    got the majority stripped today!!!   very very very little filler on this one…. 😎

    Brent… do you think that decklid is OG paint?  if soo.. before I strip it… I want to match it… if not.. is gas door??  How about the fresh air vent cover?

    Lori and I are so happy to have John, Patrick and the whole gang at KCW resto our treasured Westy’s body!

    As John posted, we’ve owned her since 1973!

    She’s been very well loved (and very well travelled) and now she’s getting a full restoration, inside and out.  John’s right – we have tons of VW-on-the-road stories!  In 1975 we drove her from SoCal to Alaska for our honeymoon.  (More to follow on that one.)

    She’s never been in a wreck and has been well cared for over the past 46 years(!) and I was pretty sure she was very solid – but you never really know until you strip the paint.  It was GREAT to see how solid she really was when John stripped it.

    Stay tuned, pics to follow – as soon as I get them scanned (no digital cameras in the 70s!)
