Default The V-Dat project (720)

This is my first project in a several years, just getting back into building minis. This is my daily driver, so i will post as i go.

The ride: 1984 720 long bed

the reason why the project got underway early and the front clip came first.


front gutted of all crushed parts and inner fenders (didnt need em anyway)



Geo metro brake booster and shortened stock booster bracket



280z water pump and painted pullys


7" day lighters, trailer turn signals, and temporary mesh grill (straight from the masonry isle at lowes). this got me by until i finally decided what to do to the front end.



now for some fun. VW core support and bumper mount


fender moc up.



core done, fender and hood ready to start welding.



Fender welded.











more to come after this weekend

this could be pretty damn cool. I wonder about the body lines though. I guess it's a fairly easy fix if you can graft the front in like you are doing.

I'm not one to tell you what to do to your truck, but are you sure a "rat rod" interior fits a 720 with a jetta front end? lol

Curious about this too. If you can get them to flow correctly though, it'll be sick.

Nice build! I'll be watching this one.

Never seen that done before! Keep the pics coming interested to see whats in store. Im not a huge fan of the VIP or stanced looking vehicles but I think that style may be perfect for your truck.

Thanks guys! The body line issue will be an easy fix. Will be a Z shape where its welded.


And im not a fan of stanced look either.

Awesome. Great stuff man.

I love this look:


I could see my next project being all white truck with a black front end. Maybe flush look hidden bumper.
