I think you lower the front with lowering struts or something of that nature. Also who cares if it is a super fat chick. They need love too. What kind of vents you looking for?

Those wheels look like some of those BBS knockoffs that Western was making a while back. As for lowering, check out Topline's web site, I have lowered several supers, both late models and some of the flat windshield supers (71-72) with Topline's components. My 71 has a full Front suspension from them. I am pretty sure I have some of those vents around here somewhere too.

I bought a whole top line kit for my 74. I actually switched to the earlier 71-72 suspension. I prefer the thick cast iron control arms to the thin stamped steel arms. Topline stuff is very good quality. On my 72 the PO just put lowering springs. All it did was cause the suspension to bottom out on every bump since now it only has like 2 inches of suspension travel :/

sometime this week end ill be lowering the front of my super. ill be posting pics of the how to in my build thread here http://forum.georgiadubs.com/t9371-andrea-my-bagged-and-body-dropped-71-super-beetle even tho i wont be using coil springs itll be the same process. you just reuse the stock springs. and you may need smaller then stock tires. youll need to upgrade the sway bar to keep the caster and everything correct. but youd be looking at 3 inches or so of drop.
