I've still got the Bonito and use it almost everyday when it's not raining. Have been to Le Mans, toured France a couple of times and done various track days. The latest outing was the Shere Hill Climb where a public road is closed for the day and all sorts of cars from a V8 aero engined Veteren to ...

Onderwerp: Windscreen size. De grootte van de voorruit.

Thanks Nuni. The height of mine is the same +/- 1mm. The width is difficult to measure accurately but as the gap between the screen and the apeture is the same all round so I'm assuming it's correct too. I guess I just need to try harder to get it to fit. Bedankt Nuni. De hoogte van mij is hetzelfde...

Hi Burty,
Yes, I was using electrical wire to fit the rubber seal. I think warming the seal to make it more flexible will help too.

Has anyone got a measurement of the windscreen size as a double check?

Cheers, Neil

Hi Burty, Thanks for you reply. Today I laid the windscreen in place without the rubber seal and it looks as though it should fit with approximately 10mm gap all round. It's a bit twisted but I think it should flex that much to allow it to fit. I was using plenty of lubricant (cherry flavour) which ...

Windscreen size. De grootte van de voorruit.

I'm trying to fit the windscreen and having problems. I am using a new windscreen from Pilkingtons and a new rubber but it is too big for the apeture. Please can someone measure a genuine Ford windscreen a tell me the size it should be. The dimension from top to bottom will tell me if mine is correc...

It's been a while since I wrote on here. Has it really been 3 years! I spent all that time repairing the body where it had been 'modified' and building the chassis. A few weekends ago I did a quick and dirty paint job just to make all same colour. Here's a few pictures of the progress so far. Het is...

I should be able to use the Beetle door handles but the lock mechanism and striker plate will not fit the fiberglass moulding of my car. Looking at the shape of the mouldings I think they might be designed for MGB components. I have bought some off ebay so hopefully they will fit. (edit Burty) Ik zo...

Door Locks

I've been working on my Bonito fitting the doors and window frames etc. According the FT instruction manual the door locks are from Beetle but they will not fit my doors. My kit is a UK AED made in the mid 1980's. Other differences are the rear window which is from a Ford Escort Mk3/4. Does anyone k...

Thats not the part number I've been searching for but there is a tractor parts supplier in the UK can lists them and they look like the correct type. They don't supply to the public but I'll phone them tomorrow and find out who the distributor is.

Hi Wilmer, thanks for the information. Please can you let me know the name of the company that can supply the rear lights. It's not the last part I need but I've searched the internet and can't find a supplier in the UK so would like to get some while they are still available.
Cheers, Neil

I saw this on ebay after the auction had finished with the car unsold at £100. I emailed him to see how much he wanted and he told me the car did sell but the cheque bounced so he still had it but he was going to built it onto a Camaro chassis. He later came back to me and asked how much I would giv...

Hi Burty, Yes, I survived Xmas. I went skiing in La Tania with my wife and daughter and saw my son who is working there this season. I haven't made any progress on the Bonito yet but have now got a Beetle floorpan to build it onto. I will need to prepare the floorpan and repair the fibreglass where ...
