Hello,
i keep the rear wings because i dont want to make it look like a tractor, i like the round a the end.
This way it looks like a 2cv, without wings it looks like a hot rod or something i don't like.

if i put th engine like on the sahara, i can not have wind from the front to cool, and also the weight is to much at the back, now i have a mid-engine who rides great, the weight in the middle is perfect

Nice color, really shiny.
You've got a licence plate on it?
Or was it just for a test drive on the road?

I would not put two fingers between the gearbox and the bonnet ... Very Happy

Also gas-tank is under the bonnet.

For a matter of weight up front, the gearbox is not empty .

thank's for the compliments but it's just old pieces of metal laying around... nothing to be proud of, just wanted something different but not radical , i wanted it to look like a 2cv , not like a hot rod.
Not to high, not to low , no bling bling pieces, just basics .
Chrome mirrors and inox wheelcovers on front is more than enough .

I hope in ten years it will still be a "neutral" concept , flashy colors don't last in time, maroon brown does( to me) , rat-look is nice but has a dja-vu effect (to me) and riding low is nice to but i like to drive normally and not be bored about bumps in the road. It was 8 cm lower in the beginning but at first attempt to drive out of the garage i was scrapping the concrete....yeah right, 15 minutes later it was 8 cm higher ....
