More Parts on the WayIt's time for another update! Earlier this week a large order of parts shipped out from Arizona and should be arriving on Monday. Early Beetles where not known for there incredible stopping ability as the cars came equipped with standard drum brakes all the way around. Since this car is going to become my daily driver (in the summer at least) I decided it was best to upgrade the brakes. I will be getting in a full set of disk brakes for both the front and back wheels. I realize that I could have done just as well with only front disks and left the backs to the drums but for the added piece of mind the cost was minimal and it will be that much safer. Along with the new brakes I'll be running a new 20.6mm brake master cylinder to keep up with the added pressure required for the 4 disks. I don't think stopping will be an issue!
With all those shiny new brakes in there I figured I'd need to add some improved tires as the stock tires leave a lot to be desired. The stock wheals are so narrow I also put a set of EMPI style 8 spoke two tone wheels to improve the look and feel of the car. I'll start my selection process for the tires shortly.
