Formerly known on the old boards as Angel's 2002 Platinum Grey GLS, :D

I bought my car in December of 2004, a week or so before Christmas. Gift to myself :D

I went miles out of my way to look at him based on this dealer photo - which is what he looked like the day I brought him home:



Right now, all I will be doing are cosmetic mods. Subtle, somewhat retro-ish small things...that's really all I want to do at this point. But I love my car and I still like to show it off.

- I do not posess the time, money or knowledge to muck around with tech mods... yet. The time will come, once I'm finished beautifying him.

Cosmetic Mods:
  • Rear clear corners
  • G2 Altezza Tails
Planned (not in any specific order)
  • Clear third brakelight
  • Retro Wheels
  • Eyelids
I've finally gotten a *Real* digital camera, so after I clean the Bug up a bit tomorrow, I can finally add some pictures.

I'm happy to say that these lovelies should be decking the car out right around Christmas (and our 1st Anniversary!)

awesome bug!

in irvine??? that's it, we gotta meet up! i'm in riverside... not too far from ya!

Awesome! Are you a SoCalNBC member? I joined when I first got the car but felt left out always being unable to join in on any GTG's so I kind of just lurk on the list. :eek:

I just noticed your car. I am not a fan of the Batik, and I normally hate flames, but holy crap, I love your car!

I'm discovering that many of the things I hate on Beetles/Other cars I am beginning to like now because some Org'ers have pulled them off so well on their cars!

Decals and Misc.

Six Speed makes great decals - I got silver.

Excuse...
1)Crappy lighting, my carport is in an awkward position.
2)Dirt. Car gets all clean and shiny tomorrow :)

Side:


Rear:


Rear from the RearView:


I had a little accident with the second side decal (okay, so it accidentally got thrown out, and then when I dumpster dove to get it, some of it was ripped or nasty... so I used what I managed to salvage for my efforts:


Went to Target for Meguiars, impulse purchased some seat covers. Yay for Purple:


I still need to cut and alter them to be airbag friendly. Anyone got a pic of the velcroed sides of some airbag friendly covers so I can copy?
