    Hahah I have some stock heater boxes getting ceramic coated. Should be done by the end of the week. Will be good for My 40hp of fury… hahaha they only sell a 8k tachometer. So that’s what I’ve got haha. I like the vintage gauge look. I’ll be ringing my motor out at 3.5k. Crazy power;) haha

    will that big bitch fit in the dirty???? Haha I bet it’ll be full! Haha

     

    my body is in the dirty?? Wow! That’s a surprise! I thought it was L595 originally? I really have been contemplating what to paint it… I’ve always wanted an anthracite car… so I think if I’m going to do it, I might as well really do it… I’m thinking the anthracite with red weave interior and black 356 wheels will look good…😎

     

    still thinking around oct 18. Maybe one week later if some parts don’t show up when they should. Waiting on a crank and rods to come from Jose and then I’ll be ready to do my motor. He said he sent them last Friday. So any day they should show up…. This speedster project I’m working on is really close too. Should be done by mid next week. Then I have to put a lot of miles on it to make sure it’s 100%😎 hahaha I’ve been waiting a lot for parts during covid… things have been a lot slower. I think a lot of shops are seeing an influx of work and so suppliers are more busy. So are shippers. UPS and Fedex etc have been really slow for us… been a bit frustrating. But it seems these projects are coming together! I’m super excited!!

    So glad to see this one getting attention. I actually had a momentary thought about trying to buy it back from John,  so it is a good thing for both the car and me that you have it.

    I’m going to start taking things apart today….

    Cole… I heard of a trip to Mexico coming up that coincides with when you wanted to be here….. I dunno….  I might have to get my work in before you get here…. 😎

    Been a wild ride, but it got me here 😎

    I get it. I’m not as tasty as some of those Mexican cervezas and senoritas… but doesn’t getting locked in the dirty with me sound fun?😁😁😎

    Make sure to take pics of how it comes apart… Or else I won’t know how to put it back together! hahaha I don’t know these beetle things. 😁

    what a nice car this is… and ALL together… 😎   Solid heater channels too…   and yeah… it’s L345 light grey… Like Bills 65

    BUT, I have a better Idea… Lets ditch this whole two week build thing, and go to Mexico with Bubba for 2 weeks… 😎  😎  😎

    torn down….   I think I will beat and bang on it some.. If I start stripping it has to stay inside… it’s a ways from inside status..  😎  Maybe try and hang a fender on it, fix that front apron…. in my own sweet time… 😎  I just wanted to get ya going in the right direction…

    Now… about Mexico??  😎  😎  😎

    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…
