Ok so good bit of progress, we got the body prepped and painted and it came out ok for an aerosol job

Also made up some lexan quarter windows and fitted them.

Now being the wifes car and she loves the steel og style wheels there was no chance of me getting away with some lighter alloys

To fill the rear arches we went with 7"wide rears painted in cloud white and fitted with budget 207/70/15

Up front we went with stock 4.5x15" again painted cloud white but this time fitted with 145/15" budgets

So we began to apply some "Patina" Some is genuine rust and some is rusty paint.

I forgot to mention we cut the rear end off for easy access and to save some weight the engine will run open like it does in a buggy or baja whilst still running a deck lid and rear valance, more pics to show as it takes shape

Also have started some plans for some retro sign writing/artwork to complete the look we are going for.

Thanks

Jay

Got a little more done on the body and agreed a design for the sign writing.

I had an old mate who is a retired sign writer do the artwork for us and he did an ace job all done bu freehand

Next up will be the power plant

Been collecting parts for the engine for a while and the specs will be as follows:

76x94 2109cc
Webcam 86b with 1.5:1 pauter roller rockers
044 heads 42x37.5 oval port
10:1 compression
Empi 44 hpmx carbs
CB magnaspark digital
1 5/8 merged header with stinger and muffler for the street.

This will make for a nice tried and tested combo for the street whilst still not being a slouch when you bury your right foot

Pics to follow......

Thanks

Jay

Looks well, looking at the design would have been cool if he could have worked a VW badge into the hair.
Smashing job on the patina.

Engine looks like it'll pack a punch!
