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 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.

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.





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.

I am slowly lowering the VW bug body down over the engine and chassis. I am using 2x4 blocks and all thread to align the body for the fine tuning of the body cuts. It looks like it wil fit fairly well.
