Default Re: Hot Rod Beetle Ute

Progress has been a bit slow.Have cut the body and had it acid dipped and etch primed.Cut out both side floor pans.Fitted repo front pieces,but made the rear sections from 2mm flat zinc plate.Fabbed a frame to extend the cabin area behind the back of the cab.This will hold the battery,engine ECU,heater unit and some storage.Made seat brackets to hold the buckets from a Mitsubishi Starion.Delivering it tommorrow to the body man to close in the back of the cab.I found an early KG clock on ebay that was burnt out-so fitted a wall clock movement with a battery.Have cut the dash to hold the clock and 68 speedo and the centre section for an under dash style air con unit.The hole where the ash tray used to be will have a panel welded in to hold 2 air guages for the air bag suspension and a temp guage for the Suby motor.
