67 beetle ; name unknown

Post by loves trim on Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:16 pm

Well i finally started on it. As my granddad would say, im off to tear up a another perfectly good car. Its a fairly straight 67 with very little rust. The only real issue is it was hit in the passenger side and someone did a half assed repair on the heater channel. I narrowed the beam 4", added avis adjusters. 2.75 spring plates and one click in the back.






Oh yea, i put some air on the front too.

I'm jealous of the air... Looks good man. I like how the rear is sitting.

Gotta come up with a name- since it's an Outlaw style, you could call it Jesse James

Thanks, I was iffy before i got the wheels on the car but i like them. Going to go flat tan on the whole car with black smooth blade bumpers.

Im going with this on the interior. Its a distressed basket weave and im going to paint some of the metal in the interior white. Pete's column and seat frames are white and im diggin that so im going to steal his idea. Im also going do some tooled leather and hammered brass on and in the car.

Kinda like this, its my old sporty seat.

With the seats and tan color I think you should call it Pale Rider.

Yea, i like that car just not sold on the wheel color. I wasn't planning on doing hard lines but i couldn't find any decent line close by so i went to ace hardware.
