    Thanks again guys.
     
    Ha, I'm on The Samba as well. I own a 1960 Fiberglass dune buggy. 
    Model building helped me make this car a reality. Just swapped out the styrene for steel.

    Thx Pete. Not sure what is going on with the pictures. I resized them a little smaller. I think that fixed it.

    Type 2 VW Pickup
     
    A build I did awhile back. Major work was done to get the stance. Interior needed to be reworked to make room for the tires.Lower box doors and engine door was opened up to show the engine (This kit was a curb side so added an engine). Top box rails were also made functional. Added bucket seats and a console to finish it off.

    Such a  nerve wracking stage in the build. You spend all this time on a chassis and the paint job can either compliment your work or wreck it.  I should known better than to not paint the body first. LOL
    As for color I went with what I was going to do in the first place with an added stripe. Started the multi step paint process today. Primed, interior painted, masked and first stripe color painted. Will wait a few days for the next step in the process.

    I think you got ripped off. BUT, I am willing to give you a way out and cut your losses. I'll buy it off of you for what you paid. 
    I have this garage kit, very cool kit. Can't remember what I paid but a heck of a lot more than you did . Nice score!

    Thank again you guys. I'm on a bit of a role. 
    Chassis and interior is complete.

    Thx for the comments guys and following along. With this new government up here in Canada the province of Alberta is hurtin pretty bad. My business is feeling the pinch and I haven't been in the mood for building. I did sit down this weekend and tried plugging away a bit. Felt good to get my mind somewhere else.
    Exhaust is done. Wasn't enough room for mufflers so after scratching my head for a while came up with this idea. Mechanical dumps with some parts box mufflers. Went out the side of the body for the exhaust exit (I have always loved that look).

    Awesome to see this build. I found this kit last week and snapped it up right away (one I actually didn't have).
     I love seeing these buggies built. You have done it justice capturing the era perfectly, well done!
     I am a self-proclaimed expert in the field LOL. I have a 1:1 1966 fiberglass dune buggy that will one day replicate in 1:25th.
