Thanks Tony
Thank you Doctor...

What is the bazooka looking thing on the pass window ?

That is called swamp cooler, which is an old-fashioned air condition..

This is a totally cool build you got going here. I have this same kit and seeing you start on this one makes me want to start the bug I have wanted to build with this kit. I saw a killer bug at a car show a year or two ago that I took pics of and wanyes to make a model of it. Looking forward to seeing more of this build.

I love the slammed bugs with the roof racks, I'm trying to convince my parents to let me buy one for my first car, Not very successfully, i might add.....
