Germanlook/Rallylook Beetle
Well instead of making multiple threads about new additions to my car I have decided to make a ongoing build thread for it. Here I can consolidate my progress. My goal has always been to bring my Beetle up to more modern standards, and making it perform better. I have never had the goal of making my car track worthy nor "rally" worthy yet I love the look. This is my first car and has been my daily driver for the last 5 years. I have put countless hours of time into this car and it has been both my therapy and my obsession.

The newest addition (Christmas present to myself) would be the Kamei spoiler. ITS LOW!

And the Nardi wheel.

Looking good! Now lets see some photos of how you mounted it, you know...for archives sake.

I love that look :thumbup:

Make sure you secure the spoiler to the fenders though or the mouting tabs will break.

Wow didn't even think of that! Good advice!

Nice, I like the look.

I'm building a 74 1303 in the same spirit.

Looking very GL, have you tried it on the highway yet, the Kameis really make a difference.

Very nice. Watch those speed bumps and curbs. The Kamei is made of ABS plastic so it is forgiving to a point.

owdlvr December 29th 2009 14:12

Drat. This is making me think my '69 needs one.

I am actually thinking about supporting the front of the spoiler from the front similar to like this

You can buy the supports. I would attach it to the spoiler itself and the bottom of the bumper.

I'll try topost picks of my Kamei spoiler supports... They're a little more stealthy than the BMW ones in that pic... and don't require drilling holes in your fenders...

That would be much appreciated!

It involves bolting a plate to the bumper bracket bolt and one to the hole in the spoiler and getting a piece of rod and welding it to each plate. I can't find any pics right now, but if you use the right bumper bolt and position the plates in the right way the rod connecting them should clear the fender no problem!

Great pics! I like the BBS wheels too - very classy!

Finally put a 20mm adjustable whiteline swaybar on the front of the car. The handleing is really coming together. WAY more stable in the curves. Just waiting on my rear swaybar and then ill be golden!
