I just kind of prefer the flat rear panel look :) And I do want to keep some mk1 in this thing instead of just turning it into an imitation Aussie moke.

And heck no.. a wide body kit is never going to be even considered! ;) I want taller tires for a bit more off paved road ability... not a racer look! I hit an imperfection in the road (driving along a windy back road, came around a corner and it was as if the road had in one line sunken making almost a short hard edged curb across the road) and I thought for a moment I had just blown both of the little 10's on the front of the moke... thankfully everything turned out fine.

Plus, Have you thought what that thing is like to park? And, how long do his wheel bearings last ?
At least can add up

That thing has to be close to square dimensions wise with tires that wide :)
