Excellent, I'm liking that a lot. What do reckon on headlight rims? The Porsche has chrome ones, mmmmmmm. Possibilities. Definitely continue using artistic license, it will be an vw interpretation not a clone.

Dunno on headlamp rims. Could stay white, go for chrome or perhaps in the red or blue?

Experiment with the choices. If it looks better in white, for example, go with that. Porsche color coded headlight rims in the late 70s I recall before that they were all chrome.

Cheers Andy.

Definitely looks better with chrome or white headlamps. Would look better lowered I think. Highlights how low the Porsche shell sits compared to a bug. I like it but I like the 911 more. Should I feel guilty about that ?

Thanks S’ok I guess. I think it’d look better in ‘real life’ but the 911 definitely carries off this look better!

Kerscher make a 911 style front bumper in fibre glass but it's no cheap
https://www.kerscher-tuning.de/kaefer/detail.php?id=130

If you look at the bug in isolation it works but the low slung 911 definitely looks more sexy. Say, the playboy model versus the lass next door. One very expensive but thrilling, the other more reliable and cheaper to service.....

Hi Andy,
Now you've sobered up, how about that tweak to the image we talked about. Shouldn't take long....
