Question: I've done some welding and now I need to replace the floorpans and heater channels. How hard is this? What about international parts suppliers?
Answer: Floor pans aren't too hard, and can be done with the body on the Bug. Heater channels are quite a bit more work, and the body has to come off.
I recommend using a MIG welder. An experienced Bug body repair guy has recommended MIG gas with .022 inch wire.
Parts should be available easily in North America, and I've heard there are good suppliers in Canada, though I don't know of any. If you find parts suppliers in your country, please drop me a note with contact info.
