I spent yesterday cleaning and re-installing the interior. I stripped the seat down to OG fabric. Looks decent. I'm going to spend some more time stripping the door panels and rear seat.

The floor all fixed up with new seals and hardware.

Feel good to be driving this again. I can't believe that its my car.

My Pops just finished a 41 Ford Woody. 99% original wood and hardly any filler had to be used.

My daily driver. Its the size of a surburban. I really enjoy driving this car. The plan is to drive it to Moab to camp and ride bikes for the car show in April.

I've been tinkering on it every night. Its just about 100% I think. I hope all of my friends with volkswagens will let me hang out with them Smile Thanks JJ for letting pull this big rig into the shop.

Yeah, for sure the tires made it bigger. Its only supposed to have 7.10 or something. Those are 8.20 on there now...so like an inch in ride height just from the tires.
