    Fabulous car & great pics.

    Probably the nicest 2 pattes on earth.

    Félicitation, cette deuche est une véritable tuerie, et ton trophée est amplement mérité.
     
  3. Well deserved trophy. Can we see some more outdoors photos please?

    I only found this thread a few weeks back. Don't know how I missed it, but this morning I finally made it all the way through from the beginning. What an amazing journey from when you dragged it home. Beautiful workmanship.

    An outstanding example of automotive artistic expression! The cool factor of this car, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 12 plus. Mika your car needs to be on the show car circuit in the U.S. I wish I knew how to help you make this happen.

  19. Mika, your car turned out great! You did a first class job on everything.
    Your little girl will really like riding with you in it.
    I'd like to see a photo of you standing next to the car for perspective. You look pretty tall and must have to fold up to get inside it!

    with respect for the original , all in sheet metal of 8/10 mm .

    a sheet metal with a 90 degree bend on one side and molding a bead roller .

    followed by a spot weld
