we have the back dropped now, much easier for me to wash the roof. Brakes are next on the list.

Awesome job man!

My first bug was a dropped 59 also. but it was the early 80s so paint choices are questionable (see pic below).

I still drive a slammed bug, just not the same one.

Love your car so far bro!
Keep on going!

Haven't posted in a while but the body ended up in its first prime last winter. We didn't work on it much during the summer but will be back on it soon.
