Hi, it's been a while since being on here. I originally bought the car from this forum but it's undergone quite a bit of work now
Full repaint
All new rubbers from ISP west
17 inch 5x130 BBS E50, 6x17 front 7.5x17 rears
Wilwood 2 pot front brakes
Type 1 eva resto front beam narrowed 4 inches with viair air ride set up.
1776 engine with twin 40s, 044 heads, 110 cam
As always there are lots of jobs still to do, I would love to have the interior retrimmed as it's currently got a standard rear seat and porsche tombstones up front.
Thanks for reading.

Looking cool ;)

Is the air ride just for the front? Reason I ask is the tank looks small. I'm looking to air ride just the front of my bug so don't want a large tank...or run completely without a tank...

Hi, yeah it's only a 1 gallon tank as I only raise at the front about 3 inches just to allow easy driving.

The compressor is 200psi, the shocks max out at 150psi so I have a 120 psi cut off in the system.

Thanks for the kind comments. Next on the list is to upgrade the ignition. I have picked up an MSD kit to have a play
