Doubt if that donor was a 930. Note the front fenders are flared and glass too. However, if it was, then the owner and shop should be beaten with a breaker-bar. The Gemballa Avalanche 930 conversions were in a whole different league back in the day. http://www.1000sel.com/index.php/por...-930-avalanche

thanks for the link, and good eye! That certainly would be tragic if it was a true 930.

That was it! Gemballa! I couldn't remember the name, but that was what Vanilla Ice had back in the day. Of course it was "a rag top so his hair could blow..." ;-)

Yeah, yeah, I know. What a misspent youth!

Good lord! How would you find the line you just cut with all that white leather? No wonder they went under!

The one I saw had pretty standard looking bolts. I would have thought some sort of stainless or dzus style fastening would look better.

Glueing them in place seems like a good option. While they have some appeal today I'm sure in a few years they'll devalue a truck.

Please don't do this to a 66 2A. Do it to a late S3 or defender.

I hate to do it to as nice of the vehicle as it is but that's all I can find and it has zero rust on the body

------ Follow up post added July 21st, 2015 07:26 AM ------

I would love to trade it for a later model I really hate to cut up a part of history
