couldn't help but notice that you posted a pic of the wheels with new tires, but didn't bother to post a pic of them on the car
just because it's a bad idea, doesn't mean it wont be a good time
Don't run out of patience!
Besides... Cookie Cutters on a Bug are far from being a spectacular sight... :D

May 2008

After some trail and error I ended up with this wheel spacer setup:

Front 10mm...

Rear 15mm...

August 2008

Here is a Porsche 911 5.5" steel spare wheel with a 165/80 R15 tire.
Well... It fitted the spare wheel well not so well... :D

The fit was super tight and it was a pain to get the spare wheel out - even with some deflating...
Furthermore the 5.5" rim protruded the spare wheel well - however the trunk liner concealed that drawback.

Anyway - that rim/tire combo was to large for the stock wheel well.
I left it at that for the time being and took care of the issue later.

Already talked about the eye-catching front oil cooler earlier in this thread.
For a more unobtrusive look of the Bug's front end a new slim oil cooler was mounted below the front apron.

damn, that is a clean stereo install!
still don't get the whole front oil cooler thing

Five lug conversion, brake and suspension update done...

Rear end and engine bay...
Slowly but surely I started to grow tired of this sight after almost 20 years.

Back in '89 I was thrilled about that exhaust setup...
In the meantime I prefer a more stock-oriented appearance.

But that would require some serious modifications of the rear apron.
Another project in the offing...
finally some pic's with the wheels on. looked good. could stand to be lowered a bit up front, but whatever, looked good
