Hehe yeah I guess I'm lucky, my wife helps me work on the cars. Back when we lived in California she even pulled the engine out of the Bug for me while I was at work (she knew I needed to take it out so she decided why not now) lol ...
Smile it will get Worse!!
I'm going to have to change my 165/85/15 front 195/65/15 rears to 175/65/15 front and 205/65/15 rears
Oh yeah and it's nice to have my wife help me out all the time, always helps to have an extra set of hands ! Now if only I could get her to work on the cars in a bikini instead of just when washing the cars
One thing I learned was to take everything with a grain of salt. It was funny, when I first got a super people were like.." why a stoopid beetle?" Then when I was done with it, it was..." well I don't usually like supers, but I really like yours!"
So just build for yourself, ignore the jerks who harass you... and have fun with it. What are your plans for it? Are you driving it right now?
And as far as the 'tex goes, I became an outcast years ago when I put carbs on my watercooled VWs.
Thx for the support brethren, now POST more motivational pix.

Haha... I was born in the 80's
Anyways., here are a few updates-
After a little cursing we got these bastards off!
Now we have a trunk full of parts...
I went by a welder and ran over some ideas with him. Now I am gonna make a jig and get to work on these arms. Then take them to him for the final welding!
And here is my idea for the rear skid plate. The front of the plate will bolt to the trans cradle. The solid red is going to be some 3/4' square tubing welded up to make a crossmember to the rear part of the plate to bolt to. There are some holes in the frame/boddy already there we can bolt it too.
Then the Yellow are going to be rubber inserts to absorb a little shock back there in the event of an impact. And the green is going to be the plate. It will also be 3/16's aluminum with speed holes for cooling and oil changing purposes.
More updates soon! Stay tuned...
