Thanks everyone...To answer the question about front being a touch wider. Yes..I believe Bullitt Used different axles in the rear and I have the originals he sent also. As of right now, Ive been getting my but kicked on figuring the for sure right way to hinge the hood and doors. That's after I went cross eyed from cutting lil vent slots on the rear area. That are still not done. Ha Thanks again for the comments and views everyone.

One hinged hood. I will make some original looking hood hinges for stock appearances. I used piano wire and bent it all up. Should hide well when painted flat black and the windshield wiper motor box is added to the fire wall. Works great and matches up every time its opened and closed. I can live with that.

The buggy has the REC centerline wheels and rear shafts that keep the front and rear at the same width.

Extremely happy here......I have the passenger door done. Sorry for the awe full pics everyone but here ya go.. I used some string again and cut centers out of the original hinge i left on body. After leaving some ears I took my pen drill and made some pilot holes. Then I also had some solid rod and drilled them out. I then placed doors in position and held with tape. A couple drops of glue, then removed door to finish glue from both sides. Reattached and their ya have it. One functioning door. Very pleased with my self ....Now can I do it again????

it could easily have been the angle of the picture that made things look different widths...thats why I had to ask.

2B - you certainly are making a lot of progress today! hinged hood and a door completed already! whoohoo

me - i get to (have to) go back outside and play with our skid steer/plow in the 5-6 inches of snow we got last night Would much rather be indoors playing with plastic!

Driver side done. They open and close very well and are still fairly stout. I'm digging it...... I may be blind now though...It was worth it ha.

Man, those are tiny hinges! Do they seem like they'll hold up well?

That's the same hinge I made for my Trans build, but it didnt work due to the straight edge it had, ya live and learn I guess. I am taking lot's of note from this for my bug build when I get round to it one day (soonish)

its going to be a rusty paint faded, held together with scale duct tape, patch work look, mad max thingy type road rage Bug!........that type of look ya know. and in fact i was digging about today and found the shell for it, it's in a bit of a S*** state but will work that out

cant wait, keep up the good work

Thank you DougJ. I believe they will. Its hard to tell but being that the ears are thick and on the body and I super duppered the rod added to doors with glue and what nots they open and close spot on every time. They are good and stout for whats happening. I mean you wouldn't want to hang on them or nutting..Buy the time I get some door jams in and two sets of magnets...(I'm stealing off the refrigerator)....Should be just fine. This body will be mostly a shelf queen though. I will run stocker body's for the giddy up and go days.
