I was asked to post my progress on my bug , this is my 67 bug , i bought it years ago for 2500$ it was 3 different colors , didnt run , once i did get it to run the tranny was popin outa 4th and the motor didnt run that great , at the time i knew nothing about automotive , i rebuilt the motor , put in a new tranny i pulled from another car , striped the bug welded all the trim holes ( hadnt welded since i was like 13 ) im 38 now , painted the bug won many trophys and then kinda let it sit for too long.

Since then i have been a welder for a few years and am now a heavy diesel mechanic and once again i have the itch to tinker , i also have a 82 s10 v8 10s in a quarter so ive come a little way lol , so here goes again time to strip it and redo it , it will take some time the way money is in the world today and im also restoreing a 64 grand prix along side this so i have a full plate.

I took it from complete to this in about 5hrs

Ok i put a link to a photo album with the pictures hope this helps

My Project

Strange how sitting they deterioate faster thasn when in use! It looks like you will be busy this fall. Any pictures of it when it was in its prime? You super size pics are killing my old PC your photo hosting site should have a box to resize them for forums.

WOW, was it sitting outside?
Gotta agree with perrib, the super sized photos are great when showing a specific area but to see the over all shot, they're too big for pc viewing. I have a fairly new laptop with a large screen and still have to scroll around.
Good luck with the project and keep us posted, pic's included. Very Happy
