New beetle owner here!

I purchased a salvaged 2010 beetle today! Got a killer deal on itt and it only has 63k miles.
The photo system is weird, but it appears to have been side swiped. My dad does body work so it will be a fairly easy fix. The read bumper was hit a little hard, it broke driver side taillight.
The goal is; new taillight, salvage the bumper to save money, fill in the dents and knock out some others, sand and new paint all over, EYELIDS.

I can't wait to actually get her and see what trim level she is. I am praying for cruise control and heated seats :> she is being delivered sometime next week most likely. We won't get to work on her much for a bit, my dad just purchased my mom a new van he is in the process of painting and fixing.

I look forward to speaking with all of you and learning about my new baby!!

Welcome to the Org, and thank you for adopting this poor New Beetle!

If you have not, start a thread in the Photo area, and start documenting the resoration. Add any and all new photos and updates in that thread. That way, they are all together in one place! :)

Again, Welcome! :wave2:

Definitely the plan! I cant wait to photograph the whole process. I had to get on my computer, the ipad only lets me attach on photo at a time.

Howdy from Central NC. There's a few of us around the state.

OMG I wondered if any beetle groups did the dragon!!
My car will definitely not be ready in time, and I have an event the following weekend taking up my time, but next year that is for sure happening!!!
We do the Tail of the Dragon the first Saturday each May and the Back of the Dragon last Saturday in October. Hope to see you at ToD in May.
