after i read on someone's blog that i don't regularly update my blog i decided to prove the contrary and share some pics of what's currently in da works. (hope you like it)last week i started polishing my set of fuchs i purchased a couple of weeks ago.they are all 4 15*6 and the inserts will be painted matt black like they did in the factory. I hope i can get them painted next week and get some tires wrapped around. Tires will be the same as i have on the steelies 145 and 195/70, hope this gives me the stance i would like to have. let me know what cha think of them.
allright, some things i still need to do before the body can be placed in position : -braided steel brake lines, bleed the brakes, adjust the upper left king pin, mount engine, connect the handbrake, find a correct tie rod for a 59 beetle( the ones in the shops all seem to be wrong, the conus is different and i can't find a correct new one) and that's about it.
i finally got around to paint my wheels (ral 7005), these will be shod with a set of 195/70 goodyears and a pair of firestone f560's in 145r15.The chassis received a pair of new floorplates, new paint, new cables, new link-pins, new dropped spindles, had the drums put on a lathe,new dual circuit master brake cilinder, braided steel brake lines,....
because i don't have the time to work on my bug, i spend to much time on the internet looking for interesting deals, last week i found a set of 356 wheels with in the front 2 good michelin 135 ZX tires on it, I could'nt resist so i bought mysef these.They will recieve a sandblast and powdercoatjob (original porsche colour, if anyone has the code for that) and a set of new tires for the rear.
Last weekend i bought this 1968 vw beetle. It features a 1500cc 44hp engine, long gearbox, disc brakes, nice seats and headliner, he only has 41000km's on the counter. It has been standing in a barn for about 15 years. He has been in traffic untill 1984. There is a possibility that i will sell this beetle( complete or in parts) to invest in my other bug(59).People that are interested in some parts can always drop me a mail. You won't find then any better than this one. Never welded, fully original, comes with papers,....The only welding that has to happen are the rear bumper mounts that have a couple of miniature holes in them.
