Default Re: VW Bugtruck pickup

Got a couple hours in. Dumb stuff but it all needs to be done. Like capped the front edges of the bed.

Those are done and now the bed is ready to go to the sand blaster....finally. Also installed a support for the back half of the bed. I hope it doesn't interfere with the motor. Shouldn't....

Pulled the beam out to install adjusters and to do a little boxing on the cut off shock towers. Here it is in front of a stock width beam.

More welding to go and soon I'll start hammering out the metal to get it straight before the bodywork. Here is one of the step sides completely boxed. Again, more filling and welding.

Started stripping the driver side fender to fix a couple stress cracks in the fender lip.

Until I start on the bodywork, the progress will be rather mundane. If there is significant and noticeable differences, I'll update my thread as they come.
