This was a lot of work to finish it and it turned out perfect. The new built chassis as posted earlier was completed with a NIB bodyset. The chassis is from a new parts only and no repro's. I already had a restored bodyset from KoenC but decided to go 100% new and used the NIB body. It was sprayed with Tamiya paints, decals added, chrome striping and a PUR glosscoat. The finish is absolutely perfect with no dust partikels and no polishing needed. Panellines were painted and the roof was left partly open. My brother ownes a 1967 beetle and he said this can not be done with an 1/1 roof but what the h*ll, it looks nice and different. The windows were polished because they had some marks from laying in the box. The rear lights were painted with decanted TS claer red an orange. Use then because the paints is much thinner then acryl or enamel. The exhaust was painted chrome with subtle heatstaining and the driver received some sand weathering. The chassis was lowered so that the suspensionarms are horizontal. Front suspension was shortend in the demper(put rings in the piston so suspension movement is smaller) The black bumper is a real NIB one and the rims are chromeplated originals. Okay you see much SS so it might be boring in the end but I really like this!
