Thanks guys, I'm pleased that you like my efforts. Yes you just can't throw anything away, there are plenty of ways to rescue/rebuild kits, I just put the name of the vehicle into Google image search, and things appear that make you think, YES.
Thanks guys for your comments. Stephen I used to be a race and air traffic marshal at the Silverstone circuit 5 miles from here. When we had a Bultaco Trials Bike in the '80's I would put the trailer on the back of our family Beetle and take the bike to do just as you said. It was far too crowded to use the car inside the circuit so I would use the bike, great fun when you think that most of the spectator viewing areas then were high grass banks alongside the track, perfect for a trials bike when I had an hour or so off duty during the day!
Yes you say that so we must be able to do it! I've built lots of the AMT Meyers Manx over the last 2-3 years and changed most everything except the chassis anf Beetle engine. I bought a Flintstone Resin Manx kit body and windscreen. Used the paddle type tyres front and back and a Corvair motor and a Dakar Mitsubishi 4X4 running gear and hey presto another idea comes to fruition ! I'm presently thinking about a six wheel Manx design with a woody truck bed and a woody trailer from a Model T kit! Ah well back to reality, I'm replacing some fencing round the garden if it doesn't rain today.
Now there's another idea for a modified 181/Thing in surf/beach/dune look! Yes do keep dreaming, that's where I get most of my ideas for changing kits as I build them, waking at 2 or 3 am and writing things down!
Very interesting and different, both good as well, very well done. I'm all for trying things out and I definitely don't have any problems adding parts and styles from any make of kit or car come to that. Great to see innovation and imagination.
