My 66 beetle project.


For about 8 years now i have been collecting parts for the build up of my bug. These are IRS floorpan, gearboxes, type 4 engines, Porsche brakes and wheels, suspension components, 914 guages speedo and tacho, Interior trim pieces, basically lots of parts andof course the bug itself. Here's some photos:

The only work so far on the pan is the installation of the master cylinder and rigid brake lines, also i will be changing the rear stub axles and gearbox drive flanges with ones from CB using the kombi c.v. flange. Found out that my brothers mate runs a Fulcrum suspension shop so will be able to get good shocks at cost :thumb. Engine side of things the parts are ready for assembly bottom end wise, after getting my DTM yesterday have decided will build a 2270cc type 4 first then when funds allow will go to 2613cc as i scored a good set of original german 94mm cylinders from a 2 litre type 4 i bought recently, and have them bored and honed for 96mm KB pistons heres some pics for you all. Cheers Damo.

Thanks-I have checked a couple of US sellers-and they have a core charge or a change over service-so they are reworked items.

I have put my 66 project on hold, due to the fact that i have a very good condition 72 auto notchy sitting idle in my shed, that i am tidying up to sell, at the moment it has a 1914cc engine with Engle W100 cam with twin 40 IDF's stock valve heads. I will be building a type 4 2 litre for it and sell the 1914 type 3 engine as I need to free up some funds to finish my 66. So here's a pic of the notchy, in about 2-3 months it should be ready for sale, then i can continue on my 66.

It's been a while since i have posted on my project but have pulled the finger out and got some new parts, got new front discs and also got a Kafer cup bar which will be installed by the weekend, have put in all the rigid brake lines and currently having a go at fitting two rigid stainless fuel lines if i ever go to fuel injection, I have welded the rear frame horns and welded in a small brace from the rear torsion bar housing to the front gearbox mount, i also have welded the seems on the shock towers on front beam after all this time hopefully the pan should be finshed by this weekend, new CB Performance rear irs stub axles with type 2 cv flanges are on their way along with some CB Rhino trans mounts. Then i will get the SSC transaxle rebuilt with super diff, 002 bus box 3rd & 4th gears, heavy duty side plate. So hopefully soon i can put the body on and see if the stance is right, by the way will need a few lads to help me lift the body onto the pan, here's some photos of me brakes that are finally done. Cheers Damo.

That Pan looks great Damo. Should drive pretty sweet!

just a thought Damo, but that pan would go heaps faster with a light buggy body on it instead of a heavy of bug body. ;)

I had to get a custom set of Flexi brake lines made to fit the brembo's that i am using, i found Wide bay brake hose service in Hervey bay. I sent the dimensions i needed and two days later they were in the mail box, they were $50 each but they are teflonhose with stainless brading and a clear plastic coating with a bend/lay line marking on them and they are tested to 5000 psi, they look the goods and fit perfectly. They meet ADR7 standards also, so no soft pedal for me when i hit the picks.
