    started out as a parkway project,,,,  tune up…. brakes etc….

    Then she decided she wanted to paint it… So we started taking it apart..  Fender bolts are breaking off, bumper bolts and mounts are fucked up, fuck.. so we dig a little deeper… and see it needs heater channel caps…. Fuck.. so we pull the body.. Mean time, she goes on vacation in Russia… For months…  She finally comes back and comes down thinking we are done and she can pick it up…… She shows up….. I tell her it needs a full resto and it’s gonna be about 6 times more money than I thought.. 😎    She thought about it for an evening…. and said, “Lets do it, I want a parade car”…  I said no problem….  So… it turned into a full resto…..

    So I am starting a thread, in hopes, that my guys will update it.. and give me a place to point Galina to to see pics of this resto in process…. 😎    We have been working on it on and off for about 6 months…. But metal work is done… and final dust off is happening on shell tomorrow.. then it’s body work time!!!!  and hopefully have it painted in the net two weeks or so and in the clean shop!!!!!

     

    I think it will be just like Franz’s bus… Blue white outside, all turkis inside???  I am honestly still not sure… she is Russian.. and it’s kinda hard to understand each other…. 😎

    Is this the stock height version of the OLDMANN? The one that was there when my junk was there?

    Speaking of that, my wife and I were talking the other day, can’t believe it’s been just about a year since we had our KCW adventure. That was a really cool experience.

    I’m glad… I want people to feel like they know us.. and know that we are passionate about what we do!!!!  No gimmick’s, no show, we are who we say we are, and we do what we say we do… 😎  We build Volkswagens, we drive Volkswagens, we save volkswagens, and we love putting them back on the road!

    Yup… This is that car….  Once we got it apart.. it needed body mounts, and rear 1/4’s and bumper mounts, and heater channel caps.. etc.. 8-(

    We got Galina’s fenders all primed yesterday, set the body on the ground, sanded and worked on the roof.. got it done, put back on the dolly and started on 1/4’s and what not… I suspect we will have the whole shell in primer on monday! 😎

    Man I’d love to be in a position that would allow me to afford this treatment to the OLDMANN. Eh maybe I’ll be there before JJ says no more new projects for real.
