Additional information:
Just purchased [August 2020] and will be undergoing full restoration and be hopefully completed by April 2021. Owner has several VW in collection 1970 1302 LS Sunroof (HUGO), 1977 VW Cabrio (ROCKET) VW 2005 Aircooled T2. This new addition will be put back to original specification and restored in the coming months by dedicated team of professionals.

May 2021 update
The vehicle has now been painted, and is in the reassembly phase.
The rear wing was replaced with an original from Germany.
All new rubber seals from West Coast Metric and VW Heritage are being used.
The bumpers are out for plating, and the interior is in rework.
Originality is key to getting this VW what it deserves.
All being well, the restoration will be complete in about 6 weeks.

June 2021 update
Reassembly continues. The headlining is now going to be replaced, but has to be ordered from the USA as no one has the correct material in stock in the UK.

January 2022 update
The seats have been reupholstered. We think this is the best facsimile of the original trim we've ever seen.

February 2022 update
The old headlining is out, and the replacement material is a perfect match for the non-perforated original.
