Right slapped on some panels to check for fitment...
Guess what it doesn't need lowering but "highering" for the lack of a better word it's to damn low..
I like the tire to hug the fenders, but still show the tire wall..
I think it looks better with this "german look/race style" function over form type of build.. Don't know what yall think but let me know

'Nough said;

To each there own but I think the ride height / stance is spot on perfect where it sits now.

I have to agree with this! Looks perfect to me! Looks like a nice race car stance.

Hey Subbeetle

Will this car see the race track ???...love the looks of it from here....

I bet with numbers on the sides of the car and some rubber "donuts" on the doors...that thing would look crazy cool...

Just my 2 cents..

Nice agressive stance. Combined with the wide fenders she almost looks like you 'sectioned' the body. Great looking car. What color are you leaning toward? Or, are you thinking of an interesting multi-color theme?

He Mike,

This car will be my daily driver.. However some german "Autobahn".. maybe a track or 2, 3, 4...
I'm building it so it can take the abuse of driving to the track, thrashing it on the track and then drive it back home again..
Come hell or high water this car will not be a trailerqueen..

I'm not quite sure what to do with it. The Original colour is L96B, Alaska Blue Metallic.. Which I truly love.. with polished up chrome.. the 17 inch Fuchs rims on it..
On the other hand a lot of people I know really like the look of this "patch work of a paintjob"..

What do you think?

From my days in the Willys Jeep world....they call that type of stuff a "Salad"....your rig looks great as a salad...in my eyes at least...just think if you did race it and you ran into someone just swap out the some parts and who would know any difference...right???

My smelly old 2 cents...

Nice and subtle right?
Itīs a take on the HEIGO Rollcages )which are pretty damn expensive.
But itīs an in house fabrication, however a took parts from a excisting rollcage..
Took a lot of trial and error.. But I like the fittment

Are you going to run a short sump or a dry sump for ground clearance?

I'll be running a standard sump for testing it. After that start saving for a dry sump install..
