Fantastic job!

(I made a note to myself on the reflective tape for the interior door panel so it can be seen when opened. Nice touch!)

You have earned every right to be proud.

Where did you get your front spoiler? I have seen it around but can't find a source to buy. Please let me know.

Thanks for the link! Did you notice a difference in the air flow at higher speeds? I care a lot more about performance than look. Thanks again!

yes

It helps a lot for highway driving

Allthough if you are running extremely low you beat it up pretty bad

it is pretty tough for scrapes but it doesn't take sharp impacts to well

I love the last shot there, I've always been a fan of white on blue. Got any specs on the wheels?

Yeah I just bought those on Monday cause I have always wanted to have a white wheel with the Jazz Blue. I really like the fact that they are wider and super light. they are 15x8 with et20. I have 195/50/15's on right now but I am changing the fronts to a 165/45/15 so I can bring the front down a bit.

15" looks awesome! \They look kinda like compmotive wheels. Can you get 165/45r15 locally? I thought those were euro only sizes.... Smart car tires are another options.

I agree all the way, and yes, they look the dogs, still the best way to lower any car, especially a Beetle, is smaller wheels and tyres. funds permitting after the motor is finished for my upgraded build, it will be going down onto 13" wheels and kevlar hot rod tyres for circuit racing, weight saving and pan lowering at the same time...
