Cool buggy Jim. Where did you find that one :D ? Looks like it's ready for a nice motor to be dropped in.

Awesome! Hope you get to drive it this weekend! I'm still working on getting my adapters to work with my ghia discs. looks like I may have to grind between 1/3 and half an inch off the calipers :shock: . Is that too much?

1/2" seems like alot. but doesnt make sense.
If you have to grind that much off, youd think they wouldnt spin with them on?

Yea, they won't spin with the adapters on the wheel, they stop where the calipers are, looks like about a 1/3 of an inch will have to be shaved to get them to spin :cry: .

Thanx, My plan was to have it gel-coated silver metallic, powder coat the wheels all black & put much lager tires on back.
