    I spent the evening power washing the back half and mechanicals for the turkis 63 beetle. It’s definitely missing the lead detent plugs on the transaxle. The nosecone has been welded on too…It’s looks solid, but I am sure we can find a replacement. More disassembly on Monday.

    The long block and transaxle center section are on a pallet and headed to Painter’s in Denver.

    The axle tubes, backing plates, and brake drums do not have much paint on them. Maybe we should sandblast and paint?

    The engine tin looks pretty good. Very nice for original. I can clean/shine it a little more.

    Started pushing on the bent bumper bracket/apron. It needs some more finesse, but it moved back to the original shape pretty easily.

    Cool tool there, that adapter for your jack. Just another example of why KCW is the place to get your old VW worked on.

    … Or you could just get out the bfh 🙁

    I’ve been pushing and hammering dents out of the rear end. Welded a bunch of cracks. Dressing now…

    It really is a nice little car.

    I noticed the driver side of the front apron is pushed in today. We can make it right.
