Earlier in May I got hold of a replacement engine for the orange daily driver.

Fortunately no one was injured.
If my memory serves me well we replaced the dented fender with a leftover one from "KL 623".

"Orange's" motor was replaced earlier that year and finally the Bug was prepared for vehicle inspection which it passed without issues. 8-)
