I'm waiting to find one and then add some MBX dog dishes. I saw a new new Beetle with them and I thought it looked pretty cool.

What are mbx dog dishes? What mbx are they on?

I am a sucker for this color spflm paint. It just looks so good on anything. My favorite is the dbs and viper in the mainlines.

Been workin on my swappin skeelz. Finally got it down so i dont have to drill it out so it saves time.



I just do it for m own enjoyment and to make the car look better. Sometimes for a buddy who might like the particular car.

beetle looks very nice.good to see that axle material going to good use!...i need to start using mine for this so i dont need to dril em out. full flaps, he probably uses some narrow snips to snip the axle, pop in some axle tube(1/32" ID tubing and press in or glue in the axle stubs from the new wheels) just cut axle in half and will slide right in.

Messrs: the Transit Connect is a good example but they come on many of the police cars and older model cars that MBX is producing.

Here is a Beetle with the wheels:

What i do is cut one of the old wheel off with some dikes ten i can snip the end off of the old axel. Then pull it out. Now the base is still in perfect factory condition.
Then drill the axel path out a little with a 1/32 bit to make it so i can slide the tube in.
Then i cut the old axel rod in half or use the ones from the donor wheels which i have to drill out to keep them fron getting buggered.

Ill make a little video and post it for ya.
