Well last couple of months has been busy to say the least.
Well let’s start with the end of the summer.
Over the summer i made a lot of Coffee runs to my favorite coffee shop.
Hanging out with the other VW heads in town.
And i had only one minor problem with the car all summer, a cord in the distributor broke and i go tow it to my sisters house with her boyfriends help. Couse they lived closest to where it broke down.
It stood outside in the rain for 3 days and then with help from my buddy Charlie we loaded it up and took it to my garage, and with help from my buddy Mikael we fixed the problem.
Hmm what else? well the biggest classic VW show in Sweden. Bug Run Classic moved from Mantorp park witch is a 5-6hour ride away in a old beetle to Tierp Arena witch is a 30minute ride from where i live. 4 years ago, and from that moment i just wanted my own beetle again and drive to the show. Well this summer it happend.
Went there on Friday morning and sleept in the car that night and was the first one att the car wash area on Saturday morning =)
Hmm what else?
I have been thinking i should by some polished “Fuchs” but i would like to see how the fit first, couse i have a stock wide front beam, i borrowed a set of detailed “Fuchs” from my body Tony with the right hight on the tires, looks damn good but i will keep the steelies on this summer.
So what have been doing since the snow came, well fixing the stuff that didn’t got done in time for last summer, like the footsteps, look at the old pictures and you see that they look like shit and the bends of and they wasn’t lineing up with the fenders correctly. now thats fixed but i need new chrome for them.
And then it was the stereo stuff.
It looked like shit under the hood so now thats taken care of, I had a pioneer P88RS head unit but i was missing the bluetooth connection. So almost 2 month ago i finaly got a job so for this Christmas i
bought my self a Christmas gift =)
Haven’t played with it mutch yet.
And i wanted some new woofers so 21 years ago i bought my first Rockford Fosgate woofer when i was 14 years old, and it’s was time again.
Gonna build a new box for them in a week or 3 =)
And with help of my buddys Markus and Anton we made some better looking copys of the Empi/Vw bumper bars this past weekend.
And to top the last summer of, this happend =)
You can now order a T-shirt or a Sweatshirt with my ride on it.
head over to http://www.slammedshop.com/ and look under the ride and pride collection 🙂
Well thats all for now.
I will try to post more stuff from now on.
I have seen this Amazon all over the internet the last couple of months. Somebody should have done this to a Amazon in here in Sweden years ago but i haven’t seen one.
So we finished the latest BRC movie 2-3 weeks ago, i forgot to put it up here.
Well i have been waiting to shoot this car for 2 years, but last summer Daniel decided that he needed a supercharger, long story short. Things took time and so on, the car was finaly on the road a month ago.

Well me and my buddy Jonas took a roadtrip 3 weeks ago to visit the Rat fink event and later continue to a town 1,5hours away from that event to go to the VW aircooled event Bad Camber. i have been bitching all summer that i don´t want to take my bug for long rides before the Bug Run Classic event because i didn´t want something to happen to the engine before that event, and my bug has been drinking 10Liters of oil since i brought it out this summer =) so i was in the passanger seat of Jonas Turbo VW variant, same as the year before haha.
here is some shots from the uuuuuuuuultra warm saturday at Rat Fink Reunion.
