Default 67 Volksrod

I've been a member for a little while now and I've had several beetles. I finally acquired a decent base that's already had pretty much all of the hard work done. Its a 67 with a beam extender and pretty much everything in it works aside from the speedometer making an awful racket. I'm going to have to spot repair the paint on the drivers door right below the window because there was an adhesion problem there and the paint cracked and is peeling back. The paint job that's on it is very good though (I paint on the side and have a booth at my house) so I hate to mess up a good thing but the color is horrendous to me. Its very very heavy orange metal flake and just screams paint me flat. I've painted multiple cars flat black and I'm trying to go a different route with this one but I just cant decide on a color. Also the frame head needs to be braced which I've already cut the tubing for I just have to weld it in one night this week. Im thinking satin white, maybe a dark grey, or cream with red scallops, just satin red, or maybe satin brown on the bottom and satin black on the top oprtion of the car....arrg decisions decisions

Default Re: 67 Volksrod

I purchased the vehicle without driving or checking anything really because vw's are so cheap and easy to repair. The guy I bought it from said it was a 1500 single port. I had a chance to drive it around a bit and the carb and timing were both out of whack so last night I opened the hood and started correcting issues. It turns out the engine is a 1600 dual port which was a nice surprise. The timing was a little to advanced and the carb was set to dump fuel to compensate. Either way everything is good to go now and I plan on taking it for a cruise around the block when I get home.
