Wow thats a project and a half!:wink: :beer:

Looks solid in all the right places! And its on marathon beetle wheels, the best 4 stud in my opinion! 😎

The screw holes are for the headlamp dipswitch.

Thats quite a project you have there! WHat are your immediate plans? Finish the welding I guess?

bugger thats something else i must be missing,
immediate plans are to tidy the welds on the pans, fit all new brakes,pipes etc, then tackle the bulk head, really not looking forward to that!

iv had the wheels for approx 4 years they've been on two of my past beetles, perhaps they weren't the bargain i thought!

Nah 50 notes seems pretty fair! Did they come with the chrome centre caps?

I´d see if I couldn´t patch that bulkhead if I were you. Looks too nice to be chopped out.

What colour should it/will it be?

Still, I would have guessed at around £40 for a set wit no caps and as yours seem to have their original paint on them that may add some value?:wink: :twisted:

I thought 66 was first year of head light dimmer switch being on indicator stalk?
My 66 had a switch on the indicator arm, kind of a button.

1966 was one of the major 'evolution' years for the Bug. You will find out there are quite a few 66 only parts, makes interesting research.
