Hi there, current projects are a '79 devon and a mk1 golf 2ltr 16V...
Unfortunately for me I share a workshop with a friend who is also a vw freak and does restos and fabrication, so being surrounded by all these and needing a business promo vehicle I think a volksrod is gonna be a must.
Also friends with TKZDUB who is building an awesome volksrod and he really is inspiration for what can be done and legal so keep an eye out for what may come of this.

Finally made a start on my volksrod!!
Basically it is a beetle roadster pickup, running with a beetle front end, custom chassis thru to a type3 rear end. Im using a custom chassis as it is going to be stretched a fair bit and it is going to make mounting the type3 rear more straight forward too.
So at the moment I am cutting out heater channels. The chassis rails are 4X2 and have been folded and tacked together. Front end of the chassis has been 'z'd 4" and will be mounting to the far ends of the beam utilising the old frame head as mounts.
I'll chuck some pics up soon to give you an idea of how its gonna look.

Slowly getting the frame sorted.
Just sorting the final bits of the rear end.
Still need to give the rear crossmember some additional support so it can't twist.
I decided to try and keep as much room as possible above the engine free to give plenty of space in the pickup deck.
This has meant the shock towers will be moved and the chassis will be mounted from underneath, just going to flip the standard mounts on the beam. The front mount will be modified and will bolt to the crossmember.

More pics soon

Finally rolling!

Chassis sits at approx 90mm of the ground at the moment but will need to be raised to 150mm to be legal (scrub line height)

Bit more progress since the last post.
Chassis is a roller. Just needs a couple of things. Rear shocks which are going to be lever shocks. And the beam adjusters need to be welded in properly.
Once these are done then it can be checked by the certification man to make sure it's all good.

Body is all mocked up now and the final look is getting decided on.
A '37 Ford p/u cab back was used and it is perfect for the vw. The width is perfect and all it needed was a bit of shrinking to get more of a curve along the front edge where it butts up to the side panel.

Well a month after the last post here our whole world shook to pieces..

.. and finally after all this time i've started back into my rod

After the show the rod was a mess after being bare and in the rain. It was blown apart the other day and sent to the blasters so now its reassemble time.
Starting on patching rust holes and need to grab another door for a back panel.
Gonna try utilise lever shocks up front so I can unclutter the front end by removing the towers.
Bought myself an early xmas present in the form of a new welder so keen as to use the hell out of it!!!

As it started!!
