   While I was rebuilding my 1966 VW Bug, I was often looking for pictures, how-to's, and tips for specific steps that I was about to take on but often found it difficult to locate because everyone had a slightly different name for a process. So in hopes of helping people out, I decided to organize some of the work I encountered by type in hopes that you can narrow it down no matter what you might call it that I don't. So here are the broad categories:

  • Chassis and Transmission Work

    • Replacing Pan Floors
    • Clearancing Bellhousing
    • Front Beam Replacement
