PostSubject: Converting over to disc brakes   Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:07 pm

I started convert from drum to disc when I noticed the ball joint boots all worn out. So I figure I would do more upkeep under the fenders as well. So I bought some paint and underspray to protect under the fenders. Then I had to decide weather or not if I should replace the ball joints or just the boots. Found out that if the ball joints are priced cheap that they may not fit in the sockits. Well I replaced the upper ball joints and just the boots on the lowers. Now on the rebuild but taking time do to the weather,mosquitos,work and just plan laziness haha. Hopefully tomorrow I will be finished with this simple conversion.

Yes but I need to talk to Spencer first. It is in the attic of my garage, It is for a newer beetle, because of the seat sliders. As soon as I can get up in the garage I will check and see what I have. We are tiring to get the turbo in the bug so I am real tied up. My wife is a little madder than mad. I have fallen way behind on honey doo list plus buying a turbo system.

Who sell interiors if some one can direct me to a site I can let you know what I have. I will try to get a pic of the front seats one is sitting in my Willys.

Thanks

David

I would guess its for a 74-76 bug but I have to check the box. I know I paid more than usual but not that much. I will check

I have a complete front disk brake system in my garage from my 914 someday I am going to compare spindles to see if they are even close. I am sure they would fit on a super but I have very little hope for my bug.
