Sorry, progress has been minimal :(
Because I took a challange and started building a cabrio for my customer: http://www.beetle.ee/foorum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3955

But few weeks ago I got rear coilovers what are the most expensive part in my car :D (double adjustable...made for drag cars) Then I let some pipes bended and maybe next week They will be welded :) Then It should be rolling body finally. It got 4 disc brakes (it used tu have 4 dums)

I cut the smashed nose and It will be without front fenders....actually fenders will be like on motorcycles.....on the wheel.

I´ll upgrade this topic soon but at the moment I let you see some stupid things I´ve done :D
