VW bug Frame recap So far #162

Hurray, the VW bug's lower frame is complete as far as I can get it for now. I will still need to remove the frame and flip it around a bit to get to all the welds. Next up, compression of the struts to determine ride height and strut top location. So far so good.

Remove all the wooden jigs and see the VW roll #231.mpg
I have reached a big mile-stone in my build. The entire engine and chassis is up on it's own and rolls very nicely. I have done a lot of jumping up and down on the front and rear suspension and it seems to perform great. I will install the steering rack next and then remove the frame from everything else to finish the welding.

After removing the excess steel from the VW bug body, I can now lower it completely down on top of the Toyota MR2 3SGTE engine and chassis. The body fits fairly well for the first fitting.

1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past, I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones you'll see in the BugMe videos. Check out my blog: http://www.vwblvd.com Sawhorse Information: http://www.vwblvd.com/?p=45 Paint Color: 2006 Toyota Scion TC color. "Hypnotic Teal Mica" Paint Code: 8U3 Paint Brand: Dupont

Using the Torque-Meister on '74 VW bug - left rear axle nut
My First Time using this tool... I'm removing the left rear axle nut on my '74 VW bug with the "torque- multiplier" tool. It was quite a momentous occasion when you consider the many other unsuccessful methods I attempted. I love this tool. EMPI sells this one, call it the Torque Mulitiplier tool. It turns 1 lb. into 9 lbs. of torque. So, for the recommended 217 foot pounds (or more) for the rear axle nut, that means you give it about 25 foot pounds.
