I’m with you Zach. Tiny bit of lowering, near stock height, and nice wheels. Go with your first instinct .Critter1ParticipantNovember 23, 2017 at 9:58 amPost count: 234
Disc’s all around, 2″ beam, dropped psindles, detailed fuch’s.. NOT slammed… NOT wearing out axles and shit, Midly lowered with the look.
This is perfect. It will handle better than stock, look way better than stock. Mild is the way to go. Nothing extreme. You’ll love it and drive it everywhere!
Mild engine? 1776 with a single 40 Weber in the middle. BINGO!Ragtop RonParticipantNovember 23, 2017 at 10:50 amPost count: 380

Hell yea it’s a clean bug. But they all need love. Can’t wait to see it kruisen ?FranzParticipantNovember 28, 2017 at 9:10 amPost count: 5393
Gonna be a great little car. Detailed fuchs, painted Porsche crests, dropped spindles, 2″ narrowed beam.
How about tire size?? Traditional cal-look would run something like 145 on the front and 195/70 on the rear. That would be a raked look, like drag car style. Lower in the front. We can set the ride height anywhere from 1″ to 4″ with that look.
Remember Drew’s “blackie” It had 195/65/15 tires all around on a slight lowering job…it had more of a level Porsche road race look.John JonesModeratorNovember 28, 2017 at 10:41 amPost count: 12208
Zack mentioned to me he liked the raked cal look look…. As far as tires… 145’s up front.. and There are 4 brand new 165’s on the herbie beetle.. Maybe we can just run them.. and then he has an extra set of rears too… If we hate the look.. we can change it… 😉
Can’t wait to see ol Zack cruise down kimball in his 66!
😉 😉 😉 I think we should order a stock interior from WW too… 😀 😀 😀ZackKeymasterNovember 28, 2017 at 12:15 pmPost count: 217
Every thing sounds good, detailed Fuchs stock interior, I like the way your bug sits Franz… But I don’t want to go quite that low 🙄unkParticipantNovember 28, 2017 at 12:41 pmPost count: 396

I drove Franz’s bug last time I was out there and hit the beam on a street valve cover. Almost broke my teeth on the steering wheel. That thing is LOW. Good call not going that low…..but it does look cool.
