Love the Hot Rod style door/winscreen mods. Would be interesting to see what they are going to register it as. Hot Rod? VW? ICV Probably, but will need the guards on all 4 wheels, which will detract from the pretty awesome pose it is making at the moment.

This is being pieced together in Victoria somewhere (pretty sure its by a hot rodder but not sure who - I just found the pic online).

As far as rego it's not eligible for street rod rego as that only applies to pre '49 cars (or replicas of, like a fibreglass rod with a repro chassis), so either a modified VW or ICV would be my guess.

Picked up a proper bonnet for 20 bucks to replace the baja fiberglass one, extender beams when in and the white walls came and fitted, with the bigger wheel band for the rear.
