The original was a 'Show Car' based on a tube frame chassis, with a dropped front axle and a 1960 Corvair engine.

Mine will be VW Beetle and fully road legal and designed to be driven.
Need to sort the steering, as keeping the VW front axle, the body/grille will come 'over' front beam.

Took delivery of me two bubble tops on Monday, just wanted to clarify the 'Rebody Rules' so now full steam ahead.
1 fluorescent (for shows) & 1 Clear (that will be cut down to from a 'screen' for daily driving)

Body will be made laying fibreglass over a plaster & vermiculite buck.

This Forum is a fantastic site for information and ideas, but I don't see where my car build could be posted.
