1971 VW Super Beetle - Heater Channel Removal:

Video Overview:

When we first started working on our 1971 Super Beetle we noticed a bit of rust in the left side heater channel. The more and more work we did, the more rust we discovered so as opposed to patching most of the channel we decided to remove the entire piece and replace it. Follow along with our tech as he cuts, grinds and tears out the old rusted heater channel.
