Got this from a friend a month ago... I can't take credit for the bodywork , but it needed some work. Now I have it in paint...

Thanks a lot.... When I got this, it was mostly in primer, but there were lot of flaws still, at one point. The roof came apart and I had to reinforce and use glue and kicker to get it back together... The paint on this is Italian Red. I plan on building inner door panels and changing the rims out for a set of Porsche wheels thati have from an old Testors kit....

very nice , but why no b pillar ?? looks a bit emptt now and also if you would have done a b pillar it would give extra strengt to the body ..

This is the only way I like these bugs, chopped and dropped. I personally like it missing that B pillar, gives it more of a stretched look. I saw a guy who chopped, dropped, and widened a bug before, looked so bada$$. Can't wait to see it done, keep it up.
