    Galina lives here….ย  So it’s probably not a big deal when we get done..ย  I suggested that goal…ย  I think it would be awesome for her to walk in the shop and it be done and ready for her First drive.. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ย Or damn close…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Franz is the “finisher”… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Things are looking good. Massive strides forward today. JJ painted wheels and seats. I worked on the engine. Pat prepped and hung parts to paint.

    …Because we are using a bus paint color(l289 blue-white) on the beetle, it was decided to deviate the outer wheel color from l286 turquoise-white to l82 silver-white for better contrast. The inner wheel color will remain l381 sea-green per spec. 1963 turkis beetle.

    TMI did us a cool custom interior kit using bus como green and phosphor vinyl. Seat covers and door panels like a bus. Como green headliner to keep the inside of the car green.

    I’m excited about this one, I think it will be kick-ass!

    This color scheme looks great. ย  I bet the owner is going to be floored when she sees it.
