    Guys, the 65 is looking great! Sorry for the lack of posting, but work is kicking my butt these days. Good to see John put in some billable hours before he hit a full year. 🙂 Kidding aside, things are progressing quickly. I am sure things will slow down when we get to “electrification.” As for the color, I am still leaning toward Silver, but could be convinced to look at other colors. For those wondering, the large tail lights have been on the car since my dad bought the car in the early eighties. Franz, I have a co-worker whose friend races electric cars. I could put you in touch with him if you want to double check on what EV is putting together for the 65. Crap, I need to get back to work. I will try to check in more often, I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

    I can’t wait to see what EV west comes up with….

    Nothing exciting the last couple days…Lots of sanding and bitching about sanding.

    Between JJ and I we knocked out body work on the shell. Masked and primed in the wee hours this morning. 0B35B5BA-7287-4A3F-A62F-2E478F516AF2F53BA0C3-1A6E-4F27-91CF-9E18E10307C4

    Bug are so fast compared to buses. Can’t wait t see all the electric fab that goes into this.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    JJ blocked out all 4 quarters, front and rear aprons, and sanded down front fender wells yesterday.

    I sanded down the front fender wells, spread & sanded a few small spots of mud around the car first thing last night.

    Then it was time for some masking.1E2DA082-BC68-4A5F-B322-BD264A35BCC777558708-6F69-4904-86A0-17090014B6ECF5055CA9-B1C1-43EA-868A-739790A525D147DAEDF7-6202-4E6B-ADB1-78B4E3440C049561ABAF-55BD-479B-8777-918B0E720DA3
