Thought I have best get round to making another record of what has, or hasn't, been done on my Volksrod over the past too many years.

Thanks........but don't look too closely  ::) ;D

Yes, I should have considered incerting some lamp nipples (for want of a better description) and I probably would next time.  But the job was daunting enough as a first step into the black art of buggy body repairs.  I imagine I'll mount them through the original glass on the inside edges of the wings.  Also means the bolt should be well clear on the tyres when I make a hard landing  ;D ;D

Volksrods are out there.  They were, and still are quite popular in Yorkshire.

Nearly, but on the top/flat section, to keep them vertical.  The nipples would have been set into the wing, but nearer the bonnet, like on a GP etc.

Phew! it's looking really neat and nice to see you are on it.

And that rear area with the curvy hoops looks good, is that 38x38x3 RHS for the frame....

 :D :D :D :D :D ;-)up ;-)up

Thanks guys.

" is that 38x38x3 RHS for the frame...." 
Stop getting technical with me Peter, what's RHS?  I thought it was Royal Horticultural Society, but I think I've got the wrong RHS :D    Something, something, steel I guess  ???
It's 40x40x3, or that's what it was advertised at, and 40x40 plastic end caps fit nicely  ;-)up

A few bits added, indicators, fuel cap and wiper spindles, a few dash switches.

Not the best of paint jobs, but it's not finished, and I have seen worse.  :D
