Flat 4 Racers

Well first VW event of the year for me. Me and my buddies Victor and Herman took a roadtrip up to a nearby town called Falun to enjoy some aircooled love.

Here are some picture.

Project Coffee Glider Part 2

Well this weekend has been productive, on Saturday we pulled the body of the pan and start fixing all the fucked up welding job somebody has done before. We could rip it of with our hands, thats how bad the welding was. My friend Niklas is better then me with the welder so he is my personal welder for this little project 🙂 Me and my buddy Jesper that i’m borrowing the garage from started scrapeing the pan from crap and stuf. The pan is realy solid for not being on the road for 20 years. the last passed car safety inspection is 1989.

Well some pictures from the wekeend.

Body of, and a nice hight for working.

I did have some thoughts how i should do with the messed up dashboard, somebody had put an oldstyle rev limiter under the dash, but cut a big ass nasty hole for a oilpresure gauge above the stereo, instead of finding another dash to cut a peace from we came up with this, it’s an old stereo that i had and it should work and we put the rev limiter above there stereo in the hole, doesn’t look sooooo bad i think

need a little more job but you get the idea.

Project Coffee Glider Part 1


So i haven’t had a hobby car in 3 years, and if you are unemployed like i am, it is hard to find the money to buy a car. But with some help from good friends anything is possible.

So now i am the happy owner of a fenderless 1961 beetle with some unstylish 80´s modifactions.

So here it is.

It ain’t pretty 🙂 but it’s a good and solid and almost rust”free” car. Some idiots in the 1980´s thought it was a good idea to put a plastic panel over the dashboard, now it’s gone but there is some nasty holes that needs welding.

The car is converted to 12 volts, but the wiring looks really nasty, should be fun to sort out 🙂

As soon as i get the car to my buddy’s garage, then i will start taking out the interior, or whats left of it.

the original paint is Jupiter Gray, so i will go for something like this.
