I wish I had any garage at all. I've been taking over my buddy's garage with the bug lately.

Like the title says, i want to see some of your past and present projects (please dont post ''future projects" i want to see and read about what you've done to them! (also because I'm bored, and we need more activity on this site! :dance: )

here are a few of mine-

86 Porsche 944.... Automatic  :doh:

I bought this thing after a car accident (i couldn't drive a stick for a while... word of advice, never buy a 1980's automatic Porsche) Dont get me wrong, i loved this car, and i want another, i just hated that transmission!

89 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.6 (First car)

i loved that car so much that i have owned 3 more, all the same damn color!

My favorite car i have ever owned EVER (also the first car i ever bought for myself) 1965 Mustang matching numbers car

Unfortunately i got hit head on by a late model Mustang of the same color (this is the wreck i was referring to above-)

Well those where a few of mine, lets see some of yours

So here are the events of the past two days on the beetle. (I should preface this with saying that the previous owner really messed up the wiring on this thing)

So i went to pep boys to get a new air filter yesterday.... I go to leave, turn the key and nothing.... no lights, no radio, NOTHING. so I start thinking that my battery died some how in the last 5 min, untill I see smoke billowing out of the engine bay.

Turns out that a poorly spliced wire shorted to the block, and all of the wires in the engine bay melted to the point of ALMOST bursting into flames. So I rewire the motor in the parking lot, and drive home with no brake lights (those wires melted too)

I got up early today and re did the whole back end of the wire harness. got it running good and not on fire! Drove over to my buddy Dan's house and lowered the front about an 1 1/2''

Started driving home and the transmission COMPLETELY crapped out on me. I have a new trans being delivered as i type right now, so i hope to have it back on the road my monday.

anyway, a couple of before and after shots-

lol the wheels came with the car. powder coated safety orange! they are actually BRIGHTER than construction cones haha.  I personally LOVE the rear wheels, they are 12'' wide and wrapped in Kumo's! (the wheels are pretty much worth what i paid for the whole car!

I am looking to do something a little different with it, as this is pretty much what it looked like when i got it. I cleaned it up and did alot of maintenance;

new clutch, short sifter, carb, starter, fuel pump, dist cap, plugs and wires oh, and rear adjustable coil overs
when i got it there was NO rear suspension,  and it was only running on two cyl. she is now my daily driver. runs great, starts every time, and rides smooth thanks to the coil overs.
I plan on taking a few shots with my good camera but its a 35mm so it might take me a while to get them up...... unless someone wants to do a photo shoot with me lol

She'll be getting some fenders soon, (as soon as i can find everything i need for a reasonable price) and I plan on dropping it a bit more in the front to give it a nice rake. because its a Super Beetle, i cant really slam it with out major mods and major $$$.
