    My special vw kit car build

    Well I guess its time to share my build, so I also can get you guys help
    Know the most of the cars here are super sports cars, but im starting small.
    Both because of cost, rules in my country, and to learn som tricks.

    The donor is a 1970 Beetle 1500, wich will need some work when the body is finished.

    The body is a swedish kit from the 80's, its called Sethera, and where made in a very limited quantity.

    Some pics:




    And the process begins:







    Some swedish idiot have put all that shit on it. Proberly to make it fit to a twisted pan.
    Got it of and continued:

















    Flamingo, tape, filler and black bags where my friend to make a temporary template.
    Now it fits on the vw bottom, twist, and places where there where air between has bin corrected.

    Plan is to make doors next, and need some advice on the best hinges to that. They cant fill to much.

    Nice kit tried to get one of those into Canada once, looks like you know what your doing so far.
    I would advise fitting your windshield in before doing the doors (temporary) as the pillars are a weak point and twist. The windshield will temporarily keep our door opens in shape while you do the doors. IMHO
    It maybe a little soon but have to decided on a color for it ???
    Good Luck and keep posting.

    That could be a good idea. Even though they seem to be strong, and someone have installed a wood piece inside to temporary support.

    No color yet, it shall be finished with only the things needed to pass inspection (hopefully)

    From what I can see. It looks like you found a nicely made kit. Good luck with your adventure. I always liked stuff made with VW parts. It's also instering how there is still a ton of new parts around.

    Pictures from yesterday, where the bottom got a bit more reinforced to really be sure it bond with the "new" add on,
    + more from today on request

    Re: My special vw kit car build

    I love those old school VW kits. I've always wanted to build an Aztec7 as my first car but never got around to it but the ZL1 Camaro is close enough.

    Anyone have more info on this body kit? It looks like something out of an 80's cartoon.
