Awesome. I have built tunnel case ones but never a split case. Always wanted to try it.

I got a 51 case but I think I'm going to save that for last.
Next I'm doing all cable brake stuff, riveted brake pads, bearings, drums, then I need to find a set of 16" wheels.
Then the body work which I would love to have you guys do it but it won't be until I have everything for that.
Hood (maybe a dude in sweden), decklid (over priced kafer nostalgia), front fenders (gerson hasn't made a set in years).
So i got some challenges ahead but its all good its just money. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Finally got it bolted in. Added a little Red to pay homage to my VW Mentor that paints all his cars this red. Plus some people will think, oh that must be some split bull shit thing. :-k :-k
