Project #Super71 - Goodbye Gas Heater Hole

This is a pretty short entry. I figured it was a good time to fill in the hole in the front wheel well where the exhaust from the factory gas heater would vent. We had removed the original gas heater back in 1996 and since I didn't know how to weld back then I simply riveted some metal over the hole and covered it with filler. I have to admit that was a hack... but it did the job.

Once again we have no plans to install the factory gas heater in this Beetle. In fact, I have no idea what happened to that contraption all together. This time around I carefully fabricated a nice round metal disk that would fit in place perfectly. I welded it in place and called it a day.
