I have now bought my Proflex rally shock absorbers, as I hold on to adapt. Plans are for the weekend to begin welding roll cage finished. Creating finished last mount to shock absorbers.

That's as wide if not wider than my bug, damn. What's the track width in the rear (wheel center to wheel center)?

Thank you for all the great comments:-) Wheel center to center is 1580mm. So it is quite wide. But as it is now, the wheels much of the blame for the width. If I had chosen some other wheels BBS or compomotive ET 50 or 60. If I could have managed with my 70mm wideding, as I have. On each side. But now I have to make me some custom fenders 140mm ekstra on each side.

I have a lot of work left before it is ready for startup. And before it is ready for testdrive. When I finished welding everything. I start with a good paint job in the engine compartment. So I stretch all the cooling hoses, electric network. fuel system, etc. So in the spring, should it be ready for some testing

Now I have started the time consuming process, welding together of the body in the new engine room. All internal fenders.

Now I'm going again. There has been much welding and body work on the car lately. To complete the inner Fender. And the painting of the car on the inside. Has changed the timeing belt today. To the Kevlar type. Starting and building the gearbox from the 4 wd to 2wd tomorrow. Focus on getting the engine and gearbox in place within 2 weeks. So maybe it will start in the summer :-)
