Hi folks,thought I`d post a few pics up of my Konsul build.Some of the pics are a few years old so apologies if you`ve seen them before.Here`s a few mods I`ve carried out so far....fitted a 2.0L mitsubishi Sapporro engine/5 spd box.Fitted air bags all round,(running gear is stock apart from Zody diff swopped in).59 Caddy taillights vertically mounted! Batmobile style fin extensions.Floor has been cut out and front and rear "clips" joined with triangulated bracing.New floor/tunnel installed.(floor is double skinned for more strength) Cut the roof off,(Carson top to be made),the screen is now split! Jag headlight pods grafted onto front wings to give frenched headlights (anyone bored yet?lol)Homemade exhaust hooked up to o/s lake pipe. kustom grille fitted(originally made by a mate for his pro-sled,but I inherited it,modified it to fit the Konsul. Here`s a random pics...enjoy....

LOl,Bel you gotta get out more.Thanks for the positive feedback.I call them Marmite lights,cos you either love em or hate em.(and I have received some "negative" comments about them.Not a prob though after all if you post pix on a public forum you gotta take the good with the bad,lol.At least with the batmobile style fins I`ve dot a damn good reason to wear my cape and ski mask with the pointy ears on it,lol.Cheers bud.

The company I got the switches from(amongst other things such as kool speaker grilles) can be found here... www.wirthscustomauto.com The head guy is called Roy.Spoke on the phone to him a few times,he`s a good ol` boy.Excellent service.
