Customer Rides – Alex’s ’75
Alex's 1975 Beetle Limebug-Equiped Late Bug
If you’ve attended any of the main Volkswagen Events in the UK over the last couple of years, you’re bound to familiar with this late bug. Taking home a considerable amount of trophys from all over the country, it’s safe to say Alex has nailed the showcar formula. Throughout recent years we have helped supply his Type 1 with plenty of Limebug goodies…
Starting with the Suspension, Alex’s Bug is running a Full Deluxe Air Kit. This kit provides everything needed to sit super close to the ground. Up front, a 4″ Narrowed Jawbreaker Beam has been added, allowing Alex to tuck some extra width into his arches. Paired with a set of MOA430 and Dropped Spindles, Alex now lays Skid Ends when aired out. Moving towards the rear of the car, the rear sits just as low, utilising our Cantilever Air Kit; further allowing that extra level of comfort on long motorway journeys.
To fill out the arches, Alex chose to purchase our very own SM35 Split Rims. Finished originally in cream, and now brown, the OE styling of this rim suit the aesthetic of his Bug perfectly. To match his fresh chrome lips and hardware, Alex added some AAC hubcaps, finished the Wolfsburg Crest.
Maintaining high standards throughout, the Bug has also recieved an abundance of Engine goodies. Starting with arguebly the most visible modification, we supplied Alex with a Fat V MST Pulley system. Keeping in with the OEM+ theme, the V-Belt looks standard in comparison to Serpentine systems, whilst still providing the performance upgrade. Lots of other Limebug goodies can be found throughout this engine bay, including a Petronix coil and black rear tinware
