Looks good. Those fender flares look similar to ones I've seen on Jeeps. I think those were made by Bushwacker.

I'd like to see more pics

Looks like those tires & wheels tuck up under there pretty good. Nice work. Where did you get an idea to use the flares? I like it.

I love the RWB cars but I am a poor beetle owner, so I thought to myself if RWB built a beetle what would it look like ? in my mind this is what I came up with, I will be adding a VIS GT3 style rear wing in the next few months.

Ahh, I see where you got your inspiration. Their cars are bad-a**.
What suspension are you running & how is the ride quality? I'm looking at options for my TDI this spring/summer.

im running these no name coilovers I got from e-bay, on a 1 to 10, 10 being stock ride. I would say it's about a 7 its seems to be a bit boucy in the front. I think stiffer springs would help.

Thanks.

What are you running for rocker panels? They seem to have more of a squared/angled look to them compared to the stockers.
