that hubcap on the air-intake won't clear the hood right? nice idea though, and i LOVE the idea of the ceilinglight in the C-Console.

and the plate is perfect. must have set you back a pretty penny.

hubcap on airfilter tin will not clear the hood when closed, but i have another for when i close the hood, the beetle hubcap idea is only for the hood up and show only. originally i was going to chrome the standard Knecht/ Mann airfilter tin, until we realised the hubcap is almost the same size. its only a custom trick really

i think cutting only about an inch from the bottom of the hubcap would clear the hood. then maybe weld/solder it to a spare filter and chrome that together?

the interior is the standard Golf CL interior, but re-trimmed in vinyl and tweed fabric, it was meant to look older, like a Type3 or Karmann Ghia, so thats why i lost the head rests on the front seats, thanks for the comments, guys, i appreciate it
