Hi everyone. After hours upon hours of going through this forum, I have never thought to put my ride on here until now. So here she is on a wet morning -







I've got loads of plans and no money. I'm just about there with the stock engine and major welding repairs (which there wasnt many of). I would love to have it resprayed in white, lowered a bit more (only 2" on the front at the mo) and some new wheels. Also maybe some blade bumpers. I could carry on....

Nice to see another early super beetle. :)

I've also got a '71 1302.

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't swap the europas for blades.

Cheers guys. Yeah i'm waying up the bumper options.

I think most of it is original paint. I know the front wings have been re-done (badly). And I've done a little touching up here and there. Its not too shabby and the underneith is rock solid. Amazing floor pan for year.

The deep dish wheels look great.

Are they the 7" wide ones that Machine 7 sell?

:)

7's would look awesome! Those must be low offset 5.5's then as they look really wide in those photos!

The turquoise is nice too as its a bit different from the norm. I take it you are going to respray it in the original white?

I change my mind every month with the colour. But at the moment I'm thinking original white. It's just such a pain in the arse to keep clean! I need a garage. The wheel colour came out a bit brighter than I hoped but I'm getting used to it.

This is my other respray favourite -
