Wait! What's going on with those headlights?

Did you put skulls in the headlights?

?

David, yes they are skulls, I should have painted them a little darker, they are hard to make out. I put rhinestones in the eye sockets to look like led's.

The cargo looks great....but what about a surfboard?  ?

I actually hand carved two surfboards for this car. I may put the junk in the back seat area and the surfboards on the roof. Or the boards first then the junk.

finally came up with a way to attach the roof rack to the car, not a big fan of it, just not sure of any other way of adding it to the bug itself. Kind of Gilligan's Island style.

I just noticed I never finished adding the pics for the finished build. It has been a while and had a very tragic year. Want to get away from 2022. Lost my beautiful wife of 22 years two months ago and just now trying to get back to life. Here are the finished pics for the finished product.

I am terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your wife. I know this must be a very difficult time. 

If you don't mind me asking, what kit was this? I love what you did, it looks incredible.
