Creigs/Toms/JJs/DLCs Vert

Postby dirie1 » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:13 pm

So I have been a little busy lately with projects and travelling a lot for work. Over the summer a vert came available for me (which I really, really didnt need another project) so I decided to get it. Decided that the wife needed a new vert so I got this for her Smile Seriously I did :-#
This car was brought to KCW by Tom Unke for a quickie resto and he decided that he realy wanted a bus. After a night with a few drinks at the house (maybe too many drinks) Tom and I made the deal. Aince getting this beetle I got a 6" bean (thanks Jones), gave the brakes a little love and slammed it (thanks Franz for the help) all in a weekends work =D>

I have these rims for my other car and thought I would put them on this one for the time being. I have some new shoes for it already but just need to figure out some brakes before installing them.

I plan on raising it a little as I got high centered coming into my driveway the other day =D> But it does look good for pix

What do you do with 365 used rubbers? Make a tire and call it a Good Year.

Congrats on the cool car =D> I love beetle convertibles. I think a badass vert would be the only car i would let my bus go of to get.
