Flo’s new bug

Flo’s new bug

Flo bought a bug from 1962. He found it on the internet as he was in america and made the deal to pick it up when he’s back.

Also they put in a customized tank. Thank you Robert…

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.
