This is Osin’s Hot Rod VW Bug. Great little project as small as it is it went together well.

I even used some sawing technique I saw in one of Udris’s videos. For example item #3 is 5/16” wide and of course I did not have that width so I used my table saw and measured from the rip fence to the blade 5/16”. Since the board on the other side of the saw blade was so close to the blade I hot glued a bigger piece to the one I want to cut to keep my fingers out of that blade. That technique worked very well and I will use it again.

Any way I did enjoy building this VW. I painted with acrylic paint and sprayed with glossy polyurethane.

Thanks for lookin’

This is wonderful. I love the Osni VW and it is fun to see what you have done with it. Thanks for the tip on the hotmelt setup for making thin parts on a table saw. That is brilliant.
