  • really off topic

    I know there's a good number of motorheads here. And a bunch of hobbyists and DIYers. Seems to me somebody used to talk about making chain mail (was it Drazan?)

    I'm posting a link to a rather long build thread on a VW forum. How about making your own amphibious WWII VW out of an old Beetle? Using only models and pictures to guide you?

    The workmanship in this thread is absolutely amazing! No real professional metal working tools--just basic hand tools, a welder, ingenuity, and sweat.

    Take time to go through it if you have any interest at all. The craftmanship is amazing.

    The USA will not survive without another revolution. Soon.

      Thanks for that link AD. I'm one of those old school gear heads. That guy is a true artist. I know several body guys that perform extraordinary work with shaping metal, welding and restoration.

      Gotta love the WWII Halftrack that same guy owns that he has spare parts for.

              Do you know what the Chinese characters mean?
