Good to see beetles going in the right direction and keeping the spirit alive
hi everyone i been on here for lil while now but havnt really posted up my nb so here it goes.......
what i started with
when the 2.0 started to go out on me
my girlfriend happy its getting fixed...
the replacement......24v vr6 and 6spd
after spending some nights cleaning, polishing, and painting.....
its in.... sort of lol
late night of tryin to button everything up
all buttoned up at h20i....black roof, blacked out headlights,turnsignals and tail lights.
next i was going to put an r32 drivetrain in but decided the money would go to giving it a face lift.
air ride went on....
and now most recently..... wheels
as it sits today notched frame rail and a few other things so it sits even now
next up is getting it to lay sub-frame some shaving,bodywork, and paint, then on to the interior.
thanks guys, and the front to get it to go lower i ground about 1/2 inch off the top of the knuckle and slid the strut further into it and cut the bottom of the strut 1/2 an inch. next is going to be cutting the strut towers and raising them up. i also have 1'' motor mount spacers to get rid of the axle bind. As for being this low static it doesn't happen unless you run a smaller wheel. i've cut and modified the wheel wells,struts,spindles, and upper and lower frame rails to get it to be were it is right now because of the 19'' audi wheels. but im not done yet it will be lower
I saw your car yesterday in Old Newcastle. Had to bang a Uee and go back and snap a few pics. Nice choice in wheels. I'm runnin the same thing on 18's. I will down load the shots and post em up.
Always wanted a VR6 bug........lookin good brah.

pebble pushers- oh ok makes sense i was wondering cause yeah its hard to get it really low on air i thought about doin hydros or making it a double a arm suspension and mounting the bag on the upper arm to get it where i want it.
2003NBTurboS- thanks man yeah thats were i live. If the blue jetta was behind it i was probably home. post up the pics id like to see it and get a vr6 and we can make it happen.

Pebble pushers- Yeah ima either buy the new XL airlift struts that are suppose to get you lower and have more lift or do the upper control arm idea I'll def post up pics if I do. 2003NBTurboS- aww come on why wouldn't you cut it up lol j/k well if you ever do get a shell and wanna do the swap let me know I'd be glad to lend a hand.
