That looks mental. I've never seen one before.

Looks awesome! My uncle is into the VW scene, although not modifying. He has just restored a split screen camper (can't remember what year though.. it's an early one with ribbed bumpers though), and won a few awards and whatnot :)

Have you done anything with the suspension on your karmann ghia?

I'm not sure if it's a barn door. He's on http://www.ssvc.org.uk/ . His log in (and funnily enough, his name :lol:) is Neil Barker :)
