I've called in a favore from someone I've become close to and a friend for almost two years now. Senior Chris from VTEngineering. My car has been a complete mess for a while now, but I'm making a come back this year. I don't know how I'm going to pull what I want to do off. But I know, that I will succed.

Out from the ashes! :D


@ My next door neighbor's place. Eibach Springs HQ.



I went to have the Eibach team look at the coilovers, because I was not uderstanding how I was going to lower the rear. Turns out the rear was maxed out and the coilovers will not go any lower. :( FML! So I can't make the car look semi flush. I was also told that the tire to rim ratio was smaller than stock by .5 of an inch. I think with beefier tires, it would look better. But these are 20" Five Axis wheels here. How much beefier can I go?


I started working on getting my bumper fix that I messed up from Drifting at Adams a year or more ago, from crashing into a tire wall. Did the most commen fix a drifter would do. Yes...I'm killing the looks of my car. So what? I'm a ******! Its my excuse! ;)





I washed my car twice today. I called up a friend for a photo shoot today but she wasn't available. =(



Stay tunned. :confused:

You can always take the bottom collar off the Coilover to get a half inch lower, what size tires do you currently have on there?

Front: 245/30/20

Rear: 285/25/20

Same off-set wheels that you have too.

But wouldn't taking off the bottom collar kill off my spring? IS that what you did? .... no you have crazy coilovers... nvm. :bowdown:

Haha thanks. Front bumper has a lot of dings, nicks, chips. All from racing in the canyons. People kick up rocks and dust. It's just an abused little girl that can beat anyone up with all her experience... Or mine. ;-)

Naw. We've painted it many many times. It used to run then my old man got really stupid one day and messed with the electricals and now he's lost. The engine is brand new and was special order by Napa Auto Parts. it has Euro tail lights and Porsche replica wheels. Interior has been re-done twice and it's using oldschool recaro bucket sears. We have a super old classic casset stereo for the car, yet to be installed due to it's condition.

I'd love to take pics but it's not running. The beetle has been an ongoing project for my old man since I was 6. I'm 22 now. Lol I've told him to give up and sale it since he doesn't have the time or the money to fix it and move onto something else. But me yelling him that is like asking for him not to breath, aperantly.

Haha. I know how that is. My dad has had every muscle car under the sun. There's pictures of me when I was 5 years old spreading gasket seal on an oil pan for his cougar. He recently sold our longest going project, a 72 chevelle ss that we had worked on off and on for 6 or 7 years.

you mean the grill and the fog light bezels? I have really bad news about that. I received a text from our supplier that they could not do them. I ended up losing my phone that day (a long with my contacts) so i wasn't able to text him back and ask him why...:(
