Originally focused on the restoration of my November 1961 built (1962 model year) Type 3 Karmann Ghia (343) I have now extended the blog to cover the ongoing ownership of my 1964 built (1965 model year) RHD type 3 Karmann Ghia (344) purchased in 1982.

Small mechanical tweaks

I received a pair of NOS upper bump stops (snubbers) from ISP West this week. The existing ones are badly cracked and will be replaced with the new ones when I do the final set up of the front end.

I have also replaced the rear brake drum balance bars with the ones I picked up at Bad Camberg, the previous ones were both left hand ones and the car now has a left and right hand one which should be better for it and for stopping!
