73 vw superbettle
first thing i had to do was buy a new engine which had been rebuilt by a local vw specialist.
the engine came out of a camperbus.
my question is : while driving it at speeds above 40 mph i get this horrable shake in the steering wheel,and there is about 1/8 turn play in the wheel also,i would like to know what the steps are to relieve this problem.
the next thing i am having a problem with is :
is this peticular yr bug worth restoring back to factory or is it a non popular yr and i should go ahead and play with it and do some customizing?
if i go factory than how do i go about finding a colorchart for this yrs model for the interior upolstery and the cars outer shell?
if i play with it then i'd lke to do some of what i have heard rumors about: installing a certian porshe engine,lowering a bit,chrome roof rack and body decals,tinted windows,wider rear end,lower profile fenders. and maybe channeling the roof and body out a bit for a lower profile in total
and maybe have the only california trick bug in south florida.
i would like input on how to procede from others who have either restored or tricked out thier beloved bugs. as i have had this for 8 months now and the only thing i have done was take some rubbing compound and a buffer to the paint.
