Believe me, that's not the only 2 we have. I've also got Herbie, and 2 other Old Beetles. We're a true VW loving family :banana: 5 VWs, a caddy, and a benz.

The saddle bags are awesome. I bought them from Mid America about 3 years ago. I was originally going to keep my 2 voume owners manual in there, but with both in there it would have been too heavy. So I just keep misc. stuff in there now. The pedals are from the driver gear catalog. I ordered them at the dealer I used to work at, along with the Turbo S dead pedal.

Do you know if they are still available? And where?

They look super handy, and a nice way to get all kinds of stuff out of the car, and into the bags.

I got mine from Mid America Motorworks. Not sure if they still have them or not. Another place to try is TVA accessories.

As promised, here's the pics of Elwood's Magnaflow ehaust which went on today. Man does it sound awesome! A BIG thanks goes to my buds Josh and Brett Kerlek from Dreamwerks Tuning for helping out with the install, and also to my bud Ben Prickett from Magnaflow for hooking me up with the exhaust. :banana:

where did you get the ipod holder?
Found it at BestBuy. It's made by Griffin. It's made of foam rubber and is similar to the holdphone that VW sells. This one you can flip around and it holds both regular iPods and minis, and even has notches in both sides for charging cords. I think it was only like $10. :cool:

I finally got around to painting and installing my dash kit. I bought it off the old .org and it was originally yellow. I went to walmart a couple nights ago to get some cleaning stuff for the show this weekend and I figured I might as well get the paint and clear coat for this project. It's funny, the silver I picked is almost dead on for VWs interior silver which is a big plus in adding to the factory look I wanted. I also painted the door handle scratch guards I picked up at Mid America's FunFest back in June for the bank breaking price of $2.
