I adjust the same top and bottom. For a very small height adjustment you could adjust only one.

Re: Beam adjustment

See the stud sticking out of the adjuster? Think of that as connected to your trailing arms. Point it down, wheels go up. Point it up, wheels go down.

Don't worry about preload.

Logistics killed the deal on the Bahama car, so I gave the Lotus White car a chance... it seemed promising until I saw it has a bunch of holes punched in the dash ](*,)

Still looking...

Thing spindles are a factory raised spindle. Ghia spindles will lower it.

Re: 1965 Original Paint Beetle Wanted

I figured white might be up there with beige in regards to boring old people colors for you. Im biased as my first car was a Pearl White 65. But yeah, looks like a killer car. I don't have anything against pearl white (not like I do with beige!), but if it was sitting next to a Bahama blue car it w...

Re: 1965 Original Paint Beetle Wanted

That's a nice car for sure. But I'm leaning towards the beat up Bahama Blue car ](*,) I just love that color. Working on details now...

Re: 1965 Original Paint Beetle Wanted

Yeah, that looks like it would clean up REALLY well. It for sure does. It would be a lot less work to get running than the car in Eugene. $1200 vs $3000, totally worth the time and labor saved. Still waiting on more info though.... Last night a member here turned me on to this one. It's the furthes...

Re: 1965 Original Paint Beetle Wanted

Bad heater channels and title issues. Pass. Yeesh... yeah I know. It's super straight though, complete, the price is right, and it isn't too far away. It's got the look, and that dash is gorgeous. And considering I haven't found a single fucking thing even remotely close to what I'm after, this is ...

Re: 1965 Original Paint Beetle Wanted
