Whitney does have a lot of stuff for your bug.
I think that they might be fine cause they've flexed, the fenders, a lot just me bolting them on and taking them off. They've held up fine so far. I didn't add a whole lot of hardener to the bondo when I was working with them to keep it from hardening too fast before I got the filler laid down like I want. So hopefully that'll allow them to flex some.

I was thinking of going with the two tone scheme like I posted earlier in the thread, or maybe this color.

Dayton Blue Metallic

I'm kinda going back and forth deciding what color to paint it when the time comes. I want to give spraying the car a try myself and I hear metallics are harder to spray.
