Default Fl@pper's Volksrodded 27T roadster

Hi all - Fl@pper from the UK part time worker madman and BIG hammer wielder

love the bugs i see on these pages the last few weeks so finally decided to register as i have a wierd idea but more to come later

I'm a big eared Pikey hot rodding Iron Maiden Fan who usually haunts seatcupra.net but have my own project on the go that the show n shine tintops just dont get

apologies to purists in advance on both bug and hotrod but hey a hotrod is individual in my eyes so i always do things the hard and wrong way

enough of the intro - i have a 1927 model T Ford roadster body (replica) mounting on a Reliant Scimitar (chopped) chassis with Ford rear end and an adapted beetle front end with a Rover V8 with twin superchargers going in on an auto box

all self drawn and built so far (long time) due to time an money but hey we learn more that way huh ?



the front uprights are now gone (almost) and that chassis tube has a lower tube from a beetle frame inside it now

makes a change from volksrods with ford fronts - told you i do things differently

will be adding mounts and plates for the upper soon with castor sat back as i'm widening the front by 5" and running the arms facing forwards

this place so far has enlightened my Vdub repsect loads - thank you and look forward to posting crazy plans ideas for ridicule in the future

heres my original idea but that was too easy as will be explained in full over time sorry about the dog he loves grease and grinder sparks - nutter
