Post Newbie from Brazil in first project.
Re:: Bubble 70   

Hi volksrodders.... My name is Marcelo, i'm from Brasil.
I have a Vw 70.
My Volks was to be a collector carriage. Exactly it having all original, I decided to make a Volksrod with it. Then I started to look sites on the subject. I found this forum and I liked the community very much.
I started to learn with the projects of the others and decided to make one. I am making the basic one. I bought the kit of the Pegleg in the end of the last year. Not yet it arrived. Already I am in final phase of the carriage.
I go to only make the basic one. I find that the only modification will be the back tires that will be bigger. The interior will be the same. E the exterior will be of the same color. It cuts that I made I am simple. I only took the excess.
In respect to the lighthouses and arrows I am still searching prices and as to install.
It would like knowledge what the forum finds of my project. After all it is the first time that I make. Debtor for the attention of all.

I found difficult to cut in curve with the emery, because he was of seven counts.
the cut was good one for first time.
I go to make more rightness to stay well.
