I did the Jas irs conversion but leaving the swing axle torsion bar tube in and cutting the horns off around it offsetting the top and bottom cut, they aligned well when the irs ones were fitted and welding in was simple.
I made a jig from the torsion end plate bolts to the 2 large frame horn bolts to ensure alignment.

Hi From me..

A MK 2 unmodified RAT with even rarer original side pods... My first buggy in 1192 was a MK2 Rat with side pods. So have a soft spot for them.

Although I did the unthinkable and cut the front wings back and cut the side pods in 2 and threw them down the local tip, but it was 1993.

Got to ask, why Splinter?

Gotta be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reference. Splinter was a rat.

Bit after my time. Never seen them

Brilliant top end colour. 1967 is/was a great year for VW chassis.

That front end ‘radiator grill’ is asking for either Splinters name or teeth.

Plans are in the pipeline for the grill, not name or teeth related unfortunately Hugh!!
