      Yea I have some fiberglass repair as well in mine. Who decided that was a good idea? I'm at a junction of deciding if its worth repairing. Funny I have panels completely rusted out yet its the fiberglass I want to repair lol.

    3. 03-22-2012 11:50 PM #1333
      fiberglass is horrible.

      jason you need metal patch panels? i have leftover sheet metal from my front tubs...and that shait makes excellent panels...hell that's what the metal originally was intended for

      if you plan on keeping those tires and taking her offroading you might want to reconsider that and keep the 4.86

      No lol. Ran it with the 4.86s for a long time, the gearing is ridiculous and 1st is nonexistent. Im going with the 4.12s so that it wont be turning 4k rpm at 65 mph

      And danz, I still have the jetta, just finished repainting the clip

      B J panhead raise.... Who's done ? After a few weeks of pondering the vert, I'm thinking of doing a 1.5-2" with c hair of caster adjustment added in. Only thing I'm not sure on is how guys are converting the steering to 2 knuckles on the lower connection points..... How/what is done to attach to steering shaft?

      Don't forget the front apron mounts too.

      And if your gonna do it it ain't a big deal but make sure you reinforce the s-- t out of the lower part of the frame head...


      ..oh yeah and while your at it...might as well remove your shifting tube and bushings and replace it...because after you done. Raising the frame head..it's a pain in the a-- to relocate the hole in the area needed to remove the rod with the beam up and in the way!!!!

      buy ratted out beetle, throw every scene points earning trend on it, find said appraiser, get scenster beetle appraised for ridiculous amount of money, find someone who believes said appraiser's appraisal of beetle, sell clapped out over appraised beetle for mad loot. go buy split window bus and cruise on by the local art college for loose hippy chicks.

      you can dip these pieces of s--t all you want but ALL of them have so much filler BEFORE i start on 'em it will contaminate the filler and steel....like a sponge.

      dipping works well if they are clean and low on fillers and leads...other than that you have to blast em with low course sand or media.


      this one i had too strip by hand as the other 72 i did i picked it up in 2 trucks.

      the camaro pictured i had blasted because there some red flags that had me nervous..mind you we were told this car was ready for paint with minimal bady work...i sent it off to blasting to do the fenders wells...floors and misc s--t.

      when i got it back it needed complete floors,firewall,dash,trunk,inner and outer wells and massive rocker patches.


      unreal and it was supposed to be an in and out type of job...4 months later!!!!
