I`ve been working on the floor pan so I`ve posted more pictures on the Samba. But I`ll throw some up on here.
It`s been in the body shop for over a year, but that's not unusual...


Craig at Above And Beyond has been doing a lot of the welding before I have the body blasted. Dechromed side trim and dash, filled exhaust cutouts, Full heater delete, Lucas turn signals, no antenna, Clean firewall.... you know, Cal Look.
Meanwhile, I took the pan home and started stripping it in preparation for powder coat. Hopefully soon I`ll take it out to Scott at Metalcraft to again delete the heater, weld new Wolfsburg West pans, reinforce the clutch tube, fit a bigger fuel line with AN fittings, weld trans mid mount brackets on, Fabricate custom seat mounts, and set the shifter back.












Slowly but surely it will get there.

Here`s some of the parts I`ve been collecting...

I had the aftermarket VDO tripmeter rebuilt to match the VDO Series One gauges


Scat made me a set of Pro90 seats with houndstooth inserts

I can`t afford the repro early 911 seats that I really wanted, but I think these will look the part

ARPM alternator stand (Even though I plan on using a generator

Thanks, it`s going to take awhile. But it will be worth it.
