Project Coffee Glider

Well it´s been a slow process the last 2-3 month, but the winter is around the corner and it´s starting
to get to cold to hang outside. So me and my buddy Patric is starting to sort out the electric system mess.

i have made some new door panels but i’m not satisfied. i think i’m gonna add some thing at the bottom.

Right now the car looks like this, but as soon as the electric part is done the fun stuff begins.

So i haven’t had a hobby car in 3 years, and if you are unemployed like i am, it is hard to find the money to buy a car. But with some help from good friends anything is possible.

So now i am the happy owner of a fenderless 1961 beetle with some unstylish 80´s modifactions.

So here it is.

It ain’t pretty 🙂 but it’s a good and solid and almost rust”free” car. Some idiots in the 1980´s thought it was a good idea to put a plastic panel over the dashboard, now it’s gone but there is some nasty holes that needs welding.

The car is converted to 12 volts, but the wiring looks really nasty, should be fun to sort out 🙂

As soon as i get the car to my buddy’s garage, then i will start taking out the interior, or whats left of it.
