Galina lives here…. So it’s probably not a big deal when we get done.. I suggested that goal… I think it would be awesome for her to walk in the shop and it be done and ready for her First drive.. 😎 Or damn close…. 😎
Franz is the “finisher”… 😎John JonesKeymasterNovember 17, 2018 at 8:39 amPost count: 4915
Headliner today I think…. 😎 Turkis vinyl 😎FranzKeymasterNovember 19, 2018 at 6:03 pmPost count: 2456
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!
