Just finished this one....
As I said on Facebook. Greg! Dude!
Very nice! What color is that great metallic gray and whom is the manufacture?
Looks good...Who makes those pedal covers?
OMP racing pedals in Italy. Distributed by many here. Greg may sell them.
Here's an amazon listing
I cut the vw rubber covers off of mine. The many holes allowed me to re position my pedals for a better fit. Simple process.
I always wondered how easy it is to fill up all the way up the center of the car too.

I agree that the center fill gas cap is cool. However, unless I'm missing something, there is no "dog bowl" surround with drain on the filler neck, so driving in the rain would let water into the trunk.
Having owned a Spyder for 15 years I have a little experience with center-fill. Yes, some water will get in if you drive in the rain or wash your car. But which of you Californians will ever do either?
I did the doggie bowl with drain on my first car. It works and keeps it all out, yes. But honestly there isn't that much that gets in, even if you drive in the rain. Haven't installed the bowl on the new car yet after 2 years.
And if you tow, just blue tape over the whole deal and you're good.
Greg drills a hole in the bottom of the trunk and a small towel will get whatever may be around the filler neck.
DannyP I did notice more blue tape on a lot of cars going to Carlisle.
Greg, very nice, my only comment is that I personally do not like the way the fog lights or driving lights are mounted to the body.
It would be really nice if the mounting hardware was chromed somehow or looks more chunky ... or was imbeded in the body and did not show. just my 2 shekels.
Nah, he just has new optics, and newer bling, and even newer patina
To all of you that are drooling over Greg's recent build ...
This is my build and Greg has produced one of the best ever. And yes, the fog light mounting is my request, not Greg's suggestion ... in keeping with Outlaw/roadster positioning and hardware desires. Shipment is scheduled. Fun awaits.
A big thanks to Greg Leach, Vintage Motorcars of CA and Greg's gang for a great build, great responsiveness, and attention to every one of my desired details. And yes, a drain is being installed around the fuel filler cap, among other final touches, prior to shipment.
Finally, a special call-out to Troy for his counsel; a better SOC friend would be hard to find. Thanks for your recs, Troy.
Happy motoring, all.
Thank you, Robert. Best, Dave
Lane - I seem to never find enough time, but you are right. I'll monitor SOC for mountain events. I expect it will be a while before I make the Carlisle caravan. Thanks for the good wishes and encouragement! All best, D
Guys, hope all are well.
I wanted to let you know that my lovely Outlaw Speedster (Seal Grey, pictured above in this thread), built by Greg several months ago with multiple custom adds (A/C, all-wheel discs, center fill fuel with dog bowl and drain, interior lighting, kill switch, fog lights, sidewinder exhaust, heated seats, clear bra installed ... the list goes on ...) has been returned to Greg by covered transport for sale via his shop.
The car is PERFECT and has a grand total of 125 miles on the odometer. I am parting with this wonderful vehicle with real reservation, but will have Greg build me another with even further upgrades (Suby).
I have driven many a Speedster and Spyder build; never have I found a better builder than Greg and Vintage Motorcars of CA. Take a look at 'fit and finish'; we all will agree one doesn't find better than Greg's builds.
The car arrived at Greg's shop in Hawaiian Gardens last week and is drive-away flawless. I part with my Speedster with a heavy heart and the hope that one of my SOC colleagues will give it a new home. Please reach to Greg for info you need. I also can send more photos if serious interest.
Thanks to all that supported my original build and to Troy for his referral to Greg ... so good a referral that I'm signing up for the next build!
