Thanks much.
I don't know of two many uses for nylons other than this and a cheap Halloween costume.

Minor update-seats (thank you, bin of Kubelwagen parts), shifter/handbrake and more outside details. Next time I'll have more to talk about!

This is so freaking good

Fantastic work mate, you are now my VW hero
And thanx for the button cover tips, I've been looking for a long time for something to use as hub covers, and you came with the answear
Do you know it the are hub covers that are more curved, i.e the center part is furter away from the flange side than the shallow ones you are using?

Hey-thanks for the great words! These are more like "dog dish" hubcaps vs "baby moons" but the closest I have seen. I believe one could also use the hubcaps from the 1/8 Monogram Big T-as the tires I am using are from the same kit.

but...did you put wideners on rear hubs?
it's too wide, there is too much space from the bed to the wheel...

IMHO obviously

No-I hear you-I had a few tire choices on there when I laid out the suspension and wound up here with these slicks. When I had some wider tires on there is was less of an issue. My problem is the axle length and the domino effect-If I narrow the axles, the suspension needs to come in as well-and it would interfere with the bed. You see it in the worst from the rear shot bit it's not so bad when you look at normal angles. I need to live with it for now.

Try it. If it doesn't work, try something else.

Looks great - love the license plate. Going to be quite a trick hiding all the electronics, I bet.
