Looks like Franz is giving the long side some love today… Exciting!!!! 😎 😎 Pats working on some parts..Pat KKeymasterNovember 23, 2020 at 2:30 pmPost count: 1513
I started with shift rods today. Removing broken studs and stuck couplers.
Made both shift rods whole again. We had to cut them during tear down.
Dug a pair of beetle short axle tubes and correct bearing caps out of the boneyard. Chopped the big end off and added a 1 1/8” to get the correct length for the straight axle conversion.
Finished removing the rotted covers and padding from the seat frames. Not a broken spring anywhere!!!
Hauled everything out to the blast booth and set up for a session tomorrow.
Some shiny bits arrived today…😎😎😎Ohhhh man!!!!!
Franz is dialing in the long side today. Looks FUCKING GREAT!!!!
We will build it if it comes.buddyParticipantNovember 23, 2020 at 2:53 pmPost count: 34

The long side blend polished out great! …And the color is spot on.
I polished the OG paint door, dogleg, corner, and between the windows this afternoon. Pictures in the sun tomorrow.JbParticipantNovember 24, 2020 at 9:00 amPost count: 639
Crazy how the door and corner lost almost all their paint but the long side has so much left!
killin it boys💪FranzKeymasterNovember 24, 2020 at 10:21 amPost count: 3797
The long side probably got more paint or a second coat to keep it wet at the factory??🤷♂️
We still have several dents to work out on the roof, corner, deck lid, and passenger door.FranzKeymasterNovember 24, 2020 at 11:53 amPost count: 3797

Knocked out the seat frame and parts blast session this morning. Hung seat frames and just finished epoxy sealing them.
Franz was dialing in center blocks for the beam earlier today. Currently he’s tign’ the beam tubes back together.

I fit and tacked some beam gussets this afternoon while Pat modified lower torsion arms and prepped for chassis parts paint session.
It’s going to be like a big model kit for assembly when the Wolfsburg west order arrives next week.buddyParticipantNovember 25, 2020 at 7:45 pmPost count: 34
