I had to join and comment. Because I purchased a Bug to convert also. Although mine is a bit rougher as it is a partial Baja build that someone never finished. I'm hoping that with a fiberglass front and fiberglass rear fenders and no rear - the weight will be significantly reduced.

A couple things that I found amusing...

I imagine it was the same look when I brought home my 69 Beetle to convert.

Mine is dismantled also. And every time I work on it, I think the same thing.

As things worked out the only day I could pick up my "Project" was on Earth Day. I have vowed to get it finished for our county fair which is in Sept.

Your Bug looks great. Keep going. It also looks mostly rust free. I have some very rusty areas to attend to on mine.
