Yay! It’ll be good or bad, but no chance in hell it’ll end up in the middle.

I should’ve taken a pic from the start, as the wiring was an absolute mess. Kept blowing fuses and the lights didn’t work. So, I’ve begun redoing the wiring.

I cut the apron off to start forming one to match the profile of the trunk. I’m reluctant to cut the bumper brackets off, thinking I may use them.

Gotta love Georgia. Sheriff came by the house this morning and filled out my VIN check paperwork. Got it insured and as soon as I get to the DMV, I'll have this baby tagged and on the road.

Much better without the bumper brackets. Whats that deal to the right of your patch panel?

Are you going to run any kind of rear fenders or keep it open wheeled.

That's a strap for the carbon can. Weird 70s emission jawn. I'll keep it open wheeled, but I'm always looking at it thinking fenders could be neat.

You can see the bottom of it in this pic:

They used to do that here in KY, but they have gotten away from it pretty much. They make you bring it to them, unless you know someone that will come to you.

Something else to note that will come into play more later: As in a previous post, the rear fender wells were trimmed out in the front.

This crappy epoxy cardboard job here:



It was necessary to cut out and a little forward of the fender well to make room for the 31" street slicks. The rear end is 72 Chevelle, and the VW body mounts with its stock locations to the Chevelle mounts. I figure that's the biggest driver in the decision for where to place the rear end(axle). However, this also allowed the engine bay to remain fully in tact, left room to mount the JAZ fuel cell, and it gives the car a smaller wheelbase. All this make it a little more difficult to run fenders, even if i wanted to.

I just used my lunch break to get this thing tagged and registered. All legal. Georgia is great. Sent off for an HP Quadrajet rebuild kit from Cliff's. Hopefully it can get this thing sorted out. Right now it starts pissing fuel, even with the fuel pressure turned all the way down to 3psi.
