Philm,

The orphan will be a great turn key car for someone lucky....


The Beatle are an iconic car, especially dropped and black.....

Vintage speed on this one, hopefully 100hp.

Should be a fun thing.

So is the Beetle (your one) going to be called "Cookie"?

Goes well with Grover, Bert and Ernie.

Hahahaha.... I'd like to see you get that ADR approved.

Where do you find this stuff...?
Answering my own question - Judging by the bicycle and dude wearing the satgat hat, I'm guessing Vietnam? Possibly, high-tech stealth technology used by the viet cong.

Default Wired up

Spent some time on the Orphan.

Too many hours making sure you don't see any wires in the engine bay, and a few more to go, just waiting to start to be sure everything is ok first.







"Display Only" live side pipes coated and fitted.



A few more hours and its done.

Very nice Phil, can you see out of the LH mirror or is it just for looks?

Regards.

Here you go.

The Mirrors are Finishline Ray dot repos.

The finishline bracket didn't fit so I drew these up and had them laser cut. (still have to polish them)





The top hole is one of the windscreen bolts and the lower I drilled and tapped the post. (I must credit Tenrocca for this method, and no matter how many copy him, I will always know he did it first).

Phil
