New Release: Bugspray 3rd Edition

“Bugspray” has just been re-released in its third edition since 2006.

“This is not your standard ‘How to restore your VW Beetle’ book. It’s also not a workshop manual. Aside from a basic rundown on the differences between various bug models through the years, there is a section on some things you can do to preserve your bug. Mostly however, what I’ve done is reviewed all the things I did to my bugs and put those ideas together as cheap, skillful, cheap, d.i.y, cheap means of enhancing your grocery getter’s performance and handling.

Dollying the rest up is your baby. (Btw, did I mention it’s cheap?) Most of the procedures described can be done by virtually anyone with the parts currently residing on their drive-to-work banger. The rest are low-budget (cheap!) and can be carried out with household or garage tools. All of these are things that I did to one or more of the Beetles I’ve had.” – Christina Engela

Back Cover:

“A host of things you can do yourself to improve your Beetle without emptying your bank account!

‘Bugspray’ is about Beetles. Not about the flashy show cars, but about the ordinary bugs people drive every day, and treasure as a member of their extended family. It’s a book of inventive, low-budget hacks and fixes to keep your bug alive, preserved and even to make a few improvements.

This book is the end result of one woman’s more than twenty years experience with Beetles, and geared toward things you can do to keep your bug going without spending vast sums of money you don’t have.

Most of the things described in this book can be performed by a handy woman (or even a man) with the parts currently on your bug.

Oh – and the pictures are nice too!”
