Kev's 64 Beige bitch

Post by Kev on Wed Feb 09 2011, 17:21

Here it is when I first bought it





Used it as my daily in all weathers





And I bought some new wheels lenso bsx 16"x7.5





Wich led to tyre rubbin issues on front so had to raise it wich wasn't good so I bought a 6" narrow slamwerks beam to tuck the wheels just a bit
Rollin back from a show day after fitting no time to clean it



After a clean



Calendar pic



Then last december for some reason I drove into a curb





Now me and Liam have just started repairing it
Chopping out the bent metal





Now looks like this

Quality, love it.

Avoid those kerbs in future though, they have a tendency to leap out at you...

Wow haven't updated this in a while. This saturday started a big push to get the beetle back on the road and we started with a very important job of getting it bit lower to the floor with the help of these



And with a lot of help from the boys nothing is ever easy we ended up with this



Just needs to come down the front a little
Next is to sort out the engine, sorry Daz for having your engine so long.

No problems dude. As usual though the beige bitch lived up to its name it wasnt as easy as bolting the plates on! That picture doesnt do it justice the best either you really have to see it in the flesh it looks soooo cool

I drove the bitch down the workshop today and it drives really well. Didnt try and drive it IN the workshop though haha! Heres some pics as kevs only posted one in its new slammed guise! A few very small jobs to be done oh and the most important job of bringing the front down a bit!
