If it was like this but double cab, it had to be custom because the bodies weren't any longer than what you see in these pics.

I can't imagine that in a DC, the bed is too short. The gas tank is behind the bed bulkhead and engine extends a few feet under the read of the bed. It must have been really narrow and most certainly a custom job.

I'm in... this would be a bad ass SQ ride, interior all glassed and tweed you could do about anything I respect the keep it original theme though. I've never seen one of these before but now I'm google and craigslist searching my area. Not sure what I would do if I found one but I'm looking, ha.

Curious what the underbody plans are, what kind of stance will the Roach have? Factory height, adjustable bags, 4 red pumps and switches doin 3 wheel? lol.. either way, awesome project and good luck!

For now Roach is a mild drop. Adjustable beam and drop spindles up front stock width and the rear is Beetle swing axle without the reduction gears. About a 4" drop all around. There is a good chance I will get a 2" narrowed beam for the front at some point. In the future, I may bag it but doubtful. I use this a truck still. Keeping the stock wheels and pretty much everything else as well besides the audio, trans and engine. I'll be taking this on the salt flats at least once to race.

If you want to see a bagged Double cab, look up the dumped pumpkin on youtube. KCW built that beast.

More updates.

I decided to hit up the seats.

Blasted the frames and then painted them a while back. Wife was not too happy about this part.




Over this weekend started to get the seats all sweet. As close to OG material and color seat covers. I want to do stock in every way but with tunes, big engine and dropped.

Finally some updates. We are about 2-3 weeks out until the truck is ready for assembly. The DC is at my friend Mike Carnell's shop So. Utah.



The Wheels


The Gates were pretty haggard but they're getting there.


The sides and wheel wells have been completely replaced.


Building the engine in my garage. Waiting on a couple of parts for final assembly.
