I just got this thing off of one of our members. At the moment, I am just getting it to DD status for as little as possible.

I love this car, I had really wanted to buy it but the financial stars weren't aligned at the time. Glad it went to you!

Yeah, I just have 2 other VW projects, 2 Jeep projects, and at the time was looking for my Audi. I'll own a air cooled at some point for sure though! :-)

Just dropped the beam. It looks great other than than it broke and had to be welded and it did not fit into the frame head right. Hopefully I can get the new beam built this weekend.

Almost done with my new front beam. I used the extra beam that came with the car as a base. 4" narrowed, shock towers cut and patched.

Nice Bartek, so with that narrow beam, what tire and wheel combo are you going to run?
