The car has been sprayed already....too slow on this one.
Will have to see what I can do. A few have suggested to just glue it on.

The old girl is finally home. Now my work starts and the first hurdle has almost let me to leave the beetle at the painters.
Got the gearbox and front beam in on Friday to get it rolling and ready to roll out onto the trailer on Saturday.

The rear tires are right up against the springplate and unable to move. Went down to the local automotive store to get some spacers and they dont clear the centre of the drum.
Im guessing I just need some spacers, or would the long axle tubes be a better bet ?

So in order to get it rolling I had to put the front wheels on the back and vice versa
Fronts are 165 and rear 195.

The color on it is straight from the gun, once Ive assembled it and done all my work it needs to go back for a 3000grit sand and polish and a fixer upper of all the scratches thats yet to come.

Makes me jealous

Did you had it sprayed with clear cote and what brand of paint was used?

What front brake disc conversion did you install? Are you keeping it drums in the rear?
