      Saw this and thought it'd be fun to see everyone's ideas in one thread....



      VWVortex has some great angles for photoshopping here: http://www.vwvortex.com/artman/publi...cle_2913.shtml

      Might be kinda hard, but I'd love to see a baja bug chop out of the new version if anyone can pull it off.

      I was thinking about that. My chopping skills are not amazing, but it'd be fun.

      I wouldn't buy a Beetle to win any races, so maybe some air ride and Fuchs? Shave the handles rear bumper. Remove the stupid shark fin.

      This is a weird request but can anyone remove the line where the rear render meets the body and make it look like one piece as opposed to a tacked on fender?

      Before reading any other posts, I found the image odd. Just seems kind of strange to "advertise" with a simple Photoshop job with pretty poor execution. No offense to the OP.

      I am not defending him but I guess everyone should be mab at vortex for allowing it. Not the poster.

      Either way I dont really care I just think its funny that it is an issue with some that "self promoting" is bad or wrong.

      I am my biggest fan and I hope you are yours.

      Do good work and let your clients/customers promote for you.
      I like things with two wheels and things with four wheels.

      Can we just get back on topic here people. You have no power only mods do so stop being the wanna be police. If they have a problem with it they'll handle it.

      I was gonna contribute something, but there are way too many results when googling for "roof rack with a lot of crap on it". Now I'm depressed.
