Indeed...AWESOME! :shock: So many nice custom touches, and I'm sure I'm missing the really classy ones.

Thanks guys....

The motor will be a bit of a break from the norm', 'Looking to have around 250 -275 BHP..........fingers crossed! We'll see :lol:

And thanks for noticing the mod's, the idea was to make them subtle so when people look at the car.........they have a little smirk to themselves when they see one that they think others have'n't :D

'Should be near finished (as far as these things ever are!) in around a month ...or maybe two...

'glad you like it

Hutch,

When I said a change from the norm'............... the motor will still be a flat 4 but with H2O :lol: Think Subaru power! I know it's not to everyones taste but where else can you get that sort of reliable turn key power with NO worries? 250HP in a bug should be FUN!

67 Newbie,

The 'cage is a 4 point 'road' cage from Bernard Newbury in the UK,

The mod's on the decklid were carried out by a company called FBI in South Wales, It's all steel and yep it's fully functional!

it started out as this............

and with a few more mod's ended up like this.........

The dcklid lock is one of the things that I've still got to sort out :wink: The plan is to have a small stainless steel plate with a 'square loop' of stainless rod providing the catch.................... that's the plan anyway
