I am still unsure about lowering it. Its so nice and "stock" I hate to mess with it too much. I do like the drop spindles up front, it drops it just enough I think, and you can always go back to the OG spindles. Wish the drop spindles were a little cheaper! I pulled this from the SAMBA. Only 2.5 drop spindles installed. I think this looks good. Not too low....

Sidenote: I found some cheap vw mud flaps (25 for the pair) Have to figure out how/where to mount since the 70 model doesnt have the bolts to mount like later models. Got them on ebay and I think he had plenty more.

Yep, those are the flaps. The guy was selling them last week for 45/pair plus 10. Glad I waited! He dropped the price 20 bucks.
I have looked on Ratwell http://www.ratwell.com/technical/Mudflaps.html from what I can tell, it looks nothing like that under my 70. I dont think they were a factory option until 72, so I will have to figure something out.

Scott I would like those plans if you dont mind....

Well shit. They aren't there anymore. They were on the Ratwell site under "Jamie River's mudflap bracket plans" but the link is dead. Maybe it is temporary.

No problem. I have seen them on there a while back, but I didnt save it since I had no flaps! Now it seems to be gone? O well. Thanks anyway.

I got my flaps in over the weekend. They look pretty good after I cleaned them up. A small piece of the vw logo had chipped off, but other than that perfect. Now just have to decide how to hang em.

Did you get yours Scott?

Just got them and they are awesome. I'll let you know what I figure out about the mounts. Right now I could bolt the on as is. You can attach them to the inner well extension, just where it sticks below the battery tray but it puts them high up. Here are the flaps. 1/2" thick and 2.5 lbs a piece.




This is the look I want.

Cool.
I have the cloud white top & bumpers on my bus, so the "off white / yellowed" vw logo matches great! I think I am going to mount them like you mentioned, on the wheel well extension. Im not out driving thru the mud or anything...they are just for show!

Alright Rich, I picked up the steel today for around 20 bucks. I'll document the process following that plan and post it later.

Finally got my rear jail bars from BusDepot.





Also found some old stuff for the back. Bought the cooler from Brad at Y U Buggin. Then came across some old cola bottles at Melissa's Grandps's house over the Fourth of July weekend in Blue Ridge.
