Beetle/bug Pickup project by tricky[_2_]
Hi all for a while now, I have been toying with the idea of making a beetle pickup for me to use for work. It would be more or less a 'standard' pickup design, but with a roof rack capable of carrying full 8x4 sheets . It will probably take me a year (or more) to complete.
