    Post Stanced Classic Volkswagen - 1960 Karmann Ghia

    I dig it! Well done Pete and the folks at Airkewld.
    DESCRIPTION ************************************************** **********************************************
    What’s up AirkewldArmy, it’s your friend Pete with Airkewld with the 3rd video of a new series we are putting together showcasing the stance of Classic Volkswagens and the specifications to achieve something similar.
    Because we all have different tastes, this might not be your jam, but rest assured, the PRO’s can help!
    Today, we are showcasing a 1960 Karmann Ghia out of Florida that is equipped with Air Ride that allows for adjustments all the way down or all the way up or anywhere in between.
    To achieve a similar stance under your pre-69 Ghia, a complete Air Ride Kit with a 4” narrowed beam, drop spindle and disc brake combination is required up front. In the rear, the client chose a Long axle, short spline transaxle, from a 67 Beetle and disc brakes.
    Wheels are 17×7 all around with 205-40-17 tires front and rear. Back spacing on these wheels are 5.5”all the way around and are EMPI Repo Fuchs in their Chrome Finish.
    The suspension and brake package can be built by the PRO’s in a couple different ways. Individual parts and products as the budget allows, complete Air Ride kits along with a complete disc brake package or the PRO’s can assemble a complete front end, rotor to rotor, complete transaxle, rotor to rotor, ready for you to slap it in.
    All these specs can be found in the credits at the end of this film as well as in the description below.
    PRODUCTS USED IN THIS FILM ************************************************** **********************************************

    Rear Air Ride
    Air Management Kit
    Complete BAD Series Disc Brakes

    Post Pulling the Gas Tank

    I have a bit of down time, so I thought maybe I should do something with the ol’ girl. Popping the gas tank out seems easy enough.
    First, I need to get the fuel expansion chamber out of the way. I’ll just leave the screw in place for now. I’ve never messed with crimps like this (VW newb, yes). I’ll figure it out as I go. I’m sure this stuff is all common hardware, however one of the purposes for this blog is to remind me what things look like before I took it apart. I’m trying to avoid a “where did this come from” moment. I know that’s wishful thinking.
    Now just four bolts and it should pop right out. Disconnect the fuel line on the bottom. Don’t forget the wire to the sending unit.

    The bulkhead and beam appear to be in better condition than I expected.
    For reference, these parts are in tote 21321.
    Ps. I don’t see a problem here.
