Thanks.I kinda like it myself. Laughing
The steering column is a modified tilt out of a camaro.
Had to take it apart and take a few inches out of it then put back together.
And a tilt column is a FUN job to do...... scratch

Tranny seems to work okay...goes through all gears Shocked
Wiring is almost complete(just need to get a speedo installed) Cool

Okay it's official I'm a certified VW owner now. Very Happy
Used a part from a Bic pen to fix a small problem today.... Shocked

Between last night and this morning got several things on order and should be in by friday...monday at the latest hopefully.
So maybe by next tuesday I'll be able to post a couple new pics that will make a serious change in the looks of the buggy.
