    Plan is to have motor and drum to drum transaxle ready to go when I arrive. Everything else will be done at the compound 😎

     

    Nico can confirm. Pan is nice

    BEF9EB19-7E47-448E-BC4B-936CE0D9CAB8I’m thinking of getting some Wurth undercoat for this thing. Since I’ll be driving it year round… have you guys ever used it on a car? Wondering how much I need to order…

    Pans are roughly 25sq ft. per side.

    Are you going to do inside & out? Fender wells?

    Franz and Wes both have used Wurth. They said it works good, bit over priced. Dries to a bit more on the soft/rubbery side.

    We used Rockit on Mike’s Baja about a year and a half ago and it’s holding up very well and still looks great. The kit we used was $200. More then enough to do everything. https://www.semproducts.com/product/rock-it-xctm

    We will build it if it comes.

    I like the look of the wurth stuff. Just under side of the pan and fenders.
