Hi!
Im pretty new, and I`m just wondering, is it possible to cut this off in small sections, and weld it instead, so I dont get that "water collector" between the roof and body? My bug will not be used i an "everyday scene" so im not worried the water will run in the car...

Anyone know how to, and the pitfalls by doing this, if possible?
Grateful for any answers

I take it you want to get rid of the rain gutter along the top of the body and in front of the door post. One thing to remember is it is a body seam, so you will have to remove a little and then weld a little. While I haven't done it to my vehicles I have seen a few bugs that have had it done so it is not new. Just have a good TIG welder and do a little at a time so you don't warp the heck out of things( this WILL happen if you don't control the heat) and you should do OK.
