Car is back from the body shop, oddly the chassis ended up being in spec, so it was $380 of insurance I guess.

Some more big news, not very sexy, but really hot if you are a Californian car owner. This project is officially registered as a 1957 Bug!!!! For those of you in other parts of the world or country, in California you have to smog(emissions test) every car newer than '72 I believe. So, this car would have had to have been registered as a 2004 Porsche Boxster, having to be smogged every 2 years. Instead it will never get smogged, have lower insurance rates, and is all set for twin turbos!!!

Back to the juicy stuff, the boxster is completely stripped, very close to the deep cuts it will need to allow the bug to fit over it. Pics to come, sorry.

The whole area from the apron to under the dash is gone from the bug.

Today a set of KW V3 coilovers arrived so I can start to set up ride height.

Good to see you Panel, does this get your juices flowing?!!!

If I could just get paid for my sleepless nights....
