that buggy sure looks good. Got a motor in it yet? I think VW is a great way to go cuz it's light. your comment on going to the ER made me laugh. I'm still trying to make it a full year without going to the ER. Good luck, be safe. Ty

Kinda late on this but I didnt see these posts until now.

amxcess .. No I dont have an engine in it yet. But I do have an Engine for it that needs to be torn down, rebuilt and then it will get installed.

Barry .. I havent touched it since the pics posted above were taken. Well I installed the gauge box and thats been it. I ran into an issue with the seats not fitting the way I wanted and just stopped. I finally figured out how I'm going to get them to fit and am now just waiting for the time. It was one of those things I should've noticed during the frame fabrication especially since I went through it on my other sand rail with these same seats.

But I didnt catch it when I placed the seats during fab and of course it stood right out after I got the frame powder coated. Now I have to cut out one straight vertical support on each side and replace them with ones that have a 30* bend in them.

I go 3 - 4 months with little to no side work and now that its cold and raining out I am getting 2 -3 jobs a week. Not to mention some old priority work for a couple of guys that has been on hold.

I will have it ready to run at the start of Spring and will then put it up for sale and hopefully start on another one.
