Always advisable! afro

Can you post up a picture of your wheels on your bug with the smart car tyres on, I fancy them for bob but I want to make sure they fit 5.5" rims.

Cheers crewkid

This is the sort of plan at the moment Twisted Evil

Complete strip down.
Get the floor, body edges, suspension and engine tin sand blasted.
1500 or GT box.
Keeping the the same motor but will get a couple of little mods.
All new brakes, steering and suspension.
All new rubbers.
All new interior.
All new chrome.
Mag industry, gas burners or something along those lines.
Narrowed beam.
Paint the floor, suspension, and tin in 2K black..
Paint the body in the OG 2K metalic blue .
Upright 70's wings ect ect.

And what ever repairs need doing. Off the top of my head..

Both heater channel bottom plates. Due to the body being welded to the floor.
Rear section of the drivers heater channel.
Drivers inner front arch.
Pair of doors.
Spare wheel well.
Rear panel.
Not sure about the floor pans but i think they're pretty good.

That little lot should keep me going for a couple days lol!

Wow i finally got round to having a look at her today and she's as good as she was when i first bought her in 2004 ... No bad surprises.


Spent ages getting the interior out and remove the OG sound proffing from the floors.

The floor.. Slight bit of surface rust but nothing bad..

Rear inner arches and boot floor edges... Nothing to worry about..







Rear channel corners and lower inner arches... Both inner arches need slight localised repairs...

Channels aren't too bad both need the inner rear repair and the drivers side needs a slight repair in the center. And the passanger A-pillar bottom needs repair..













All in all from the inside she's still looking good and not a great deal of work needed..
