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.

1961 Ragtop Beetle rebuild
Here is months of footage, all rolled down into under 7 minutes, of me
rebuilding my 1961 Ragtop Beetle after an extensive restoration. It was off
the road around two years. I didn't film the whole restoration as that
could get quite boring but I have got all of the stages photographed which
you can find at www.volksworld.com.
I did pop a few photos in at the beginning of the video but stick with it
as the video goes pretty fast!

VW Bug - MR2 Create masonite template for cutting frame plates #45
Using the VW Bug foam frame templates I constructed a masonite template to
use as a guide for the plasma torch. I made this template .125 inches
smaller that the actual foam template because of the plasma cutters tip.
The template insures that I have an accurate cut on the framing steel which
will go around the Toyota MR2 3SGTE motor.

variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Preppin VW Bug chassis for front frame members #114
Now that I have the VW bug body removed from the platform, I have removed
the main frame rails to be able to line everything up on the front end. I
will start the frame build with the front nose piece. This piece will
contain the front suspension torque arm connections.
