Installed the skid plate this afternoon that I ordered from vdubparts.com. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m very pleased with the quality and fit of the plate. Had it installed in just a few minutes. Just an extra layer of protection against road rash. If you’re looking for a good, quality, piece that’s priced right, check out vdubparts.com.
Thanks to Lenora, Shauna and Colby for picking up some new VW die cast to add to the collection. Colby found a really cool M2 1956 VW Beetle Deluxe model kit complete with wheel options and lift. Lenora found 2 Walmart exclusive M2 VW’s. A 1959 VW Microbus Deluxe and a 1953 VW Beetle Deluxe. Both with really neat paint schemes. Shauna picked up a Hot Wheels “The Beatles Yellow Submarine” Kool Kombi and a Artistic License Series VW Bug. Both are really cool, love The Beatles Kombi!
Got the skid plate in the mail today that I ordered from vdubparts.com. Very fast shipping, quality of the part is excellent. It came in raw steel just as advertised, so I cleaned it and gave it a fresh coat of paint just for rust prevention. I’m sure I’ll wear the paint off the bottom soon enough. I hope to get it installed this week, more pics to follow.
