don't worry about it, you did what you could for the 1302,... maybe one day she'll return to you and at least you'll know what she needs.
that split is getting more and more tempting,.. but till i finish the 182 i cannot even think about touching another vehicle. still looking for tyres!
if you have a good beetle, bus, ghia etc PLEASE DON'T BE GREEDY. either restore and drive it, sell it to an enthusiast who'll keep her running or at leat take precautions to ensure the vehicle stays alive for as long as possible. i'm getting tired of people hoarding great cars (like the karman in KHI which has been rotting at someones home for years!!!)
