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.





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.





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 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.





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.





VW Bug body completely down against the platform #105
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.

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!





Will have to remove the VW Bug front apron #99
I bought this VW bug project from a guy that was in mid restoral. Upon the first sheetmetal mock-up I found out that the front nose apron had been welded on 1/2 inch out of alignment. I now must remove (cut out) this existing piece and replace it later.
