Now that the body and chassis are apart, I am turning my attention the difficult decisions, before tackling the cleaning and sorting of parts.
Volkszone Interactive (VZi) is the forum for the VW scene. It has a wealth of knowledge and knowledgeable people, so I have been tapping into that resource to ask questions on things I am not sure about.
One of my niggling concerns is about how to re-trim the interior. As such I posted up the photo of my interior, which I understood to be original. It turns out, that it isn’t!
So, I have a conundrum. Do I do as I promised and return RUY to the condition he was in when he rolled out of the show room, or do I restore him to how I know him to be?
At the moment, I have the belief that unless things are being altered for safety (such as rear disc brake conversion, additional wiring for fuel pumps etc.) that I want RUY to be original. But I am torn by the fact that the current interior is unique as far as I can tell and that makes Ruy all the more special.
So, what should I do?
