I think I would have run those on the top side of the pan. Your choice, just watch out for speed bumps, curbs and such.

Well made some hoses today. The fuel lines are almost done. Now to start on the front beam and then I can close up the hood. Then it will feel like I'm getting somewhere on this thing LOL.

Life has been busy, and not much time for the Manx unfortunately. But I got out in the garage and put one side pod on. Probably should have waited, but I needed to get some visual inspiration.

Started on the pedal assembly. Added gussets to the brake and clutch pedal. Now just have to reassemble them with the painted TURBO pedal.

Some more progress. The gas tank is in after some clearance issues were fixed, on the front passenger side of the tank. Next I had to see how it looks with the top on. So on goes the windshield frame. I never liked how laid back the windshield was, but had no clue at what angle it is to be set at. Well after some searching the only thing I could find was info on the kick outs roll bar. It said to match the windshield frame angle of 18 laid back. Well I lined mine up with the parting line of the hood and dash , which is 33 ( ouch). So that has to get fixed. But the top looks good on it, even if it is covered in bubble wrap lol

Buggy has been on the back burner through the holidays, but plan on getting on it now. First got to get it back on the ground and rolling. Then tackle the rest of the wiring. There is a VW show around March that would be awesome to take it to. So that is my new overambitious goal lol.

Well I brought some Bluetooth speaker for the buggy. After placing them around the buggy and playing music from them. The best place seems to be the one place I don't want to put them lol. But now I see why a lot of old buggy's with side pods that them there.

On another note, I got some cool hold downs for the roof.

Side pods cover the back side perfect. If I did it again I would move them down about an inch. Totally forgot about the wiring tube, but it just clears.
