I also have decided to modify the rear "frame" lower A-arms to make room for wider wheels.

As I'm building THREE different VW's at the same time progress is quite slow. But the rear portion of the frame has been modified and I've decided on wheels for it.

I will have to make a kick-up in the rear frame , but before that, I'll box the frame :



This engine will most likely be used:





Enough space for "biggies" in the rear:

If you are going to build it as a show van I say Yes, but if you going for a shop van I say No.
