That's exactly where I was going \:D/ I think I also may need a kcw 4" beam and some drop spindles one of these days.

I guess I didn't realize you stopped making narrowed bug beams a few years ago because I called yesterday all ready to bust out the credit card lol. Oh well, I have a 5" beam coming from Arkansas. More pictures soon. Smile

I received a 5" beam in the mail the other day that I ordered from a guy in Arkansas. His business is called fabshop104. Now if I can only find time to install it!

I've been driving the Bug around on short errands for a week or so with no issues other than I have no defrost. I have heat to my feet but not up to the windshield. The first step is to remove the torn up paper tubes down in the quarter panels.

Image

Then I decided to pull the hood of to make life easier.

Image

This is all the crap I pulled out of the passenger side.

Image

Cut off this upholstery nail on each side before jamming you hand in there otherwise it's like an old time raccoon trap.

Image
Image

Now I have to figure out how to get the paper ring left on the tube down below, Any thoughts?

Installed all the chrome trim, fixed the ebrake and put on some new wipers. Now it ready to get in the daily driver rotation. The narrowed beam and BRM's that I have will come later. I have a Motorcycle I want to work on so the bug got bumped down on the laboratory priority list.

I did find a SB12 headlight ring in my stash so I threw it on.

No pics but still driving it most every day. I really need some sound deadening mat and a stereo.
