Thanks a lot John, that carry’s weight coming from you buddy! we look up to you guys man…kcw kicks so fucking much ass it ain’t even funny! I’ve learned most of what I know about building kick ass VWs from hanging around these forums for the past dozen plus years!???? we just doing what makes us happy… resurrecting these rotten, smashed old cars and driving the shit out of them! Love our hobby and the killer friends I’ve made local and around the world all because of VOLKSWAGENS!!!
So my kombi…..I been railing on it 40plus (after) hours a week! I’m getting a bit burnt…like I always do on these stupid builds! Fuck it, I got my eye on the prize, and that prize is pretty fuckin badass!! I really should be working on my motor build but instead been trying to finish paint blends and “fauxtina” on the new metal. Picked up this rust finish shit a painter friend of mine put me onto… got it at homedepot, meant for Martha Stewart projects but pretty excited to play around with it!
Been talking with a local signpainter about re logoing it to, sounds like hes game! This is actually some of his work he did with rust paint….has iron oxide in it then u spray and activator acid and it blooms real rust in front of your eyes haha!
I’ll get some good shots of the paint blends soon.
In other news…..been insulating the piss out of my camper. Ordered a shwackload of dynamat type sound deadener off amazon and it should be here any day now…meantime been making a snowstorm cutting and fitting 1.25” R5 styrofoam foil coated insulation ? took 2 full 4×9 sheets and had maybe a square foot in scraps once swept up haha
It’s all just dry fit in there with pressure, no glue! Scored the backside of roof panels, shit snaps like drywall/gyproc easy! then ran 2” tape along a slightly open crack to contour shape worked great. Still has 1/8” till touches panel…..will all get numbered and popped out, dynamat the shit out of all the drum skin areas and wedge the foam back in…..it went from echo chamber to studio recording booth in short time….I didn’t want to have to take the panels out down the road….building this right from get go??
Disk brake mock up for beam width measurement, horn restored, glass in, pumpkin seat, dash jewelry, WB green face speedo clean up, switches in, weld blob trick on broken m3 screws in ignition switch….that was tricky!
Random shots….JbParticipantJuly 2, 2018 at 10:14 amPost count: 302JbParticipantJune 28, 2018 at 7:27 pmPost count: 302
The orage age flatback I had in the single…it’s a super dry 55 WB bus seat…I love the orange…gonna do the rear rock roll bed to match haha!
Had some rolls of cork/rubber tape, figured I’d line the engine shelf in between the ribs (might dynamat over whole thing now?)
Uber fuckin kombi kit time!
Cleaned up a patina Wolfsburg green face speedo, spun back the clock to zero and replaced gels, done…..”sympathetic restos” whatever that means are sooooo much less work haha

Been talking with a local sign painter about getting logos redone…What colours do u guys think? I’m leaning towards white with orange accents? Match the pimpin pumpkin orange seats?JbParticipantJune 25, 2018 at 12:33 pmPost count: 302
