Good day on the Low Light yesterday!!! I got those lower corners repaired and then mocked up the rest of the lower nose closing panel stuff… Tore it all apart and started welding.. Got the lower apron closing panel set and in, and lower nose is about 50% welded… I quit about 8:30 last night when I ran out of wire in my welder…. 😎 Pics later!!!! I hope to have the shell done and start hanging parts later this week!!!!! 😎volksaddictParticipantSeptember 12, 2018 at 7:32 amPost count: 517

we still need a 100% color match don’t we Juan?? You have one inner fender closing panel that’s right, right?
Car is in booth… and will be dusted off today!!! Going to look sooo clean…. 😎 Parts are up next!!!! 😎Juan 59 DDWTParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 12:59 pmPost count: 276
Yes John, we still need a sample that matches Trout Blue 100%. With respect to the inner fender, I left it with you guys with the car, maybe Franz remembers.
I need help from the KCW community: We’re looking for a good sample of TROUT BLUE (L330). Does anyone have something that’ll help? I’d really appreciate a sample I can buy or loan, a chip or a liquid sample… Thanks everyone!WoodyParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 5:41 pmPost count: 20tlambertParticipantSeptember 13, 2018 at 9:03 pmPost count: 265
Who will do the first test drive?
Did anyone but me get this one?
Yeah I did too. Been around long enough to remember that.
Where the hell have you been!???
Give me a shout sometime. My number is the same.

a few more pics… any specs you might see are tiny spots of rubberized undercoating that will come off when I got over it before paint. 😎
Nice Ghia… 😎
