Yes, it's about time I build a new callooker using the old Gunze Oval-window.

This is how I want it to look like when finished:



And, here are a few pic's in progress:

I've "re-started" this build. Will try to build it as simple as possible as I'd like to finish it pretty soon. I have put a lot of work though, to build a new "customized" dashboard:



...and right now I'm shaving the bumpers and later on I'll paint them with "alclad" chrome.



I have also scratchbuilt new "grilles" for the openings in the front fenders:

Made a new "nose" for the decklid, shortened the parallell-bar for the steering and scratched a new shifter:

I know these late 50's VW didn't have the vent-inlets in front of the doors, but it looks cool and this is not a factory stock, so here's my take on the subject:

Sorry, but you wrote above that you would use Alclad.
I didn't know Liquid Chrome Pen. Where do you find it ?

That's true, but I just found out about those chrome-pens and wanted to try them out instead Wink

I bought the Chrome-pens on Ebay but they can also be purchased straight from www.molotow.com and their webshop.

I know, but the problem is actually the camera, it makes this look a lot worse than it is. When looking at it live you cant see the ghostlines and the paint is OK. Also, this is kind of a "rat VW" so the paint is not supposed to be 100% perfect. Wink
