Nice, you are doing a great job. I can imagine that it´s not easy to do quite everything by yourself, but you made it and you made it very professional and clean.

I would love to own a Beatle. It´s a very nice car. Was looking for one but at the end I bought an 80s Mercedes.

 

Are you going to lower it or keep it original?

Keep it mostly original with a few little changes. (Unique paint colour, lowback seats, seat and door panel upholstery, hubcaps, whitewall tires, removed rear bumper bar, us spec rear taillights)

Nice job, I like the wheels a lot. So, how is it going? Going to be ready for this Spring?

Just for inspiration, think about lowering a little, Like 40/40mm. It will give it a little sporty touch but still comfortable and keeping quite the original look.

Yeah I might lower it eventually, right now my priorities is just getting it road worthy, speaking of which, today was a very important day....

 

I came home this afternoon to find a brand new chrome starter motor waiting for me, the old one bit the dust over a month ago so Ive just been stuck with nothing to do on the car. I wrangled it in, dropped in the back and front seats, and took my beetle for its first official drive in years. I only went around the block because its unregistered and there were a couple small problems with the accelerator that need fixing, but for the most part shes done...
