I can't tell you the last time I've watched a YouTube video that was longer than 2 minutes that wasn't one of your videos.  Keep up the interesting work, I really enjoy watching how you solve issues. 

I also love the mentality of "you can't get these windshields anymore... So I'll just reshape all this to accept a flat windshield" like that's a normal, simple thing to do.

Thanks, glad you are enjoying the videos! Someone suggested that since the top was already damaged, why not chop the top. I found this tilt out glass intended for the rear of a vw bus.  It uses laminated glass, so good for a windshield, and will work with a 2" or so chop

A beat up rear hatch should not be too hard to come by, so I am thinking...cut out the lip for the glass and weld into the truck.  I already measured and the width is near perfect!

Repurposed VW hood latch is in place. Lots of metal work still needed.

Yeah, I couldn't get a video embedded the other day either. Any Mods out there know how to fix this?

Still a little photo manipulation here, but it is close to looking like this.

Cadillac hat with a spectre 4" aluminum 90 and a k&n filter.  Fits great but not sure it will flow enough air. Has anyone else used one of these smallish filters?  I read some reviews on it and people are using them on ls motors...any thoughts?

In reply to Ben_Modified :

I can’t imagine you’d notice any potential HP loss with that little of weight?

Are you heading over for Cruisin’ the Coast this year?
