It'll be interesting to see how the front drive works with that double curved axle.

That's a sweet hotrod, but how exactly does the 4wd work up front?


I am definitely mimicking these seats for my heep, but with a tad more padding.

Love it!

I didn't see any mention of the 4x4 being functional (unless I missed it), might just be there for show. Could probably use a CV joint if it is functional.
