 You want to build a custom but you are not quite sure how to go about it. OK, grab your tools, a Way-2-Fast, a Volkswagon Bug, and lets get to work. First though a picture of what we are going to build.

 


 
Here they are, Way-2-Fast and a VW Bug. For tools you will need a Dremel tool with a cut-off wheel and a grinding wheel. You will also need some tape, JB Weld(or any type epoxy bonding putty), drill and small bit for drilling the rivets out of the bases. Don't forget a small file and sand paper also.


Drill out the rivets and take the cars apart. Don't drill through the car into your hand because I can tell you from experience that it isn't a happy feeling when you do. Don't lose the extra pieces because you may want them for the next custom project you do.

 


 
We will be stretching the wheelbase so grind off the tabs holding in the rear wheels. We will also need the firewall out of the Way-2-Fast.


Now take the front of the bug off leaving the window frame.

 


 
Toss the front into your pile of parts and pieces so you know where they are if you need it for another project. If you don't have a pile now don't worry. Once you get hooked you will need a box just for parts and pieces.


OK, clean out the back of the bug body and trim the back of the Way-2-Fast chassis so that Bug body fits cleanly.

 


 
To make the wheels fit the wheel wells we need to mount the axle under the chassis. Cut a groove for it where it looks right. Also make sure the firewall fits right. If it doesn't do a little grinding until it does.


Let's set it all together to check for fit. It is looking pretty good so far.

 


Now it's on to page 2.
