Default Re: Type 3 VolksRod

Glad you all are liking the project so far. The tailight will be staying on top of the fender and it will be a stock, all red, early Type 3 taillight lense. The stock lense (as opposed to the European flat lense) gives it a little more fin-like appearance and fits with the rest of the car.

The rear valance will be reworked a little to even out the gap to the re-positioned decklid, but nothing else.

As for flipping the taillight....just doesn't work for me. Besides, a big chunk of the lower half of the fender is going to be wrapped with a bumper of some sort. The bumper will also cover some of the rear valance panel.

I am trying to keep a few things about the car (granted, not very many) obviously Type 3 so that someone that knows Type 3s might recognize it for what it was. But I am hoping to really confuse the rest of the world.
