Then as I got more into modding looking at it as a car that is not just a front end its so much more diald in then that. The flow of how everything works together is so impressive and the impecable clean presentation. I told you a long time ago you set the bar for all of us...and that bitch is a high bar lol.

Thats what got me to thinking about my own bug and being like I'm not modding for just me I want to make a purist (a bugeye owner/enthusiast) bugeye.
Thanks. I truly appreciate that. Means a lot.

^ nice bug with the camber setting and stance, I'm going to assume you dont rally or ride rough roads very often but, do your lights shake at all with that bar set up?

The light bar is bolted to a mount that's welded to the intercooler support brace. I could literally tow the car by the lights if I had to.

The bumper has to go on/off easily to get on/off the trailer, so I built the mount, and added quarter turn fasteners to the sides by the fenders. 2 bolts up front, and 2 fasteners on the sides and the bumper pulls off. The light bar doesn't stay on the car for the race season. But in the off season I can bolt it to the bumper mount.

The car actually isn't that low and does fine on bumpy roads. The track I run at most frequently is actually very bumpy.



Suspension is Tein SuperRace coilovers, Whiteline swaybars/lateral links/ALK/RCA. There's about -4 degrees of camber on the front, and around -2.5 in the rear. It's not great for the tires on the street, but the car doesn't get driven much on the street.

I def didn't mean to bash your car at all if that's how it came across..!
That's awesome. I run a different light bar every year because I can't figure out how to get them not to shake and keep it clean. I'm gonna have to steal your idea and try it out lol
I really dig the way your car looks! The only 'track' we have up here is either a rough snowy/icy track or an old back road in the dirt and mud and whatever. And visibility is a must! Hate when the shaky beams are bad enough to send an epileptic into a seizure.

No worries, you didn't come across as bashing at all.

Here's some pictures I scrounged up of the mounting beam:





There are nuts welded to the inside of the square tube. The allen-head bolts just screw straight in through the bumper skin, no fussing with loose nuts. The bolts are plenty long enough to allow adding the lightbar to the outside of the bumper skin. The lights are wired with a weather-pack connector under the bumper skin, so it's trivial to unplug the whole bar at once and install a blank plug in the car-side of the wiring harness to keep the pins clean.

^very well done. Thanks for all the info. That is WAY more secure than anything I've done. And it's fairly simple, I really like it! Now if I can figure out a way to adapt it to the stock bumper beam..

quick question. can i reuse the new gasket i bought (OEM) to redo the driver side valve cover gasket? it's leaking at the bottom corner shown in red circle. and i'm losing oil rather quickly

when reinstalling i just put gasket sealer around the half moons of the front part of motor and the inner channel of the valve cover itself so the gasket doesn't fall out.


plus i waited 24 hours before even putting in new oil

Depends on if you smashed it. Generally speaking you should as long as its not damaged.

That mount is brilliant. What kind of lights are those(the yellow ones)?

ok thanks! Do i have to redrain the oil again if i'm gonna redo it? i just recently did an oil change like 100 miles ago
Most of the oil should be sitting in the oil pan right??

Oil is cheap compared to an engine!

I like it, but that scoop... a JDM one would look so much better. That is just my opinion tho! Your car, do as you please.

+1 on that scoop. I understand to each their own, but you should at the very least do something about the splitter that comes in from the bottom side of the hood. Without a properly fitting splitter the top mount isn't being cooled properly, losing both performance and longevity of your engine!

I don't want to come off the wrong way, just want my bugeye brothers to stay informed! :-)

I agree with the scoop! Bigger opening=more airflow though the air isn't being distributed across the inter cooler without a proper splitter.
Otherwise, very good looking car

How is it that in my garage in an hour or so, I can take my lip off and put it on better than the body shop I paid to do it?


Can anyone spot what I added? Better pictures later.
