Here's some pics of the shitrod I've been building. I made it shitty on purpose. Of course it looks all shiny and new in the pics, but up close it's shitty! :twisted: And more shittiness will be done before it is all finished up. It's farther along than shown, but I was too busy trying to get it driveable for the show last weekend to take any more pics.

I had a few spare minutes the other day and glued in the weather stripping on the passenger door. Made a big mess with the black death elephant snot glue.

Still holding the 12' stuff, but I got the pile behind it moved out so I can at least roll it a few inches now.

Lumber is all gone now. I got the engine in and running, still needs a little tune up. Had to replace a bad generator. The exhaust is painted and baked, waiting to be installed. I cut another windshield today and broke it. Installed it anyways and cracked it some more. The rear and quarter windows are installed. Headlights and tail lights are mounted and wired. All electrical is finished, I think. Still need to check the wipers and make some shorter arms and blades. Rear deck lid has been modified to single hinge. Needs some welding and paint. I'm almost ready to test drive the thing.

I got the door windows installed saturday. Also did the body and paint work on the rear deck lid. Mounted it today but still need to figure out a latch system. Muffler is install and seats are finished and ready to slide in. I ran into some wiring bugs today while checking systems. The turn signals aren't working but the eflasher does. Did some custom wiring to add a third brake light and back up light. Getting so close, but so far way. and finally some pics...

Got plenty more done throughout the week. All that is left is to find a suitable horn button, make a taller shifter and distress the paint job. here's more pics.

The cracks didn't show in the photo, its really broken. Today I distressed the paint to finialize the shittiness of the ShitRod. I also made a taller shifter with a piston handle. Hopefully I'll get another windshield cut tomorrow.

And those big 'ol eyes...the better to see you with :twisted:

Nice!
You should ditch those vw logos, paint some in there and sand them like your stripes.
Hmmm cog logos!!! I can cut you some stencils ;)

Those logos are painted on. I just didn't get around to sanding them down before I laquered the seats. I guess I could still do it.
