I think squeezing another window into the factory bug proportions may give too short a rear deck to match up with the rendering, but once you have the pieces you can hold it up and see. I think you are going to have to cut this thing at the waistline (bottom of the windows) and graft the entire upper half (including door tops) from the model A, with plenty of chopping and blending to join the two visually. Nothing about the roof or side window lines can be from the bug, right? The front windshield looks like it could be bug-based. LOTS of work but it will be really cool if you can pull it off.

Do you plan to do a full frame chassis? Here's a build you may be interested in where the guy is doing a mid-engine bug using an ecotech: http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversion...id-engine.html
