    Though the concept is good, I question the execution on this one. As Howard points out, that door is seriously sagging, not a trait a bug is known for! Also, that cool little velocity stack frenched into the rear cowl looks neat, but it won't last long if this thing is driven. The bug engine/transaxle moves around quite a bit when driving, even with semi solid mounts.
    The lack of a door handle tells me its nor finished yet.

    Speedway Motors sells a bolt-on kit that relocates the torsion beam.
