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.

Build custom tail lights for VW bug #475
I have installed all of the lighting on the front of the VW bug and now I have to complete the rear. I am having to build some custom tail lights. It took a while to figure it out, but I think I got it.

Monster Beetle
Do Monster Beetles float? Or this bug roll over?

Position all VW Bug front sheet metal #111
This VW bug body, no doubt, took a lick sometime in it's life. I guess thats why the front apron had already been replaced (incorrectly positioned). I had to remove the other front apron and am now trying to reposition the new one as well as the front fenders. I am doing this all at the same time to try and get the front end lined up exactly. This fitting is mainly for front wheel positioning.
