Re: Lucy 64 beetle

I found out that I had a bent beam. #-o Luckily, KCW had a core in the pile I was able to substitute. I cut right behind the shock towers to get a 4" narrowed beam. I decided on a single adjuster (the bottom adjuster on a low car gets damaged). I pre-set the lower tube for slammed, I know from ...

Re: Lucy 64 beetle

22 7/8" overall on the 125 firestone's...If you're buying new tires and want something local, go to walmart and get the 145/65 or 155/60 continetials.

Here they are on the walmart store They usually have them in stock.

Re: 54 Camping Box

I spent half of the day disassembling and scraping the ancient grease ball. http://www.kustomcoachwerks.com/gallery3/var/albums/Type-2/KBs-54-BD-Camping-Box/transaxle%20%281%29.JPG?m...
