Most of you have probably seen this car at some point. ASbug had it before me and it has always had a ugly paint job that just killed the "cool" factor of this Bug. He originally had pllans of painting it but just never got around to it. It's taken me some time as well but she is finally rid of her "flames" cheers Just thought I would post some pictures of the stages she went through. I still have some stuff do do but for the most part she is back together.

What she looked like befor the paint

I also wanted to do something different that I havent sen in the Bug scene yet so I decided to do Sharpie art on my dash. I know everybody won't like it but its just the dash and it is telling a "story" with the art we are putting on it. I started some yesterday and a couple friends came by today and help add some more. Eventually I want to cover the dash. It will be my Bugs tattoo Smile

Thanks! I didn't think anybody would like it Laughing
I just wanted to add something that made it stand out from the crowd but didn't ruin the look outside. Plus if I ever get tired of it a little acetone takes it right off.

Or you could just paint some killer flames over it! Laughing

Looking forward to seeing it in person without the flames.

Put on some new wheels today Smile I found a restored set of original Sprint stars. 4.5 on the front and 5.5 on the rear. Ran into a few problems at first.....had to grind the calipers on the front to clear the wheels. Then on the rear my 195/65/15 tires rubbed the fenders really bad so I had to change to 165's and now all is good Smile
It actually sits a hair lower in the front than these pictures show. It settled back down some after I moved it back into the garage.
