    rear loops in place.
    only part of the build i really dont like.think they spoil the lines at the rear.



    looks better without
    seat base .this will be held down by velcro.that way batterie and air controls will be easy to access

    love the build i assume this is for someone else? is this what you do as a living, you seem to have a few fresh ideas to various problams which is refreshing to see, how do you bend your various sizes and radiouses of round tube, how about a seprate tutorial on various aspects of fabrication, some tube bending could start you off, keep up the post great to see

    hello stevie
    yes this and the pop are for others.
    just a hobby for me.pipefitter by day.
    obviously work gives me the back ground for bending tubes and fabrication.being a coded pipe welder for a number of years helps as well.
    at work we have to problem solve stuff on a daily basis and the quicker you find solutions the more money you earn.
    think that rubs of doing the custom stuff.
    also gives you an insight into really planning ahead.
    probably like lots of projects parts of this could have been done differently but building alone means you have to think of an idea and stick to it.
    luckily the only bits ive altered are the possitioning of the air ride compressor/valves due to not getting the batterie till late in the build and doing the front panels twice.
    that was more to lack of experiance/confidence in doing panelwork than anything else.
    going back to a previous post you can get away with lots more on cars like this as there arnt really any rules to follow.
    well there are some as some of the owners ideas wernt incorporated into the build because i didnt think it would suit.
    builder has the final say.lol

    as both these builds are coming into prep/paint time i wont be doing any real fab work for a bit.
    once both have gone im starting a tube chassis,d beetle with a twist and could do some tutorials then.

    some bits for the belts

    no pics of part of it,so try to describe how it works.
    bit on left has the bit next to it welded between it.
    this is then a very snug fit under the headrest and the seatbelt goes through it and back down to the fasterner.




    had a stainless trim ring made for the belt to come through.
    the other loop bit is a mounting point for the back seat harness.





    this is going to be how the final point of the belt gets bolted to the chassis
