Josh's 60

Postby hitlersride » Mon Sep 28, 2009 5:33 am

I picked up a 1960 beetle from a friend of mine.
I have to do the floors and repaint it.
Lanner from VDub Engineering is building me a 4" narrowed beam
Going to stay basically stock, except it has to be slammed.

Last weekend I took the car apart and started the scraping and sanding.

Pics soon.
