Very nice styling of the dash. I like the shape of the glove box.

here with diffuser and radiator fan. Size came from HYUNDAI ACCENT (99 -) 1.5i . Worked ... It was bought by a diffuser with a fan. Did mount a radiator and a tidy job of the hood. Brackets to the heatsink using "branded" by an unknown car.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but it looks like you might have some kinking (or wrinkling) and oval deformation of the roll bar tube. I'm sure you know that weakens the bar. Any chance you tried bending with the bar somewhat heated and the tube filled with dry sand? I have read this might cut down on the amount of deformation. I have not tried the technique for myself.

Very nice work on your build.

The tube is bent cold, thick walls and the sand is not needed. But even with a thin wall of sand does not help to bend to 90 degrees (breaking).

I wish that would be in Ukraine, there were more people who build Locost.

I'm just guessing... Is orange your favorite color?

The paint and the fabric look good!

I wish more people in my town were building Locosts. At least we have the Internet, and people around the world building Locosts who share what they've done with the rest of us. Thanks for posting.
