple and functional, ideal for my "rennwagen" project! I have to replace some brackets, but looks to be easy. Who has more info about the origin of this grills???
I found this images on the net some days before. The overall look of this fine Standard oval is the one I want to make from my 59er. My Bug is a Deluxe, but will drop its shine (less trim, flat paintjob) for a functional look, what is looks cool for a "rennwagen".
Ok, some detail works left, some repaint here and there, but I can say it is done. Planning little lowering at the front only, but will see when the engins is in and the wheels got tyres. Mechanical components refreshed and built in by Balogh Atti. I'm glad with the reasult of his professional work!
