64 Ruby Red Sunroof Beetle.

Post by bakertim2 on Fri Apr 13, 2012 10:51 pm

So, I picked up another small window bug last night. It's in rough shape. Factory sunroof and been painted orange at one time. I'm planning on slamming and driving it. I have a few things to get for it yet. Rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders and a mastercylinder.

It would be a miracle for this car to make it to BAP. It would take 24 hours a day for seven days with the Overhaulin crew to get this car done. Calling all favors?

I don't think I'll ever beat my record again. Only owned this Oval I bought a few years back for less than an hour.

So let's see how many of the masses of folks Tim has helped out show up to help him get it on the road for BAP. If you have time this week is all he has. So give him a call and help him out.

Well Kyle and I got it in the shop and dropped the front axle out. Only had a little while to work on it. Tomorrow. after some stripping on the 912, I'll get the narrowed beam back in and maybe the front spindles and brakes back on. Then I plan on dropping the back end and getting the rear brakes done.

Anybody have any ruby red rear or left front fenders? I guess if no one can make it out any evenings this week, it'll have to wait until after BAP. Sure was wanting to be able to drive my own car to this show.
