Hi Griffin
Looks great, plenty of fun to be had there.
cbJohn is the bloke to talk to about panels. He can make a windscreen frame and probably other panels. They are fairly simple of course and a good sheetie can make them if you have the measurements.
I like the LH front guard. They aren't supposed to have framework like that, someone did some great work in the past.
You have beetle running gear and probably a beetle chassis. CBs didn't have heater tubes in the channels or heater control cable tubes. Many people use a late IRS chassis but some like "original".
You'll need a front "firewall" and heater channels no doubt. Buy the very best you can get (thickest). The cheap ones are very disappointing. Then pull the tubes out of the channels and weld up the holes. Lindsay Wilson made his own channels, they came out really nicely, perhaps you can too?
Good luck, and if you need to know anything just ask.
Cheers
Tony

thanks Tony, back on it this weekend and will go see John next week with a few pics and see what he has...
will be on a beetle pan, not to phased on originality though the landrover windscreen and beetle steering wheel need to be replced so it atleast looks correct, will be using 5x205 wheels in black with some black hubcaps etc.
ideally irs pan and 1600 TP motor (will use the motor from my splitty and put in a bigger motor for the split)
cheers

Ko418 update


Lots of progress, lots of panels from the fabulous John at kelfab
Now on a later irs pan with disc front
Chopped out all the rust, and most of the LHS
New front guards, front, and lhs fitted today
Looked pretty bad for a while but looking more like a car now...
