    This was my inspiration earlier in the year. Cole’s post on those campers reminded me of this.

    If you want your daily history lesson it’s pretty cool

    Maybe we could do a solar panel on the roof rack to charge up the 12V

    Thanks for your responses! That battery box is supposed to be sitting behind the rear seats but I like the roof rack idea 😉

    I tried to make it look simple but there’s really a lot more that goes into it than that!

    Our project is going full steam ahead and we are super stoked on the progress we’ve made thus far but we still have a long way to go.Bug explosion

    Yeah the VW guys said that that vehicle that will be launched in the US in 2020 and there won’t be a way to get those parts prior to 2020. Maybe after they start hitting the road and people start crashing them we could do a ‘body upgrade’ on one

    Haha I wish! but I doubt they’d go for that… especially since it’s technology that they haven’t even released yet. The motor that they’ve been talking about is from the E-Golf and the subsystems for that doesn’t look as adaptable to a classic body. snip

    I’m thinking about using this Double A arm rear suspension from Imohr that would allow us to have more freedom with the transmission placement and looks similar to what VW is using for their new chassis

    That’s exactly what we have been developing. We still would need the independent rear suspension to locate that rear axle. Would you recommend using a later vw chassis or something more expensive like a mendola suspension or similar. I’m looking at buying a 69 pan for my bug that we can turn into a rolling chassis.

    I’ve been in contact with VW’s silicon valley research facility about sourcing some batteries or maybe even a motor.

    Sounds like I’m going to have to change direction on my project this year away from the single cab but still have lot of cool ideas on where to take it. This racing support panel was just shown today at the LA Auto Showvolkswagen-i-d-buzz-cargo-motorsports-concept-1volkswagen-i-d-buzz-cargo-motorsports-concept-1 (1)volkswagen-i-d-buzz-cargo-motorsports-concept-1 (2)

    This is the platform VW is going to use to build 22 electric models off of by 2022

    So cool 😎 I think ‘17 years of uninterrupted production’ sounds good

    I second the GJ trash… Will you better just hitchup with the first one you find or better yet get one pregnant

    Buses are perfect for hauling lots of babies!

    I just talked with Nate at Wagon’s West and he’s super stoked on the project. He thinks that the Tesla transmission is definitely the way to go and it sounds like he was interested in doing something similar with his barndoor 23 😲 Said he might be able to sponsor our project on the IRS but I want to talk to you first John…
