PROGRESS!




Got a few new progress shots on the roadster. The lower firewall panel has been replaced with fresh metal. Note the tasty bead that has been added.  


As you can see, the trans tunnel is also coming along and the period sixties Hurst 4-speed shifter has been installed. We're still working on pedal placement and the trans tunnel will be trimmed a bit to make as much room for the go pedal as possible. We're also looking into fabricating newer and smaller clutch and brake pedal arms and pads.

SEAT REFERENCE

Found a great website with an excellent selection of potential seats for the roadster.
http://www.cobraseats.com/classic.asp.
The model above is called the classic and has been in production since the sixties.


FLOORS AND COLOR REFERENCE

More progress is being made on the floors. The trans tunnel is being fabricated and the Hurst Shifter is in place. Meanwhile, we're beginning to plot out the custom radiator for the roadster. On another note, I found an interesting color reference in the fifties VW colors. It's called Strato Silver and it has a nice tinge of blue-ish turquoise to it.
