Rip VW X 2 on the screws. I like that look

Gearhead Poppa Really like how the screws turned out!

123pugsy Left off with getting the front clip ready for epoxy on the areas I worked. Ended up scuffing the whole thing to build up the epoxy. I will also weld in a 3/16" diameter stainless rod wire edge to the inside rim. I had straightened out some creases in the fender edge and am not confident in the strength.

123pugsy Cover screws. I started by countersinking a stainless steel disc.
Not so good.

So I welded up the crack for a better look....

Needed a better look still, so back into the lathe....

Still not good enough so I chucked it up in my drill and hit it on the buffing wheel for a mirror finish. I'm feeling good about this look.

123pugsy Placed the body on the chassis so I can move it in and out of the garage. Temporary steering hook up. Just pull the wiggly pin, slide forward and the steering shaft comes out in less than a minute for the body off.

123pugsy Thanks Poppa.

Gearhead Poppa Wow! This a piece of art. I'm following your build with great interest.

123pugsy Tacked some 1/4" thick hole saw slugs on the back of the cubby door. I can use round head screws or countersink the holes for flat heads. Still up in the air. I found some nice 12 point flanged bolts at McMaster Carr which may look good.

And of course, "Pugsy Luck" comes into play. Dead on the tube. Need to make up a new one later.

123pugsy I bent up a filler piece for behind the brake pedal.

123pugsy Some Kilmat before welding in the false floors.

123pugsy ....air pump in the house with hose running thru door to garage.....

123pugsy Whoops....the inner rocker pulled away while cutting. Sheesh, what a mess......

123pugsy Getting ready for epoxy, I noticed some rust spots on the pinch welds at the rockers. I've hated them since I built the floor, so out comes the zip cut....

123pugsy Wiper sleeves polished up some..........
