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 - 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.

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!

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
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.

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.
