Yeah,I'm on good terms with the closest thing we have to a VW shop here,All Foreign.The owner's been alot of help on,well all my rigs.To tell ya true.
And I have an idea in my head,I'm just not to sure about the dimensions I've written down.
Though other then rem stock,I think I've found a good source of mat'l to build with.
