Hello all. My name is Steve, and I am new to this forum and VWs in general. My wife and I just bought a 1974 Super Beetle Convertible, and we plan to perform a moderate restoration on it. While I am new to VWs, I have been working on cars - my own and others - for about 50 years. Our bug needs a fair amount of cleaning and refinishing, but it is mechanically and structurally sound and runs fairly well. Since I don't have much experience working on older Beetles, I will be asking many questions of the forum members to benefit from your expertise. Please forgive me if some of my questions may seem basic or trivial, but I assure you that if I ask, I don't already know the answer. Thanks in advance for whatever help you can lend.
