I know a bunch of guys on a replica speedster forum that would kill for a set of wheels like yours.
Beautiful!

I've just about to start my dual 40 Weber install on my stock 1600 dual port engine when I noticed these two metal buttons on the intake port.

Obviously, they will have to be removed to install the ...

Why are these better than the stock wheels? It's not like you'll be able to really see the holes when the wheel is mounted, they're steel (heavy) , and they're only 5" wide, which is the same as ...

The chances are very slight, as they're made for the Porsche replica crowd, who use (mostly) a wide 5 or Porsche 5 bolt wheel pattern.

I surprised a few other drivers with my old 1970 single cab.

It had a modified 2.7 Porsche engine and 901 gearbox. Very Happy

Even though it never ran properly (stock fuel injection combined with a ...

I just mounted a set of fog lights in my 74 Thing. Not a Beetle, but basically the same process.

I installed a small fuse box in the trunk and ran a power wire from the battery. I installed a fus ...

Hopefully, I'll be able to reuse the old s ...

I like the Konis because they're adjustable.

I had a set on my Porsche 356 replica. I set the rears on 3/4 hard, because of the extra weight of the engine, and the fronts on 1/4 hard, because ther ...

I'd love to buy a set for my VW Thing.

Are they EMPI disc brakes?

If so, companies like Cip1 sell rotors in a Chevy bolt pattern that will fit.

When you buy the new line you will have to bend it to the correct shape. Save the old line and use it as a te ...

KYB is a decent shock. I'd recommend gas in the rear and oil in the front.

Gas shock for the extra weight in the rear and oil shock for the light front end.
