Hi, Here is some pictures of my 59 my dad and I are starting on. I am only 10 so we have lots of time to build before I can drive it. We are the third owner, it came from Ucluelet. Thanks for looking.

We are working on the body first, I stripped the roof and my dad primed it with epoxy for now. We have welded a few patch panels in and some new deck lid hinges. It runs but no brakes. Hopefully we will drive it next year in primer. My dad has to lower everything we own so I guess my bug will be a low one. Here is a few pictures of the roof and our suburban (I know it is not a v.w. but it is cool).

I recognize that Suburban. Is your Dad Rob? If so tell him I said Hi and kudos for getting you started with such a cool project and yes I know it'll be LOW. You'll love it!

Thanks for all the kind support. We are going to replace the stuck throttle cable this weekend and maybe drive it around the yard. The e-brake still works. Very Happy

we got around to putting in the seats this weekend. Of course they will be coming back out during the build but we could not wait to see how they looked in the car.

We got my bug back in the garage and started to work on the suspension. I got a new beam for my birthday, we narrowed the leafs yesterday. We will post some more picks when we get it back on the ground.

We got the beam in, no steering yet as we have to narrow the tie rods but we really wanted to see how it looked on the ground.We think it looks much better. How can I rotate my pictures?
