57 deluxe bug

Postby JRW » Fri Oct 09, 2015 6:18 pm

i bought this bug back in 1998 . i then took it apart ,blasted and painted the irs pan and suspention in imron . i then got busy with other projects. a few years later the body got started then sat for a few years. around 2007 it was painted finally and mated with the pan then put away again,to busy with other projects, i did build small parts over all those years . then 2014 came and i decided to go at the car again removed pan started welding and updating a few things . thanks to josh and jonny being around i got back into the car i will try to update this with pictures when i figure it out

Cause it was started in late 90's and that's what all the cool kids did back then :^o Jrod WAS hardcore in the water pumper scene, ya know things that handle just a little better than a S/A :-#
