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.

German look 1303s with 2.4 litre engine.
This 1303s German look custom came in for a tune up. Open the engine lid and instead of finding the stock 1600tp, you'll find the very healthy and potent 2.4 litre type 4 Porsche engine. Various modifications make this a very quick, but safe, street car.
