Hey guys, I have read some threads about short wheelbases. Mine is 1” almost exactly too short. I bought it already shortened. Before I get to worried about it, I have a question.
My pan is a 1974 Super Beetle, with the front end conversion kit to hang the torsion bar. Manual doesn’t say anything about shortening pan differently “if you are using the Super Beetle conversion......shorten pan only 9”....” etc
So, can someone measure the distance from the front of their standard pan behind the pedals to the centerline of the torsion bar tubes? I want to see if the conversion kit is actually shorter by that one inch.
If you send a measurement, please let me know exactly where you measured from on the “firewall” end.
Any thoughts you have on that conversion kit business would be welcome too. I have considered cutting off that pan head and welding on a regular replacement pan head.
