69 Beetle ...Im New!!

Postby beetlebug69 » Sun Oct 24, 2010 12:28 am

Well hi im Ryan from Del City and This is my first bug and already have done alot to it in a matter of 2 weeks.

It had a new paint job but never looked wet sanded so I wet sanded the entire car and buffed it like crazy, now its near show quality! I put new running boards on it New chrome trim, Built that speaker tray in the backseat , put a zoomy pipe on it, tuned it, tri-bar headlights with new chrome rings and eye lashes. No rust on the car at all and has original 1500 single port motor. I am 3rd owner with documented 77000 original miles. Runs great after a tune up! Interior is near perfect but plan to put a few new things in it. I do NOT like the wheels on it and plan to put somthing else on it and lower the front soon. What do you think its worth?
I think I did good at what i paid for it. I hope to learn alot from everyone!
