Re:: 72 bug   

Hi, did a search here and on samba and did not find what I was looking for. Can some one specify the regulators I will need to make this work in my chop project or will my 72 be fine with what is in the doors? Thanks Greg and Joshua

Your's will work. 64 and earlier have to be changed to 65 and later.

The ones on my 66 Bug are very different from any of the early 70's Bugs I have ever owned

I know that the window sizes changed around 64, but then again maybe I have a model that someone changed them in, or it was an early 66 that they just used what was left of the early VW regulators and made them fit my 66 to get rid of parts

Vents are old school, they go with Volksrod style I kept mine when I chopped the top on "LUMPY"

The reason I like them is I have never run heater boxes in any of my VW's, I always replaced them with J-tubes because the boxes were always rusted so bad they wouldn't put out heat, I do have very good set of heater boxes now I may put on during the winter

I always drove with mine open in the winter time to keep the inside of the front windshield from frosting up, Then in the summer I would open them as far as possible so as to point the incoming air right at me to keep me a bit cooler. I can't open the one on the drivers side because of where the P/O mounted the Peep mirror, I was gonna move it when I got another one but after looking at the "Hot Rod Companies" website here http://www.thehotrodcompany.com/shop...&filterkey=mir
I like the ones at the very bottom of the page, the Model "A" Ford hinge pin mount mirrors

I'm gonna make me a set similar to them, I'm gonna start making a pattern so I can cast my own in aluminum, then use the round mirror from my peep mirror I have now and mount it to the hinge arm the same way, all tho I may hafta buy another complete mirror just to use the mirror piece on my passengers side

Have I ever said how much I "DON'T" like buying stuff, specially if it's something I know I can make

The regulators are different but they will work. Did on my 65 and a 73. 64 and down will need a 65-66 regulator for one piece glass.

I love the vents myself, I'd definitely miss them if I went with one piece. Not sure how functional they are on a chop due to their decreased size since I haven't had one yet, but I imagine they'd still pull a lot of air in

Make a paper template of the mirror you want (the glass part)
Take it to a glass & mirror shop & they will cut it out of regular mirror glass for really cheap.
Just DO NOT tell them it is going on a car (liability) Tell them it is for "yard art"
If you tell them it is going on a car they will not do it for you.

I have cut glass into circles so that's not a problem, it's making the swivel part that I don't really wanna do, not that it's that tough, I'd just need to make a ball cutter for my lathe first which I should probably do anyway, been in need of one for a while now

Hell I already have some 3 inch round stock I have from when I started making mirrors for my rail buggy, I just need to turn them and glue a piece of mirror in them, but it would be easier to just unscrew the screw off the mirror I already have and mount it to the arm that attaches to the car
They may even sell just the round mirror pieces separate, maybe I should call and ask about it

Thanks for the suggestion tho as I have said before, I hate buying something I can make


Ron
