    john,

    As i’m looking at your car i noticed that the top doesn’t match the interior seats ,Im assuming that the boot and the side curtains matches the top and the carpet matches the interior seats.That is the way mine is.I was thinking about changing the top and boot to match seats.Now i’m wondering.I wouldn’t change it if i thought this is the way it was met to be.

    love your car,love your dogs

    Greg -what you are seeing is the underside of the convertible top.

    Is your London Roadster a V W pan or factory bulit chassis?  I do have many questions .I just picked up my London Roadster… any enlightenment on what to expect in the  future a far as maintenance ?

    Happy New Year !

    John, I’m so envious right now, you’re driving around the beach and I look outside and see white fluffly stuff blowing in the wind, and it ain’t sand.  Love the BRG color of your car too.

    Not a factory VW although it may use some VW components.

    Looks like my steel chassis. Factory built London Roadster. Same coilover shocks. Rear shocks inside coil spring suspension. front spindle’s ,rotors, brakes from a 66-71 squareback or fastback.

    Car looks great.

    That there’s a real twin A-arm automotive suspension, bunkie! Nice. Mendaleoa (spelled wrong) gets quite a bit of scratch to put something that looks a lot like that in VW-based tube-framed cars.
