Update time!

Took Robbie to his first show since I've had him back today - CTTP. Over the last few weeks I've been trying to make him look presentable... so off to ebay I went and got a load of Satin Black rattle cans for £30 and a set of stripes....

It's not the best job in the world, but it's only temporary until I can afford a resrpay, but I'm happy enough with it. Lots of people today were trying to pick at it to see if it was a wrap at the show today Laughing


Really enjoyed being out and about in him again - and he behaved perfectly! You wouldn't be able to tell he'd had nearly 3yrs off!

Thanks all Very Happy

Got the exhaust fitted today - look great and sounds pretty good (for a diesel anyway). I've tried to capture it on a video but the noise of the engine drowns the exhaust out a bit - it sounds much better in real life... especially on start up!

Time for a pic over load. Gave Robbie and Herbie a bath today, so thought I'd get some nice pics of them together and some decent ones of Robbie.

Robbie Rocket - New Beetle Cup Car Replica - Page 9 650DSC_0001cv

This is what he looks like at full height front and rear:
Robbie Rocket - New Beetle Cup Car Replica - Page 9 650DSC_0024cv

Nose down:
Robbie Rocket - New Beetle Cup Car Replica - Page 9 650DSC_0041cv

Nose up:
Robbie Rocket - New Beetle Cup Car Replica - Page 9 650DSC_0043cv

I drive him at this height - 60psi front and 40psi rear. It's pretty conservative, but I don't plan on scraping everywhere... pointless being on air otherwise...

Been building a raised boot floor to give the compressor a bit more breathing room and to hide all the air gubbins.
