I asked my neighbor (who is gone all winter) if I could put a bus in the garage. Denied !JWDIIParticipantOctober 23, 2018 at 8:55 amPost count: 374
I enjoyed watching this weekend! That guy in the Orange Car was running pretty good! Cold and kind of a head/cross wind! A lot of guys were spinning and getting loose on the big end. I hated seeing Ollie Fray park his pro stock sedan in the wall. Didn’t look like it was hurt too bad.JWDIIParticipantOctober 23, 2018 at 8:55 amPost count: 374
Have a safe productive day folks!John JonesKeymasterOctober 24, 2018 at 8:01 amPost count: 5888
John…. I looked at your door panels.. remind me what you wanted done?? 😎 Doug looked at them with me… looks like the cards are different… You want new cards and old material, and holes for handles??JWDIIParticipantOctober 24, 2018 at 8:37 amPost count: 374
JJ, Good morning! Yea, I think one card is bigger than the other also, but you are correct: New cards, old material , with holes for handles and clips ready to install on my doors if possible. Thanks for the update.
I would love to be driving this thing slammed on it’s arse sometime next year. I have been trying to leave my other projects alone and focus on this one. Bucket list item , own/drive a lowered split beetle. Hope to check that one off and then put my split back stock and put the narrowed beam from it on my oval if possible.
You folks all have a safe productive day! 🙂FranzKeymasterOctober 24, 2018 at 8:40 amPost count: 2983
Don’t lower your 48…its just fine the way it is.
You think the material on those door panels is original 1948? Looks like some newer tweed to me.JWDIIParticipantOctober 24, 2018 at 8:55 amPost count: 374

I have been back and forth with lowering / not lowering it Franz. I don’t think I have ever owned a beetle I haven’t lowered. I have the 16’s and Bi-plias tires that were on it and they are like new. Two of my wheels are riveted and two aren’t.
I know the material is not OG to the car. Previous owner did it in the late 70’s , early 80’s and it never made it back on the road. The material just matches the rest in the car. If it cant be saved, and cant be matched, I will send the rear panels and have the recovered to match the door cards and look nice with the seats.Mrs. MuhrParticipantOctober 24, 2018 at 9:30 amPost count: 32
