WOW John, you've been very busy with your project (makes me feel like I've been slacking). Love what you're doing to it, and I can see you've been thinking ahead too. : ) Your cooling air intake set up is similar to how a Notch is laid out, except that I think you can set it up cleaner using parts of the old system (under the fenders), and build a duct under your grills for the air and water to enter. The bottom of the existing air boxes already have drains built into them. :O Have you figured out how you're going to "spring" the rear deck lid? You could use some donor parts from Jane1, and keep the VW torsion bars. Otherwise, you've got a little more work ahead of you.

Keep up the good work, and maybe I'll swing by after the VW Vintage Festival. : )
