Okay, its a work in progress. From this:



To this so far:






Seats are from a Chevy Cavalier and have been lifted 5". According to Daryll, this made the seat about 2" above a normal VW seat. The combination of the 3" Bugzylla custom body lift and the lifted Cavalier seats gave me a bunch of leg room. I'm 6'1" and have long legs. I had to scoot my seat FORWARD to engage the clutch!



The little 1385cc engine combined with the 4.37 IRS transaxle work great with the 225/70r15 tires. The sunroof will probably get welded shut and the body work will be coming soon. So far, I had to track down fuel smell that was strong. I am keeping my eye on a few other little items as well. I am pleased. Need to get some heat for it! These mornings are getting chilly!

I wasn't so sure about the wheel choice until I saw them on the car, they look really good. You usually see them painted silver, and they look totally different. Cant wait to see the car painted. Cool

I picked up a license plate light and wired it up. I removed the front bumper. My friend is a fabricator and may end up making me some tube bumpers and nerf bars.

I put a shifter extension on. Feels better now because I don't have to lean forward to shift. The big thing I am excited about is that I found a metal sunroof crank handle. I wasn't sure the sunroof would work, BUT IT DOES!

The bug needs to go back for some adjustments tomorrow. I hope to get everything back in the middle of the week so I can break it in before my temp registration expires on 02-06-11.

The next step is paint. Soon!!!!!!!!!

Since my last post, "Hans the stinkbug" as my kids know it, has a new ring job, new valve job, passed emissions, re-timed, sunroof tubes repaired, doors adjusted, and dash pad removed.

I picked up new glass rubber, a degree pulley, quickshift kit, fender welting and................................ today I bought the UPOL Raptor tintable bedliner kit! I tried to get L319, which is the olive color VW used on their military cars in the 60-70's, but ADCO couldn't find it. They even called someone and couldn't cross reference it. No biggie, I just had them mix up some regular olive drab as tint. I also had a can of spray paint in the same color made so I can paint my hinges and hood springs.

I hope to prep the car this week, and shoot it this weekend!

Oh ya, my old license plate finally came in the mail. Hans is sporting the plate 8NOHIPI.

Looking good. Installing a stock exhaust back on would get you some more ground clearance and let you do a full length skid plate from the transaxle to the bumper.

His exhaust looks low because of the 3" body lift. It might gain a small amount with stock exhaust, but not much.

I used the UPOL Raptor tintable UV protected bedliner kit with olive drab tint. I only had one kit (1 gal) and found that I need to buy a second kit for better coverage. I was able to coat the exterior with one heavy coat and one light coat. The same with the dash, interior doors and jambs/pillars. The second kit I want to buy will allow me to put another heavy coat on the exterior and to coat the trunk and engine compartment. I am pleased so far. Here is a quick picture:

A few more. The dark spots on the doors are from when I tried to cover some of the thin spots with a spray can I had made up with the same paint material that was used for the tint. It will be covered with the next round of bedliner.

I picked up a rear seat and added 3 seatbelts to the back so the whole family can go for a ride. I had pinging issues but may have solved them by jumping from a .0120 main jet to a .0127. I am going to have dirt junkie reindex the rear and raise the front with adjusters in the next few weeks.

Its no show car, but I like it! It will be parked in the spectator's parking lot of the bug-a-rama this Sunday.

I found a new German original style exhaust at the Bugarama for $40. Score! Picked up a set of adjusters for Dirtjunkie to install and some door handles with keys. I put the exhaust on and it appears to be much higher than the old header and quietpack. I hope to have it lifted soon and then paint another coat of bedliner on it by the end of April. Oh ya, the pinging is now gone.
