(It's about 33 pics, so give it some time to load..)

As you know, I went to Voss to fix my seat to able to move it further back, a 800 km. drive, but worth it! (Even though my front - right damper went to hell ... it's being fixed by a certified Beetle mechanic atm)

Now, I'm no professional photographer, but I gave it a try ..

Here is the view from the house I stayed at, my friends house ..

Right after the below picture was taken, the damper decided to kill itself, at ca. 20-30 km.h ....

This is how we (they) fixed my seat :D

Before I drove home I had to do something about the damper situation, so this is what we did: placed a metal circle thingy on top of the damper and bolted it ontop, so the damper would stay put:

Hope you like it!

Really nice pics, I always liked the scenery in Norway. Nice house too :)
 
Yes, it really is something else isn't it?! Norwegians take it for granted, I think ...

Danes enjoy it though, and flock over here in the winters!

^ Yeah I'm guilty of that too :unsure: , though it has been some years since I've been there.
 
Great, thx buddy :D

The paint on your bug is really in good condition from what I can see from the pics. Nice pictures.

:cry: I want to go on holidays again (well, perhaps it's better to wait for the next summer, Norway at night might not be as impressive as I have it in my mind) - Nice pics of your Beetle, especially the one in front of the mountain from the lower view!
 
thx for the feedback you guys :mrgreen:

Nice pictures. I've been to Voss quite a few times actually. I've stayed in Bergen quite a bit as my Dad has associations with the University there, and with Voss being a shortish drive away, we went a fair bit. Some of the tunnels in the area are amazing. There's one on the way to Hardangervidda (a big plateaux which is a favourite with Skiiers for all you non Norwegians :p) that spirals up inside a large outcrop of rock. Amazing engineering!

He's british. Birmingham?
 
so I went back to get my Beetle back from the private mechanic last night, this is what he'd done: afterfilled engine & gearbox oil, welded the front axels right bearing-arm thingy + two new front shock absorbers, connected front window washer thingy, plus some other stuff ... all of this for $150 (includes 4 work hours)

I'm glad I found this mechanic, he's cheap and reliable (he's been "doing" Beetles for 16 years, and owns 17 of them..) and he likes what he's doing. I'll be doing alot on it myself, but I'll use this guy when it comes to repairs I don't think I should do, due to safety reasons ... btw, I'll be going back to him on Monday to fix some brakes issues on the right back wheel ...'
