Hello I have had my beetle for a few years now it was my first car when I was 18 I am now 20 and I'm geting ready to give it a proper restoration I'm not going to be building no show car it's for my self I'm planning on a low rat look on standard wheels I have just been getting a few bits done while I have been looking for a garage to rent. First of I have narrowed the front beam by 2 inches and started a bit of work on the inside
