Thank you guys, your builds here inspired me a lot!

It's time for detailing:

















Ignore the rubber fuel lines, braided hose with AN fittings are part of the winter project.

After 3 years, yesterday I finally drove it! Engine sounds good, brake and suspension feel ok, no oil leaks so I'm happy with it.

She's a beauty...
Definitely a huge motivation to get my little red bug back on the street again!

Just Beautiful...

A style of build user 'vujade' coined - "Resto German".
Subtle, understated, OG in the details...
Love it!

The ride height/stance is perfect.
Rake is for Cal-Lookers.

Sure it's temporary solution

I'm trying to keep the dash simple, so originally inteded to make a nice custom bracket for the rearview mirror and put these gauges there, similar to this:



I did the wiring too, but the wire harness seems to be too wide to make it invisible..at least need more time for that project. I wanted to drive the car ASAP and found a gauge holder in the garage that doesn't fit in the radio area. Again, I'm sure I will not put them there as I'm not a fan of the space shuttle style dashes. Will cover the hole with a c/f plate or similar and try to find a good place for the gauges. (Maybe under the dash?)

Regarding the stance the back is a tad lower than I wanted (hard to set the TB bars without the full interior). I'll see how it performs in city driving & on speed bumps than will raise a spline later if needed. But no rake at all.

I love the way it looks! As SteveC said, the color combo is excellent. Personally, I like the rear exactly as it sits. Unless it causes problems, I would probably bring the front down ever so slightly to match the rear.

Thanks! Exactly, but a proper wheel alignment should be done first. Negative camber in front should help fender clearence, so i guess it can go lower a bit.
