hi guys. Heres my 66, How it started to how it is now

Bought it when I was 16 for my first car, didn't want anything other than a 66 or a bug. So happy with it!

How she looked when I got her

Image

Interior, pretty much the same. Not changed much.

Image

Image

Did this on photoshop , this was the initial Idea, before I even did anything to it.

Image

This was how I drove it most of the first year. maybe a little higher on suspension

Image

New flash trim.

Image

Image

She got her old shoes on, from the first picture. These are one year only 1966 beetle wheels so I though she should have them on! Wear them with pride!

Larger front tyres onthe front too, adjusted down on the front kit to compensate for the height change.

Getting spacers for the back to chuck the wheels out. Then they will get bigger tyres on them too.

So this is how she is currently

wow that's so beautiful.. no plans for repaint?


Difficult decision, I don't want to paint it. But it needs new doors or repaired. Either way it'l end up needing a spot of paint there.

Thanks :) Yeh I am really happy with these wheels, I think it makes it look a little odd, a sloper with slotted wheels isn't common. :insanity


Thankyou :)


On way to club local club meet tonight
