Hi everybody! My name is Dan and I have a 412. Second air-cooled VW for me but my first foray out of Type I land. Not many in the KS/MO area of the midwest where I am.

Seems like 1/2 of the type 4 archives are on the samba and 1/2 are over here. Thought it was time I entered this 1/2 of the type 4 world. :)

Hi all, I just found this group. I’m Mike and live in Houston. I have a ‘73 412 Wagon I bought new in San Diego. I also have a ‘68 Beetle I bought in ‘71. Both of them need some work, and now that I am retired, hopefully I can get to them.

Hi there,

My name is Lee, I live in the UK and I have always been an avid fan of V-Dubs ever since I was a child. I've have owed a few over the years, at present I have a 71 bug, albeit a shell (body off resto) at the moment, and also I presently own a Type 4. I will be the first one to admit that I rather under estimated the amount of work that the Type 4 needed and warranted to nurture this classic back onto the road, however we are nearly there. I do hope to gain some more insight and assistance to aid the long journey of both my current resto's as they progress and I would greatly appreciate any help that members are willing to give from the wealth of skills, knowledge and experience that exists of this forum.

Kind Regards,

Lee.

Hi, here are just a few pics of the ongoing repairs and weather proofing and structural overhaul of the 411...

As you can see basically a winter spent welding all corners of the car, but all good now and floorpan water tight and triple undersealed.
Thanks for the welcome.

Especially Ray I'm sure I'll be contacting you, as you seem to be the go to Guru in the area of the Type4's.

Lee.
