Ya, if Wayner was around then it’d be a pro paint job. Probably just have to settle for a first time painter runny mess;) haha
Im super excited to hit it hard… you can hit it harder at KCW than anywhere else. The work just wants to get done there. I’m sure I’ll be posting on the forum and Instagram a bunch! Hopefully it’ll all be a success😁 either way it’ll be fun. I need to get in the gallery and find pics from the 26 day wonder. I bet they’re coolJohn JonesKeymasterOctober 28, 2020 at 9:23 amPost count: 7121
I think I will ditch the whole extra media work… it won’t help get the car done…. and I am sure we will post enough…. 😎
I even question our ability to get this done in 2 weeks…. 😎 😎 😎 and if we do get it done… everyone is going to want to know why their shit isn’t done in 2 weeks…. 😎 😎 😎 😎 But really…. we will have put in about a week or two’s work before we even officially start….8-) 😎 Sooo… what ever…
Need to get this rear area done in the next few days…. but things are looking good 😎 😎 I’m excited to help and I am excited to see what we can do in 2 weeks!!!!!! we are pretty bad ass at building Volkswagens.. and have done in it record time many times…. 😎 😎Pat KKeymasterOctober 28, 2020 at 1:53 pmPost count: 1517

Love this. Thankfully at my house Beth is an enabler. I’m currently working a deal on a project and she has offered to kick her tractor out in the cold so it can be under cover when I get it back here.alykatParticipantOctober 31, 2020 at 8:08 amPost count: 511
I so wish I could be in on this, even if just for a short while, but still having big problems with my hands. Maybe when it gets to the assembly stage I could come down and help move things around or hold something in place or….just about anything ? Even for just a few minutes ?John JonesKeymasterOctober 31, 2020 at 9:08 amPost count: 7121
John you can come down anytime… and you can just watch, drink coffee, water or whiskey, what ever turns you on! 😎 😎 I hope you know you are ALWAYS welcome.. and corporate has beds too…. 😎 😎 Stay a night!!! 😎
Well… I thought I better look up under them two body mounts up front.. with the two long 10mm bolts.. humm;… fuckered.. fuck,,,, another kick in my balls… 8-( Oh well… I got nothing better or more pressing to do this weekend than prep for my next week…. 😎
Being a quickey… a 2 week throw together… I was hoping to enter the ring with a solid body, needing no welding and ready to start the body work phase.. All the fits done, all the blasting done… That can still happen… I just need to get off my arse…. 😎 😎 Cole don’t forget to bring a big wad of cash…. 😎 Your a few bucks down at the moment… 😎 😎 😎
Excited to see ya again!!! and Nico!! Sadie seems bummed out today,.. She is going to get pepped up tomorrow!!!John JonesKeymasterOctober 31, 2020 at 11:25 amPost count: 7121

Lot of stuff in that trailer!!!!! 😎 Thats good… 😎 Pre done parts will simplify the process some!!! 😎
OK… the rest of my day… I didn’t get both sides done…but one is dialed.. 😎 😎 😎 I will get up and at it early and knock this other side out tomorrow!!!
Drilled a hole to weld down the nut plate on the outside… 😎
