Blog2018 ≫ Updated estimate for the beetle

Dougie from OG Buswerks got back to me, is looking more like £360 for an axle and £400 for labour / fitting, plus the cost of trailering it there, plus any other unknowns so it might finally time to say goodbye. I have the money put by, I have been saving a bit per month expecting there to be jobs to do on it but it does now seem to be one big job after another. I was hoping to use the money I have for improved lights and repairing some of the rust I could see, but seems there is a lot more I could not see.
