and then the trouble comes : the suspension arms (from n°14) broke when I put the suspension. I'm not sure of what I haven't done well but as I'm the only one to have this problem, I think I have done something wrong. So now I'm waiting for a new n°14.

Hello,

Nothing important this week : only the rear left wheel.
But I have got a new number 14 and try not to break anything this time and... it was without any difficulties.
In fact for the suspension the trouble was... my head at 95%, too difficult to explain for me in english but there is nothing wrong with the suspension arms.

Glad Plan B worked with the suspension.

I'm on holiday in Thailand at the moment, and I've seen several original Beetles around, including a pink one !!

Hello,

Last week I've got number 20 but... not number 19 ! Hope it will be ok for this week
Well the number 20 was rather simple as it's the end of the second seat :

Hello,

So I have got number 19 and 21
On the number 19 I should have screwed the wheel but I'm waiting to have both sides for that
For the number 21, 2 pieces and one screw : 3 minutes

That would suggest that they have got a logical build sequence :laughing-rolling:

hehe, it's not an EM model so maybe - the alpine is a different story, as with the db5, they started with the engine, a bonnet, a wheel...

Hello,

Last Saturday my news agent had my late numbers 23 - 24 and 25 so here it is, in fact nothing original as we have the second door, a fourth wheel and the second rear suspension arm.

Hello,

Here is the 29, the central part of the chassis. Only the front should have been screwed, but I can't resist to screw also the rear.

very nice olivier, can the springs be replaced by softer pieces?
as I see from pictures the cocci is standing very high, so might be a good idea to do a lowering job...
