    Glad to see Bo has joined us. Sorry I didn’t introduce myself when u came by, I was all up in Mikes DC.

    Thats some pretty cool history on this bus. I feel like the more you know where your VW came from the more you care about it.

    Headlight bucket support and nose work is on today’s list.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Jumped on this early today. Nose dissected.  Sanded and then sprayed a little epoxy on the backside of headlight bucket support and valance as well as the nose. E10FD41C-66B9-4762-9E83-07175423899F08267EC6-83FA-4699-AA07-296381A3EEF4

    Awesome! It hasn’t had a nose  on it in 10 years! I bought the replacement for the headlight support because no one reproduced it back then. All OG German!!!

    Got the front end fit and burned in yesterday. Came out great!!  Time to dress up all the welds and make it pretty.

    How much of this sweet patina are we keeping on the nose? Do you want it two toned like stock?imageimage

    We will build it if it comes.

    Only put in half day on this yesterday. Got in early this morning and finished going over the front end. Welded up the antenna holes. Made sure all welding/grinding is complete.

    All the nooks, crannies, seams came out great. Metal work is done up front!!!44AD0D65-7DC8-4F8B-B59C-4D7123305F89F111AEE8-AD6D-46FA-B46E-E490EF833C774ABAF799-33D7-4E79-B8EC-53DD9B1EB6DB4E9BD18F-02A1-4CA4-98CA-3DFF0E479907E3EC03AF-2EFD-44E1-91A3-80EF14B1A31380CB05E5-6144-472B-B011-3AED3DCE7AF9F60A1A0A-09AC-4C42-9369-203840A9E28ADFEDD7B5-095F-471B-98E5-27FC7A1B6F09

    I was thinking that right rear was a little too far gone to straighten.

    Pass corner needed a good bit of love. Had to do some push, pull, cut, weld, grind, but I got it back into shape.5741C0EE-9D93-453E-BD6D-18FCAD2B1DE1BB1A569D-FA9B-485F-8930-8DA92A0E2088EE6C83C3-BBB5-407E-AF60-BC0F2F30C88D91ACCC72-F912-4AF4-BBB1-C9606F027EB31136DBA6-6403-4E25-8D55-6849FDE2ADAE62B0E587-5524-42ED-8A0F-CB72E64FF70D

    Moved onto cargo doors. Rear hinge area was the worst. Pulled the door with a little help from the hot wrench. 91C508A6-2FAC-4F12-A08D-F44918FFA990

    Got the screw out, but lost the nut plate….😪😪  Nut plate cage must have broken when it was hit in the accident.  I’ll dig into this first thing today.3E2B2124-9A9D-4EB5-A940-4C296B2A097A

    Worked out the damaged in the short side as well as the rear cargo door.B6D1BD45-E00E-4749-9892-A43E8A3D7816BDD283A3-A205-455F-83A7-75B0F6CFC015

    I will have all the little spots worked out today. Hoping our WW order also arrives today so I can finish up metal work. If not onto bodywork where needed.

    We will build it if it comes.
