My Ultimate Plan | Sept. 29 | 1957 Beetle on a 1971 Chassis | Patrick
Client's Vision - 57 Beetle on a 71 IRS PAN
What kind of wheels do you want to run?:15”
Suspension Choice:Static - Set it and forget it
Stopping Power: Disc Brakes - Self Adjusting
Driving Style:Performance - More controlled, better handling, let's burn some rubber
Ideal Engine: Performance - More Power, more torque, I want to have the ability to get out of my own way.
Stance: classic rake lower in the front, almost stock height in rear, wide tires front and back on titanio Venus wheels, discs on all 4 corners, daily driver mostly, ideal engine is fuel injection, 1776-2017cc, freeway flyer transmission
PRO's Plan for Patrick - If you go with he 15x5.5 wheel options they will come with a +15 or 3.84" backspacing up front, you would need a 5" Ultimate or PRObuilt Beam with shock towers for a performance build or a 6" shockless for a cruiser build. 165-60-15 tires up front. This is due to the Chassis swap you have and that makes the suspension platform 2" wider than your original 57 was. I think you would need to go with the same wheels in the rear but with an obviously taller wider tire. 205-65-15 tires in the rear.
As it would ship to the client for FREE in the lower 48 states, it would come with the following:
Stage 1 PRObuilt Beam complete assembled with sport shocks, drop spindles that is narrowed to spec to fit the wheels and the stance the client is looking for and GEN 2 BAD Series Brakes are installed in a Wide 5x205mm bolt pattern and outfitted with 4 piston grey Wilwood calipers. This will give him the stopping power he wants, the stance he is after and ability to give him the best user experience possible. In the rear, we went with an eBrake style NON Wilwood caliper and the Wide 5 GEN 2 IRS BAD Series Brakes couple with adjusting the torsion's to fine tune his ride height and installing a set of rear shocks and Stainless Steel hardware.
