Nice progress and car!

Where did you get that center gauge plate the mounts in the radio spot?

Thanks, it is a working progress the gauge mount came from

Fast Fab you have to use VDO gauges

Cool, thanks for the link. My radio has been giving me problems lately, and I am looking for other options before I try and get another system.

Itawolf Thanks for looking, I am very pleased with the way it is turning out.
I finished the interior yesterday will post more pictures when I get time.

Very nice work Randall. I see someone asked about the gauge package in the radio slot. I have a 56 I'd like to do that to does it leave the hole unmolested? I just finished my 8yr resto it's the thread just below yours. I installed a T4 motor along with a beefed up regeared tranny. Never driven a bug before it goes good but theres alot more motor noise than in a bus. I was trying to put a camber compensator in the rear but didnt like the way it bolted up to the tranny. Does that bracing in the rear of your car stop body lean or beef up the back from the 2110 torque you'll have? I also installed a set of Chip's LED taillights in my snowflakes, they are Awesome! Again, nice work and great color :wink:

Yes, the radio hole does NOT get cut in anyway I love the way it came out.

The bar in the rear is called a torque bar. It will virtually eliminate axle hop problems by reducing rear frame horn flex on your Type 1 chassis.

Chips LED's are the stuff I like them.

If there is anything else let me know

I like the color you used on the 56. I also have a solid 56 complete car if I ever get to it.
