Glad to see you've made it back to this forum. Thanks for the compliments. I must say your bug was an inspiration to me as I started my build. I've seen your build up pics, and it going through some of the changes it has, from the 283 to the LS1, but I didn't know you've added a turbo too! Awesome!
I'm still working away on my build. It won't be until late next year when I have mine on the road, I hope, if not sooner. It's getting there though. Body work is taking some time. It'll be fun once it's finished though!
BTW, drop by www.v8bugs.com
, you'll find quite many people building V8 bugs. A few of which are using the same chassis design yours is based on, prostreet (glass station build). If you get a chance post a little something about your build. I've posted some pictures of your but I'm sure it's that much cooler hearing from the builder.
