I've been driving it for almost 3 years now. Took more than 5 years to get real tags on it, but I thought I'd update this with some pictures I snapped a few weeks ago.

When I'm in Tarija (my second home and office) this is my daily driver. Currently is about to turn over to 10,000 km since the restoration and rebuild.

Since it is a driver now, I've consolidated some of the before and after pictures in one spot.

Just saw this.
No heater. Mine had the original "Heater Delete" option.

Very nice Corvair !

What are the bucket seats that you're using ?

Sorry it took so long to reply to you on the seats. they are out of a Toyota Corolla. 90's version if I recall. And yes, they are quite comfortable.
