This is a place to chat, set up hang outs, give advice and also set up, the ever popular idea which I have yet to see happen, A NW BUGEYE PHOTOSHOOT!

I apologize in advance to owners of other models, but us Bugeye Brethren are a little different from the rest of you

Lets get this thread kicked off with some photos from you locals!

Love your ride!

I am just low enough so the tire tops line exactly up with the fenders. I rolled all of them, and dont rub unless I hit sharp turns at crazy speeds.

Running 18x8.5 with 235/45/18 nittos.

What is the offset on your wheels? I'm running 245's on a 17x8 +48 and don't rub at all with only rear fenders rolled, I'd say I'm just about as low too.

There there, it'll be okay: your GC is so nice! I see you rolling around base from time to time (even though I've never met you).

I did the same with my grill, just used expanded steel mesh instead of gutter guard. Looks good!

Did you trim your license plate down? Is that legal? I like that idea a lot.

Also, dig the wheels... each time I see a set of those on a GD I'm tempted to get them. They look awesome on bugs.
