    Agent Thor - Tribute

    Agent Thor – Tribute

    Building a ‘Tribute’ to one of my favourite Ed Roth cars, the Road Agent.
    This is going to be my take on the original car, not a copy or clone.

    Based on a 1971 Beetle and going via the Rebody/RAV route.
    Stock: engine, box, chassis, trans, axles & suspension & body will be bolted to the stock/LWB chassis/floor pan.

    Started mid-February, up until now, standard teardown and rust repair stuff, but starting to really start the actual build now, plus finally sorted out my RnS password!
    Body will be ‘traditional’ plaster spit-wads.
    Already have two domes, one clear & one fluorescent green one.

    Often thought you could quite easily build the Globehopper on a Reliant three-wheeler Chassis.

    I've got Ed Roth DVD of the Globhopper build, if your interested?

    agreed, but i think you'll need more friction discs for a satisfactory 'shock absorber' i've seen towing anti sway bar discs used in the past and they use 2 friction discs. neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Agreed, and I've got various materials I'm going to trial and a couple of 'separation' discs to throw in-between.
