About Bugzilla

By , 2009/11/04 9:38 pm

Bugzilla is a custom 1970 Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle). The list of modifications is extensive, but suffice it to say that the list of things that haven’t been modified is very short.

The major modifications are

  • 4″ roof chop
  • Suicide doors with single-window conversions
  • 3-4″ wider fiberglass fenders
  • 2110cc Bernie Bergmann engine
  • 2.5″ dropped spindles with adjustable beam
  • 4-way disc brakes and 5-bolt conversion
  • Front tires: 205/50 R17, Back tires: 255/40 R17

This car is not a trailer queen and gets driven about town for fun and to shows. It’s a blast to drive and people seem to enjoy it wherever it goes.

    Hey, i spoke to you at the bug show at the fair grounds and you mentioned a place to get the suicide hinges. Can you please give me the web site or the phone number. Also the single window conversion.. do you have issues with it…

    Autoloc sells a few different kits for suicide doors. Here’s a description of some of the products: http://www.thehoffmangroup.com/autoloc/suicideconfigure.lasso?step=operation – I can’t recall where I got the kit/plans for the ones we used but it was from a street-rod parts place. The street rods have thin doors just like a bug but usually aren’t as curved. A google search for “hidden hinge kit” turns up a few. They take a lot of work.

    The single-window conversion works great. The only catch is that the shape of the chopped glass causes it to fall out of track slightly at the top near the B-pillar when rolling the windows up. I just hold it it place with a finger and it’s fine. They are down most of the time otherwise. No noise at all, up or down.
