Overland to Oz

This bad bug was built at the shack to tackle a 33,000km challenge, and overland expedition to Austraila via Europe, Iran, Pakistan, Nepal, Chine and several other countries.  It even made it to the Everest base camp.  The first beetle ever to do so.
We began the conversion with a rust free US import beetle.
Expedition racks were fabricated, along with wheel carriers, tentage stowage, and fuel storage.  Heavy duty side bars and underbody protection were also added, as wel as a full internal roll cage and a huge list of other extras.
Picture below shows it on set at SKY TV studios.
