Dario has been around working on this 64 beetle that is getting an L87 paint job.
He’s been moaning about how much work sanding is…. I get some satisfaction out of hearing these young guns tell me how much work body work is… It’s called bodyWORK… not Body massage.. 😎
anyway… a place for Dario to post up!!!!!

Wow, I get my own thread. Thx for letting me hangout and get some work done. Definitely used some muscles this weekend that have been dormant for awhile! ??? I’ll post pics as I get them shrunk, here are a couple from the day I bought it. My wife named it “La Otra Mujer”, I stopped by and looked at this car 2-3 times a week for almost 6 months before I bought it. The owner was hard to catch home, I had spoken to everyone in the family and they all claimed he would never sell it. When I finally got him home I made him an offer, he dismissed me but I left my number anyway. 2 hours later my phone rings and guess who it was, yup his wife was having some medical problems and they needed the money. Turned out to be in better shape than I realized. With tons of new parts like headliner, headlights, etc. I was able to use the cheap jc Whitney parts on Frankenbug and ordered up some nice Wolfsburg West stuff to finish her up right. Thx again for letting me get in the way these last two weekends, I’m getting close to the finish line.John JonesKeymasterAugust 29, 2017 at 7:55 amPost count: 7415

So I’m doing the discount double check under a car at work and I see this, kinda took a step back at first.
We asked the customer if she was missing a cat… she didn’t own one… that’s why you don’t drive when it’s raining cats and dogs ???. We thought about some chest compressions to see if we could save it, seems we were too late though.

I had a little help yesterday morning. Franz says “that gas tank makes it look like a down syndrome kid”, whatever I can ride trails without refueling for a bit, and great for road trips. More masking in the morning then sealer and L87. I have most of what I need to start putting it together so it shouldn’t sit for too long after.
