Meet "Beasty"...my chopped beetle

Post by sdudum » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:49 pm

Greetings everybody, meet "Beasty"...my new project. Currently having some work done on rusty areas and straightening some bits. Pan being sourced currently and work happening at the speed of wallet opening and closing.... I am excited about this build as this will complement "Sbongile" my 356 Speedster and at some point my Morris Minor....

Looks great.

Was the roof lowered?

Yes, roof is lowered. Fenders widened front and rear... front lights will most likely be mini cooper S types to keep the sleek look, rear lights also want them to be sleek...maybe 49 Ford rear drop or something flattish like that...
