The details continue - gauge cluster now.

Cut the stock speedo ring and moved it over 1.5". It was really tricky because I couldn't put the cluster in level, didn't flow with the curves, and it couldn't flow with the curve because it would look too tilted, I ended up with a compromise between the two.

Front and rear latches will be controlled by stock solenoids. Deepest part of front latch aluminum will be embedded in fiberglass to bond it to inner hood surface.

Dirt is still being moved on our hillside, should have a flat spot to build a 26'x40' shop next week. 0 progress on this project, of course things take more time than you expect to get rolling.

Here's a shot of a Super/Boxster S from Sweden, hope to be doing this in my bug next year.

A bit off topic but that porsche look alike track car is an awesome built as well!

Nada, I've been tinkering with the UBRDUB, hope to have fixed a coolant leak, but really just treading water till I get the finals for permits on the new shop. It's very strange to go from working on something so complicated and exciting to essentially nothing. For the past year I've done less mechanical work than changing the oil... I'm seeing maybe 4 or 5 more months before I'm into the thick of it again. I can promise you that unless I die or something really crazy happens I'll be finishing this thing. I definitely have not lost any interest, in fact the delay has made me want it even more and given my mind a little rest that it probably needed.

On a side note, looks like using images off of my Facebook page wasn't a great idea, most of the link look broken, I'll have to get everything repaired and maybe host on Instagram?

I'm glad this project is still going. It is just amazing to watch it go together. It is too bad so many of the pictures are missing. I was wanting to share this project with a friend and did my best with what we can still see. I use photobucket for what I post online. Definitely looking forward to seeing more when you are able to work on the bugster again

I had used Facebook as the picture host, and apparently they don't want to be a picture host, so while the pictures still exist in my Facebook account, the links are different so I'll need to go through and find them then host them on the Samba!

Just seen this morning from one of my Facebook friends from Norway! I TOLD you guys it could be done! Just makes me want to get back on mine so badly...















Beautiful! Hoping to get ahold of the builder to get some build pics.
