Time for an update, well kind of.

Shell has been given a nice coat of satin black. The NOS doors have been lightened using large hole saws and the inner panels cut out. Alex Taylor@ Defcon 3 folded the cut edges over to give a bit of strength back and it looks nicer than just cut edges  

Doors are currently being primed and once back will be fitted with the custom hinge pin/hinge set up. All steering components finished and fitted and pedals have been mocked up. I have two pedal assemblies, I need to make a decision on what to use.

Chassis trolley was cut down height wise so shell could go back over the chassis and still go under the garage door.

Next jobs are to final set chassis ride height/body then start the never ending task of dzus fasteners for wings, flip front and Ali panels inside.
My wife and I have decided to have a bit of a break from the house renovation so hopefully more progress soon

Got any other pictures?  The old uploads don't seem to be working.  I'm curious, taking notes; I might have a project up my sleeve.

Yep, unfortunately photobucket holding their users to ransom has removed most/all of the pics on this thread
If you need any specific ones PM your email and I will send them to you.

What project do you have?

The day I picked it up.  It's pan based, so it can be raced in super stock, but definitely not your average t3 pan car.

2 tone not staying, but it's getting there (slowly before Danny says it Smiley )

It made me think of Danny's bug when Chris had it as Hem bug

A quick update.

House renovation and garage build are almost finished (well, are they ever finished) so going to get back on the project now.

Although two years have passed, I have collected more bits and pieces including a turbo geared trans (currently with Pete in pieces!) as well as an 84mm flanged type 4 mains flanged crank.

First task is to dig it out of my parents garage as it has got a little buried, finish the body mounts and start dry building all the parts on to the chassis.

Hi,
My oval is 640kg, I would like to think 575kg is achievable for the notch but I am quick to say that is a guess!

Hi guys,

Thought I would update with an apology.

It seems my lack of progress/slow project has been bugging a few of you a little bit.

My apology is I just don't care  Smiley

Well, there has been a bit of a pandemic to work around... I've not done anything on the school project Beetle at all since last March!

Hi Neil, hope you are keeping well.
It was on a go slow long before the pandemic Neil.
I have never said it would be a quick build, I just have other stuff in my life (all positive) that is more of a priority and enjoyable.
