Got the front frame rails capped up. Looking much better now!



Got started on doing some body work. Cleaned up the cowl area and filled in the vent on the deck lid. Body work is my least favorite part of building a car. I don't have the skill and patience to pull it off well. Just want to smooth out some of the seams left from welding.



















Ran out of primer while I was doing the deck lid, but wanted to make sure I sealed up all my bare metal. I had just enough self etching primer to seal up the metal and I threw some paint on. Still need to go back and smooth some things out. Threw the license plate light housing on there. The more parts I put on, the more and more stoked I get.

When I was picking up metal for the trunk I saw this perforated sheet metal so I used it for my grill. Really happy with how this turned out. Turned out better than I thought it would. Now I won't have to worry about the rad catching any stones.





I think I'm getting into the final stretch of being able to drive this. I still have a few more parts to collect, but getting real close!

Got the trunk floor in this weekend. I'll have to get another picture of it all complete. At this stage I needed to put in the couple little filler pieces on either side. But it's all done and painted now.



My fuel cell has a home now. Just need to strap it in. Eventually I will get a bigger cell, but for now I picked this one up cheap. It's about 30 litres, and I can fit a 20 litre jerrycan next to it.

Yeah it feels good! All my major fabrication is done. Just lots of little jobs now. A guy I know is putting on a car show on the 26th so I'm trying to have it drive-able for that.

She’s looking great, with lots of very cool details on a ride that just scream ‘VolksRod!’
