Jacked up drain plug was causing the Beetle to leak oil. Dealer said it was the incorrect drain plug - it’s a retired rental so I imagine it was lumped in with a bunch of other cars for oil changes all at the same time and things get mixed up. Who knows, it’s fixed now.

I did a little testing with the chrome tape on the door molding. I’m not totally sold on the look, however I was rushing so I will follow up with that later.
Here is a picture of what I’m attempting to recreate - I also dig these wheels.
