Remember...superb aluminium bodywork...with
120 louvres,... not just
Here is a selection of
pre-cut, pre-formed sheet and sections for a barrel-back body. The only
pieces that differ with a beetle-back body are the upper rear raised
internal panels, the lower rear internal panels and of course, there is
no flat rear panel. This is our standard.
N.B. For the avoidance of doubt, Kit 001 does not include a
dashboard. This has always been an option, and is shown within the
options list at
Currently, only the "Aero" (raised or humped) scuttle
may be fitted with an aluminium circle polished dashboard. The flat
topped scuttle may be fitted with a solid wood dashboard, we supply a
solid elm dashboard for this, but there is no glove box.
The following 29 photos show a barrel back body/kit. The beetle back
chassis is rounded at the back end, with a different rear upper grp
cover. The side panels are louvred at the rear in "Morgan style". All
other aluminium components are identical, as of course is the chassis
forward of the rear swing arm location.
These photos shows
the standard of aluminium panelling undertaken in our workshops.
Complete panelled chassis are available now as a "starter" kit.
These four shots show bonnets loosely fitted, Aero scuttle with circle
polished/engine turned dashboard, and detachable front louvred panel.
The bonnet panels sit down precisely once the spring catches have been
fitted after the main side panels have been riveted and bonded on. The
glove box area has a grp glove box that can be fitted in as an extra.
The aperture has a hinged closing panel that neatly finishes off the
Close-up of the detachable front panel, behind which a 038 size battery
sits on a special tray.
Fitted electrics box with hinged lid. This box is bolted in position and
can be removed.
Left shot shows M8 riv-nuts into which the pedal box bolts which can be
moved fore and aft. Note the rotobroach cut holes around the riv-nuts.
Both of these upper deck panels can be removed for access. Note the
joggled panels either side of the raised electrics box lid, this enables
the lid to sit flush within the upper deck.
Left shot shows the detachable trim edging, cut to fit around the edge
of the scuttle. Note the black self adhesive velcro material that
protects the top chassis rail.
Shots looking fore and aft, right hand side of the chassis (UK driver's
side) Welded black plinth, set at an angle allows our reversing gearbox
to be bolted down. A side cover can then be fitted around the reversing
Detachable lower rear cover enables access to the swing arm.
Detachable to cover, enabling access to the rear wheel.
Detachable sloping cover. It can be seen that if all four detachable
panels are removed, there is excellent access to the rear wheel area.
There is storage room alongside both rear fixed panels, immediately
under the grp rear cover.
The laser cut rear most sloping panel is also detachable.
Left shot is a general view showing central cockpit area and access to
the lower storage areas. Right shot shows the detachable aluminium rear
bulkhead. The apertures are filled by hinged lids (not shown)
Left shots show the small detachable panel that enables the MSVA
inspector to inspect the lower seat belt mounting points. The right shot
shows the rear wheel area with all panels removed, including the rear
most laser cut sloping panel, on to which a spare wheel may be mounted.
These unusual shots beneath the hinged bonnet halves show 96 louvres.
The aperture to the left in the scuttle and the small raised welded
plinth takes the upper steering column. In the right shot can be seen
the fuse box protruding from the scuttle. The fuel tank sits directly in
front of the scuttle.
Beetle-back rear panel. Note alternative cleko pins and rivets at this
stage. The full length adjacent panels are louvred in "Morgan" style and
are joggled to overlap this panel.
Fully riveted rear panel.
Front louvred panel now joggled so it fits over the main side panel and
can be detached. It is fixed using flush riv-nuts.
Rear 8 inch louvres now give the rear bodywork a distinctive
look". Note the joggled edge.
