    from position on first photo move towards center 6-8 " on each side to where they don't quite get in the v patern of the hood I think they would look about right somewhere in that area. Just my thoughts, king of wher the shocks are now only in front of them.

    Thanks! Got back in time to sand bags some things and then evacuate. We were not allowed back in for a week due to all the trees and power lines that were down. Fortunately, we only lost what was in the freezer. A few homes were badly damaged but most got lucky when it came to trees falling. Also, landfall timing changed a bit and it came in at low tide instead of high tide as predicted. Thanks for asking.

    Well, i tried the Model A lights in every position imaginable but did not like any of them or there were interference issues. This is what I went with along with a single motorcycle light on each spindle (not in photos). I installed an amber led in the lower sockets of the vw buckets also. These lights along with the lights in the bull horns will serve as running lights as well as blinkers. As an added benefit, the headlights actually meet the minimum height requirement in my state.

    Finished the wiring on the headlights today. The first photo is just the LEDs, second dims and third brights with the spindle mounted lights also.

    Some Indian motorcycle teardrop lenses might look good.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    More nice work sir! That's good to hear you didn't lose much at all. Those storms get crazy quick. I never realized how bad they were until we hauled campers down to Katrina. A year later we hauled more down and got caught in a hurricane. It wasn't near the size of Katrina, but bad enough when you're trying to get in and out.

    Just my humble opinion.. (and we all know what opinions are like right? Yep they all stink!) but those headlights are just so... "in your face". no pun intended.. I think the lights in the horns are the only ones with a good "fit". They are there but don't detract from the overall look.

    Hey! You asked so I answered. It's the only part of the build that made me pause and even the engine cover didn't trip that trigger!

    Thanks for your input. If you have any concerns that I can't take a critique, take a look at one of the first responses that I got on this thread

    "Well welcome to the site and please take this whatever way you wish, but you have put your project out there for all to see and comment on.
    What the heck are you thinking putting the front axle and wheel way out in front od the VW cab ? You are not only chopping the hell out of it, you are removing what leg room there was in it,(the cab). Wouldn't it looked better with a IFS set up with the cab set up like original over the front wheels ? You could still have the mid mounted engine etc and especially as you mention in the video that you will have the original rear tray built to look sort of standard.
    I just think you have started with a cool idea but got completely lost when it came to the front and where the cab should be. I believe you are going to create a bloody ugly mismatched bodied vehicle.
    Of course this is just my opinion and it is your vehicle to build the way you want. I just think there is too much ugly coming from the modern car designers now without adding to the mix by taking a cool VW truck and F..King it."


    So regarding the hood...is the pause due to the fact that no hot rod should have a hood

    I remember that first post when it was new...
    And I love all of your "rides" - you have a great imagination and know how to make it all come together.

    I was merely struggling with someplace to blend in the headlights you've chosen. I knew you could handle the critique, unless I caught you on a "bad day" kind of thing. I just hated to complain and offer something more constructive.

    But thanks for listening!
