So, im into custom "stuff" and I dont mean I bought this custom (insert thing here) I mean Im into "look what I made" Custom. I wanted to build a bike from almost scratch "thats not including a motor" when I started saving up the cash and collecting parts my family figured out what I was planing ^^ and freaked out on me...
after a couple moths of nagging. my dad started pitching the idea of a VW "it being so simple I would have no problem doing the work my self". I never thought I would get into making a custom car...way to much work, but a VW sounded prety "easy" well easyer Razz
so I bit. Now I have a "71 Supper Beetle/ Baja" I think? lol. I picked it up on CregsList for $500 from a extremly cool guy living with his construction crew in a trailer park :/
his origial asking price was $1,800...after spending the day shooting the shit and hanging out with my dad and me his budies talked the price down.

So now I have somthing to make a cool everyday driver out of!
<the picture that was on Crags List Surprised



its sitting at my mechanic cus well Im not that car savvy. Oh did I mention its the first ever manual car I have owned lol

So Im allready off to a "Bad" start -_- trying to find cool rims for Air Cooled VW's is...well a compleet pain. I didnt want to pay for "spacers" with a difrent bolt patern or have custom ones made,
so I saw these and thought badass im done looking,

so I thought I found them on JC Whitney and ordered the sizes I wanted...15x6 for the front and 15x8 for the rear,
So I F'ed up these are not the rims I was looking for but since I spent $300 plus shiping on em Ill have to make due. And I must not know how sizes work for rims, cus these are biger then I thought they would be when measured ther 15x7 and 15x9 so all well >.<

looked for Flat black paint I could use on the rims...closest thing I could find was
I like the finsh so far, Ill have to see how it holds up once there on the car.


I can tell this is going to end up looking more like wich is not the look I was going for -_- guess Ill just have to keep a lookout and hope to find the rims I like later.

rims are measured to the inside of the bead for width. not the outside of the lip.

Nice score. Tire size will depend on what size engine and trans you have. A stock 1600 will have a hard time spinning big tires.
