In the months following moving into our house I began stripping down the Bug as much as possible removing everything off the body that could be removed with the eventual goal of pulling the body off the pan so that it could be stripped of paint, any rust or body issues repaired, and ultimatelty repainted.

First the doors and hood came off...

Then the windows were removed...

And the dashboard too...

There was more to it than that but the passage of time since I did it has marred my memory a bit. All of the parts are now scattered in the garage, the shed, and in the case of the window glass, the master bedroom closet to keep it safe from getting broken.
