I am starting the build on my 1970 bug.

Here is what it looked like when I brought it home. Pretty stock with a built 1776.



Here is where I am at right now.



I will be adding more pics as I go.

Not sure if it will be considered a full blow out build but probably pretty close.

Build Plan. (I have 90% of the parts sitting in my Garage)

Front:
Woods top mount 4 over arms
Woods combo spindles
Building an 10 over big beam.
10" coilovers and Bypasses on the front.

Rear:
3x3's with 14" inch 2.5 reservoir shocks and 2.0 coilovers.

Motor:
Built 1776 for now. Want to convert to an ecotec in a couple years.

I have a set of beard seats and a fuel safe fuel cell that will be going in between there some how.

I got all of the sheet metal support cut out above the doors and windows. This is just my mock up tube so I could get the length and angle for the last bend hitting the firewall. Hope to have a good portion of the cage knocked out on Saturday.
