I've got a pair of screw-on Turbine MQQN discs for the rear.
Probably going for 3inch wide space saver wheels on the front.

Still lovin' this build.

It is amazing how fast you have created something from scratch.

As I think you only started slapping the plaster on in May!

Good luck, Paul.

Still working on this madness!!

Started cleaning up the torsion arms ready for chrome.


Shaped up the seat, will make a removable fiberglass shell, that will up upholstered.



Thinking about some cosmic air vents, have got some steel u-bends, but would love to find some Perspex tube.

For the Third Brake light, I have bent up some 20mm acrylic 'bubble' rod, this will shave red LED's at either end and it between the headrests.

Also been playing with plastic bubbles for the front headlights.
Was rushing too much, as they kept on melting in the oven.
Will have a better go at the weekend.

Wow Colin - 6 degrees of separation and all that!

Itís great to see someone creating Ed Roth cars using the same techniques as he did. The plaster / vermiculite/ GRP body construction etc.

I wish I had seen this thread earlier. I came back to WSM just before Christmas to visit family. I grew up in Brean (near WSM) driving Cal look beetles up and down the sea front in the 80s.

I now live in Mound Minnesota USA and one of my neighbors is a fairly well know Roth car restorer - Mark Moriarty.

He has a garage clean out every year and managed to snap some pics of some of his forever toys. A couple are the original models Revel made to promote some of their kits.

I think the good pics are on my phone... Iíll post them up tomorrow!

Thanks for posting. Itís so great to see such a great and innovative build!
