The second week in America

This time Domi and Flo want to show you some impressions of the second week travelling around with Herbie. They have been to Las Vegas, Zion- Nationalpark, Bryce-Canyon-Nationalpark and some other beautiful places! In Vegas they went to Justin’s workshop the „Beetle Barn“ to fix the magnetic plug of the differential because it was completely rounded from so many oil changes.

After two weeks of welding…

He put in a new heaterchannel, a cross memper under the rear seat and a repair section for the rear quater panel. He also did a lot of welding in the front and rear wheelhouses and the firewall. The new cross member doesn’t fit... Read more
