here's my projecct, lowered the body, not the suspension
I saw a fenderless bug that looked just like this sitting on a trailer outside a VW shop here in FTC. it had red wheels, I forget wethere or not they were spokes or steelies. it mighta been an oval, I forget.
My car isn't your typical hot rod VW though. If you notice the front beams are about a foot off the ground while the body is still slammed, compare the beams to any other slammed VW where the beams are usually a couple inches off the ground. Also rear axles doesn't have any negative camber (broken axle look, like the black/red bug shown above), actually mine has a little positive camber.
Also I sectioned (body chopped, like a chop top) the body, made new shaped suicide doors, relocated the body, body drop (lowered the body, not the suspension),etc etc. Removed roughly 18" off the stock Beetle height. More info at my site: http://www.RuntRod.com

Another stupid, noob question from me... Sorry guys.
What is the thing on the fender ? is it a light ? ...also some people have them on the right side, some on the left.

I believe it fits in the "Old school accessories" category. I think it is a "wide guide pole" <<<I made that name up} used so you could tell how wide your car is ...especially when you have a narrow hood buldge blocking your view of the far fender. Same aisle as curb feelers!
