New here, just moved down from Chattanooga and this is my bucket. I got it in boxes and has been slowly going back together for the last 8 months or so. There is still a lot to do but time and money is tight right now.

My 64 bucket 424ea024
The day it came home.

My 64 bucket 20a7cdf4
The OE engine was pulled apart and put together finger tight than sat for 14 years.

My 64 bucket 787EFCEE-3CB8-4A65-BAB6-4525DBB9C359-6994-00001021A1DB3A50
After cutting twisting and narrowing the beam 6in., dropped spindles, flipped tie rods, setting the frame head back a little over a inch, 4in. Dropped and extended spring plates, 3in. Trans raise, flat pan...and a bunch of other crap I can't remember right now lol...

My 64 bucket 55AFC661-A264-40C8-A6A3-C87D00685F57-6994-0000102202703FFE
The front fender trim is gone...ground it off pulling in and out of the driveway. Very Happy

Thanks guys! Looks like there is a good amount of aircooled people around here. The pictures are with 165's out back, went to 185/60's and mini tubs...resplined a little and much better ride at the same ride height.

Made some trim for the running boards today from some crap laying around work.

Thanks guys! There is a number of things you run into with a trans raise but it really depends on how much of a raise you want to do. For low vw's this is a great forum:
http://cultwagen.com/
Tons of info there and some pretty cool members! In the pictures of the build I have temp tires on the front, I do not run those, they were just for the build. I'm running 145/65's same diameter and much safer. Just wanted to get that out so nobody thought I was truckin around on temps. Very Happy

Thanks everyone! Its actually like a stencil you lay out some lace, in this case it was a table cloth, then you spray paint over it, the paint ends up being the reverse image of the lace. Its pretty easy to do especially when the most perfect result isnt required, the hardest part would be placing the lace straight and laying the paint down evenly. I guess that's just the hardest part about painting in general but with the fabric sucking up the paint it can be a little tough to tell when you have put enough on in some areas. I used a flat black so combined with the rust/rough surface and the flat paint it really looks like it has some type of texture to it.
