WWDJK do?

Postby Maraschino Larry » Thu Nov 15, 2012 11:13 am

Not sure if anybody else is following this build... http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5796261-IsLow-the-Slammed-Rabbit/page6

Basically he's rebuilt the unibody to serve as a lowmobile

This is what I used to dream of for my coop but I've definitely grown out of that phase. However, the quality of the work or something has me watching this one with anticipation.

While scrolling through today I was thinking what wheels would actually do this thing justice. I find it just plain too low and it starts looking odd. Do you go big? tiny and wider than normal? Retro? Modern? I'll be back with some ideas after letting it marinate, but I'm curious what you guys would do with it.

I can't even fathom having that much time to do that much work. That's all I can think about. :lol:

This could be one of the dumbest things I've ever said but I'm feeling some drag inspired like a no spoke solid rim. Anything else is going to be buried so deep in there you won't see it and half to rely on common sense to know there's a wheel in there.

Were it me, a steel wheel with an old aluminum VW beetle hubcap, along with some white walls.
He's got a lot of work into it. Having it so peeled apart and working bit by bit, it makes it look so simple. Why wouldn't more people do that? And then I realize that more people don't have 2 bays and enough time to finish a project like that. There's a lot of time devoted to that rabbit.

Interesting how the majority went for a solid wheel. Can't say I disagree. Oddly enough the one Mike posted really captured my imagination. If all of that racecar looking fab isn't going to be hidden the kind of tie that in too.

If the car were painted in a modern silver with a clean finishings I'd love to see what these would look like

Yeah I wish the V1s came in something smaller than a 17.

Update: Turns out the builder was on the same sort of page as our general consensus...

Those things look wicked. I'd love to see the body - colour matched and the chrome - centre matched (gunmetal chrome).
