VolksRod - Finally most of the pictures are back

Berichtdoor radiotrib » zo sep 13, 2009 19:57

Apologies but some of the photos on this thread were lost in a server crash but most of the build photos are back in place now ....

I'm English, and I can't write Dutch, so my apologies ... but this is only a short introduction. I'm old. I have no skills, I work on my own and I have only 20 hours a month ... so the whole thing is taking shape very slowly ... it's going to take a long time ...

It may work, it may fail, it may look good to some and bad to others, but its something I just have to do, here, now. I want this whole project to be street legal from day one so I write to the nice guys at the RDW regularly and they help a lot. With their help, I think this thing could work ...

Well ... I think it would be very rude of me to expect everyone to try to understand my English just because I'm too dumb to learn to write Dutch, so I guess I'll just post pictures and let y'all see and decide for yourselves what's happening ...

Hi Quint and Carl .. I decided to show and tell ...

Day 1 ...

Just a resauration or another kind of project without a roof?

I can speak it a little (well, enough to shop, not well enough to get a girlfriend) .. and I read as best I can. Most times I make some sense out of it. I read the whole of Quint's thread (Quibus) .. slowly, but I got there :)

Hey Kevin, nice of you to show and tell. :D There are not that many Volksrod projects going on, so it's always nice to see someone posting one.
Do you have any pictures or drawings to show what it's going to look like when it's done?

Will this do for while ???

Not such a good photochop, but at least an impression of the direction I'm going ... For the rest I'd prefer to keep it under covers until I know if I'm good enough to make it happen ... Talking about it too soon will make me look like a real idiot if/when I start screwing up :)

I get the idea. It would be nice if you could keep the shape of the roof as perfect as in the Photoshop. That would be the most difficult about the build. If you can make that happen, you can do anything! :respect:

Oh I intend to keep the roof looking exactly as it does in the photochop .. one way or another !!! In fact, the photochop was done using the construction lines I first drew onto the body, so the image represents almost the exact plan I had in mind when I marked it up.I just hope the final thing looks a bit better than the photochop (and I hope I don't have to cut up the loods as much as I did in the picture either ... hehehehe).

I intend to leave the entire chassis as nature and Ferdinand Porsche intended it to be. There may be a minor tweak here and there, but the idea is to retain the standard wheelbase, axles, transmission/engine layout and chassis, and modify the body to LOOK like the axle is extended forward ... that way the RDW rules apply, and I can just take it for an APK at the end of the project ...

I'll post step by step photos of the successes and failures so you can all see what I'm trying to do and laugh with me when I farque it up ... and I will .. probably several times.

And Rusty .. if you're in Den Haag, you can always take a ride out to Boskoop with me some times and see what's happening in person .. The same invitation is open to anyone who wants to drop me a mail and come play with saws and welders and things

don't try to cut up a kever with your balls ... the kever will always win
