Well.....let's just say that this drawing has been my inspiration so far. Colour-wise we'll all have to wait and see siffle

Body put aside for now. Building the chassie in traditional early VW stance style here's the rear suspension:

Front axle, 2,5 scale inches narrowed, and suspension ready to be mounted to the chassies plate:

As always on the Gunze VW's , I move the shifter a bit to the left for it's correct "offset" position:

Why is the transmission tunnel so cracked :intero: ? It looks like a bad resin casting.

OK, so I might be something of a nerd when it comes to certain details, but I just love detailing my model kits. The ventilation slots in the package shelf are extremely visable through the window, so I opened them up:

Also tested the front seats, pirated from an old Esci set of the Renault 5 :

I grinded away the cast-in rails on the floor and then sectioned the stock seat-supports about 1,5 mm to make the front seats sit lower:

I had to cut away the headrests as they reached all the way to the headliner. I actually think the front seats look better without them....

You are right, they look better (more vintage). With the headrests, they looked more rallye-style.

Today I got some paint on the wheel-centerpieces which will later be glued into chromed outer rings. Paint is pure white with a "gentle touch" of pink pearl:
