This is a combo of video 1 & 2 . The contributors to the Indiegogo campaign were the first to see the videos, they were part of the perks that came with joining up. So after getting this build 95% done I went through the videos and re-edited them and will be making the build public.

Now it was time to do some sheet metal work around the foot areas. This is 18 gauge.

Here is #4. I made these out of some 2" x 1/4 thick flat stock.

Now in the videos 4-5 all those plates are made from 1/4 thick flat stock. Video 6 shows what they look like painted.







Now in video 7 I start to work on the steering. I did eventually change the tie rod connection point on the spindle.

Now it was time to start working on the body panels.



Some of the pictures below show I used angle iron to make brackets. That is what I used to brace on the rear panel.

In the process of doing the body panels I also worked on the foot wells.

I had to doctor these up because I didnt have the right stuff. But they turned out looking pretty good.

Oh man I feel bad, I for got that I started a build thread over here for this.
Its been little over a year since I got this done.

The final look was really nice. The engine is a 212cc moded engine. It can put me down the street at 40 mph.
