I took the Tom Danels bug kit and put a Revel funny car interior machine alumimun wheels with alumimum lug nuts. Also I put a formula one scoop to give it the old baja bug look to it. The engine is wired as well as the oil lines.
Paint is 1973 champagne with 3 coats of clear. I omitted the exhaust tips and hollow out the ends to give it a flush look to the body.
