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.





VW Bug MR2 The 3SGTE motor hanging free on motor mounts #87
The Toyota 3SGTE motor is now fully supported by the new motor mounts. The motor mounts are just tacked in place right now, but I will be removing the plate frames once again to finish all the welding.

Widen VW bug fenders Steel panels complete #464
After a lot more work, I have finally completed the widening of the VW bug steel fenders. I now must get the hood (big job) and the rear deck lid to fit and get them ready for body filler. The sheet metal is close to be finished.





VW Bug - Toyota MR2 drivetrain alignment and support #36
In this video you have to look for the changes. The engine is tilted back at the correct angle for the Toyota MR2 3SGTE engine. I also have blocks supporting the engine from below (no weight on the chains of the shop crane). I still need to install the rear cross-member to get everything exactly where it needs to be in the VW Bug rear end.





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.





Create VW Bug front lower control arm mounts 2 #123
The VW bug needs lower front control arm mounts. I am building these from 3.5x3.5x3/16" box tubing. After cutting each mount out, I need to bend the tabs over to create the actual mount points. I am using a small piece of the 3x3 inch tubing for leverage. Once clamped in the vise, I just need to add a little muscle to bend them over.





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!

Repair VW bug front hood VW bonnet #465
Now the VW bug fenders widened, I can focus on the hood. This is the original hood from the car and I am trying to keep it. It has been tricky to get new metal to bond to old metal, but I kept working on it till I got it. It's now ready for refit and filler.

VW Bug Toyota MR2 Drill out & bolt on rear frame members #48
I have now drilled out and bolted on the VW Bug rear frame members. Both frame pieces have been bolted on with grade 8 hardware and are backed up with .25 inch plates which fit inside the main frame rails. The frame will be beefed up with another plate in order to handle the power from the Toyota MR2 3SGTE motor.





Rework fuel system Install in tank fuel pump #463
I was having trouble with my fuel pump it couldn't keep up with the turbo. I am replacing the pump with an in-tank Aeromotive 90 PSI unit. Summit Racing returned one pump for the other. I have created a stainless steel fuel pump hanger to get the pump to the bottom of the tank. It all seems to work fine, so back to the fenders.
