Default Great looking Bug!!

Congratulations!! Your NBC is beautiful! I bought my wife her dream car a few months ago. It's an '06 NBC in Harvest Moon. She really loves it and I enjoy driving it on weekends with the top down. Great little car. Best of luck!!

Welcome to this Forum. These cars are a joy to drive and typically a pain to work on. I can state emphatically that our 2006 VW Ragtop is the most maintenance expensive car we've ever owned.

Default Door Panel Inserts

Here are pictures of our door panel inserts covered in gray cloth. Original leatherette covering was coming unglued and I had a local upholstery shop recover the door inserts in gray cloth (his recommendation). He told me the cloth would hold-up much longer than a leather material since these door panels are not meant to be disassembled to recover.

Later,
