Light blue bathes the body and roof, and some overspray can be seen, as well as a little bit of previous sanding swirls in the body repairs. A small area of discoloration is also noted. Rounded fenders are now in cream, with the front fenders having LED headlights with chromed visors looking a lot like eyelashes for cars. The lenses for the turn signals and taillights have been smoked and appear darker, which goes with the black rubber piping seen throughout between the seams of the fenders and bodywork. All chrome trimmings are very nice and badging is all correct designating the automatic stick shift. Blackwall tires have shiny dog dish style wheel coverings and this adds to the black trim mystique.

A single round gauge cluster is in the very center of the steering wheel, and a BEETLE badge now screams at you in lieu of a radio. More burl for the glove box door and original seating in black textured vinyl for the front buckets and back bench.
