Volksrod - front suspension

The front suspension will be a combination of 2 parts:

1. a dropped beam axle, comming from a Ford A sedan:

2. the original Käfer front axle:

As the original front axle will only be used as the base for the dropped axle, I had to cut it up and scratch some support parts:

Now that everything is glued together it looks like this: Volksrod 025 copy

When both suspensions are painted I can glue them together and hopefully then you will have a better view of what I'm going for  Knipogen
