Looks like a factory stock build (aside from the paint color), so why the custom taillights? Not a slam, just wondering what your reason is.

BTW... that's a good color for a "bug!" :D

I almost always build box stock, so I wanted to try something simple custom wise, tail lights seemd like some easy baby steps to take. Who knows, maybe next time I'll chop something or flare fender!

Just don't try chopping the top on a VW Beetle... that's really hard to do. ;)

Can't go wrong with an old Beetle!
Really nice job on it! Glad you didn't gussy it up too much as it takes away from the charm of the little car. :)
Now a Baja Bug is another story!!! B)
