buckle up it's the law - although not for pre 1970's cars...

Some enjoy the freedom of driving around without seat belts, for me it is an unsafe feeling.
So I ordered a set of tan colored seat belts - 2 automatic 3-point belts for the front, 2 lap belts for the rear:
If you are looking for e-approved seat belts - even in different colors - you can look here:

new ears day

Time for new rear view mirrors, the left one was looking  a bit too used, the right one was a Variant's "elephant's-ear". So, I ordered a new set of  "pig ears":

Finally all 4 corners are equipped with the 2 liter Porsche alloys! Look.
4x2 liter = 8 liter ;-)

Watch out! - the Volksback, now on the streets!

There is a lot work ahead of me, but it runs fine and now, with the license plates installed,  I can use it whenever I want!
The front tyres in 165/65/15 were not available, so I mounted the Ronals up front to get this thing going...
License plate is also not too bad!
Next week the 2 liter Fuchs wheels are on all 4 corners and hopefully the center caps will also find their way to me and then onto the Volksback!
