2014 Update

Dec 17, 2014 update on JohnInKansas's 1972 Volkswagen Beetle

Solid-mounted the engine and transmission, threw on some really fat tires (15x8 on the front, 15x10 out back), got rid of the wheel spin and hop. Blew up the 4.13 final drive transmission and replaced with a 3.75. Ditched the fenders, they rubbed on the wide tires. Replaced the crusty old front beam with an adjustable (lower) beam, took most of the travel out of the front, unfortunately. Added a functional water-based heater (HOORAY). Front door panels replaced with stained hardwood plywood.
