    Thanks, Rut
    Originals were MOWAG green. Most replacements were black.

    The original was engine green. If you want to do it correct, you put it on the engine with the fan belt in place, before painting.

    Jack's Bugeye was OEW, but there was also a Leaf Green Bugeye featured in the lobby. If I remember correctly, it belonged to Dave Woerpel and also had original green rubber floor mats. I'll post pictures later when I can retrieve them from an old drive.
