    Thanks for getting me headed in the right direction:) I’m excited to build this thing!

    Mexico sounds fun… but I want to build this thing! I’ve been saving up and busting my ass trying to get projects done and this thing started… worked too much to stop now. I wanna get it done before too much snow flies. Haha that way I can get it back to WA without too much trouble hahaha 😬 build it. Drive it. 1000 miles seems like a good Shake down😁

     

    besides… grand junction is basically Baja!;) tacos right up the street, as much Mexican beer as you want! And, now you have the water park right by the rock shop! It’s your beach getaway!😎 hahaha

    I hammered for a little while.. I haven’t been in the right mood lately.. 8-(  Hoping this 65 will provide me with some therapy today!!!! 😎  😎

    Apron is better, whole front end is pretty rough.. and the back isn’t winning a beauty pageant either… 😎   What style bumpers?

    I got all the bolts in and shit lining up better…

    WW was out of bumpers when I ordered up from them. I think I’m gonna piece something else together. So I don’t know what bumpers yet…

     

    Hell ya! I’m excited… can’t wait to get back to KCW…

    Well…. I stared at that rear clip for a while… I tried to find a way to make it work in my head… but no luck… I had to cut that shit off… 😎 This is why I wanted to start sooner than later…. I knew we had some shit that needed some repair that was beyond a quickie weekend paint job… 😎

    We will need a rear apron assy and both side repair pieces… The repair pieces may or may not come with the bumper brackets… ??  I bet WW has em….

    Going to widdle away at your project today.. Take some doors apart, hang a hood and doors, maybe even a decklid…  Your rear body mounts don’t look all that awesome. but hopefully patchable.. 8-(

    Some BIG ass boxes came in for you yesterday!! I assume not metal yet…

    Cole I got a set of Ghia bumpers from http://www.sgbumperscar.com

    Vietnamese company. Stainless. They are gorgeous. I am pretty sure they have Beetle bumpers too.

    WOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!    Progress being helped along by multiple states of effort!!!!  😎  😎

    I hung the deck lid, hood, rear fenders…   You holes were rough and tight from non use, I tapped em out till the bolts went in with just your fingers… 😎  😎  😎    I mentioned patching the rear body mounts…. NEGATIVE on that….  but we have some here from a project that didn’t need em…   two of the running board nut plates got lost in a hackery repair…  need to fix that next and mock up some running boards..

    Probably use some crap out of the trailer to mock it up…. 😎  I thought about tearing your pan apart…  Your going to bring a trans with axle tubes and brakes and everything on it right??   SO I don’t need to save the tranny and rear stuff, but I could go ahead and start tearing down the beam I guess….

    Your pan halves look primo!!!!!!!!
