Since acquiring my new Beetle(Frankenbug), I have been stalking this site nearly every day for assistance so I figured I oughta make it official&join.
Here's the story: I needed a car desperately and I kinda always had a thing for these cute cars, but never thought I'd own one. I found myself needing to buy a reliable fixer-upper with very little cash,enter Frankenbug. He was being sold dirt cheap after a (light)front end hit & needed some work. Mainly it has been just body work. It doesn't seem that this tank of a car had any mechanical or engine damage really. He was sitting for quite some time,just waiting to be brought back to life.
I will note that I know next to nothing about cars or car repair and literally read & learn as I go. I have friends (one of whom is a HUGE fan of everything VW) helping me when they can, and now the NewBeetle.org site...officially ;) . At the moment we have already pieced together most of the front end (fender & headlights) but I'm going through the trouble-shooting process now for everything else. When I figure out exactly what it is I need to ask, I will be running directly to this site.
Thank you so much for providing such a useful tool for newbies like me! :)
