We need to model it in CAD and have it 3D printed... then paint as you see fit...

Looks like they're about 7 inches tall. The lower box is about 2 1/2 inches square by 3 1/2 tall. The dome is 1 1/2 diameter and 2 1/2 tall. I bought one and will see what I can do about printing it for 3-D replication.

Been on vacay, and trying to get the garage organized, so haven't got much done yet on the Spyder. I did cut out the grill and slats before my wife and I left.

Next week is Pagoda Hillclimb and I'll be working a corner Saturday and doing some family stuff Sunday, but after that I'll be posting more regularly.

In search of a transaxle person nearby so I can get the R&P and 4th gear changed out. If anyone knows anyone they can recommend based in MD or South Central PA please advise.

Geno's Aircooled Competition will do a trans for you. He's a VW drag racer, old school Elizabeth PA, basically Pittsburgh. That's all I know of. I can change bearings and synchros and gears, oh my. But I don't have the tools to set up a R and P swap.

Thanks, Danny. I'll check with Geno but it's kind of a haul.
