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.

How to lower a swing axle VW with DropPlates, similar to drop spindles part 2.wmv
Please see the latest and most comprehensive installation video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tev8wW4-TE&feature=c4-overview&list=UULSzBC ap4l4CLVEOrpwQzmA This video demonstrates the proper way to lower an air-cooled VW and shows how easy it can be to get your ride to drive smoothly even though the vehicle is lowered. You can do it the right way! It is part 2 in a 4-part series. The vehicle in focus is a swing-axle Volkswagen that has the short torsion bars, but soon the racing spring-plates (DropPlates and RaisePlates) will be available for all air-cooled models. My good customer Sean from Hawaii says that his ride is the best it has ever been. You can find this vehicle and my name mentioned in the center-spread of this the latest issue (March 2012) of Hot VWs. If you want to know what other people think about Atomwerk Drop Plates then pick up an issue and open it to the middle!

Finish priming the custom VW bug chassis #360.mpg
Finally paint. I can finally put paint to frame. This has been a long time coming. I hope I didn't forget anything. The primer is Eastwood's rust encapsulator to insure that the frame will not rust. The primer has been forced, as best I could, into all the cracks and crevices. I will now need to paint it with Eastwood's heavy duty chassis paint.

BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior, but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the 3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
