Ok, thanks so much guys. I'm Ok and all, well O'Bugga took a little hit he's damaged it is worse than it looks. But the repairs that I made today in a hurry look pretty good. It will need an apron, Spare tire well and the sides. From this morning till now I feel lots better about the situation. Things happen for a reason we just have to figure out why and move on.

Like I said I've made some repairs, turns out it is mostly cosmetic. Based on the impact, which felt like I was about two feet off the ground, I was worried about the suspension. I took my time and went over every weld and joint. I drove it and the wheel is still in the same spot. That's a good thing!! It took longer to clean out all those crevices that a Bug has on the pan. Deer flesh/meat has a smell to it!

Here are some pics.....






I took a strap and hooked to the Tee bar and another car a jerked the bumper mount out. We pulled the car about 4 feet in the process. It pulled the bracket close to where it should be. I'll go back and work on getting it straighter. I'm happy with it considering.

Wow! If you had a bumper on there, you wouldn't even notice it! Looks good man (even though I know it's only a temp fix). You still going to roll it to BAP?

You betcha ass I am! I'm driving it to work in the mornin also. I'm getting a hi-beam relay at BAP so I can turn my driving lights up and wash more of the road with them. Then when a car comes I can go back to low-beam and not blind the other driver.

As I was sitting on the curb waiting on Pennie to pick me up I was already thinking of repairs and the fact that this would not keep me from one of my favorite shows of the year. Not really the show it's all about the good times in the camping area. I love getting together and just hangin out!! I'm making up a sign for my car, he's entered in the show, exsplaing why I should win Daily Driver Class. It's a damn daily driver for sure!!!

I'll be Damn'd if I'm going to let this stop me from making this show!

I appreciate all the conversations guys, I hate it "but such is life". I drove it to work today and it still rolls fine!!

Wow, just saw this... Glad you are ok. The bug looks great after your repairs. I have a pressure washer and a large floor jack at home if you wanna bring it by today after work for some deep-cleaning underneath.

Also, I'll help you wire the driving lights to work with your headlights like you want. I have plenty of wire and relays at home, no worries there!

After detailing the sprints I was just itching to put them on....I still have to get the back tires changed out for some much taller ones. I think they will look good! Also picked up some Rossi headlights from Randy and so I mocked them up with some h4s. Still have to wire them up. Also had an old formula vee wheel that I figured I would throw on. It is not in all that great of shape but oh well...just need to find a horn button

Got some things installed in the car today. Got the glove box in, all the seats in, the antenna on, and the passenger side foot rest and carpet are back in. The big accomplishment of the day was getting the drop spindles on. The car is low now. Hoping that when I install the engine it will push the back down enough to get the front beam off the ground enough so I don't have to raise it.....I can hardly roll the car right now cause the beam is digging into the ground... Twisted Evil

Today I pulled the beam out of o.b. I then cut the old adjusters out and put in two new ones. The old ones were messed up and I couldn't get the car back up far enough. Also installed the new meat on the back of the car. It looks much better now with the 205/65s. With the drop spindles the car has plenty of suspension up front now. Now I need to clean up the engine and tin that I bought yesterday and get it installed so I can drive this thang....
