    I did get back on this yesterday for a few hours Mike.

    Body worked drivers cab side and dogleg. Bit more block sanding and edging and it’s done.

    Last large panel on the shell is the drivers bed side. Should have that mostly body worked today.

    Almost there!! Woohooooo!!!

    We will build it if it comes.

    I was wondering if you were gonna give yourself anytime to heal.  As the song goes, “If you’re gonna be dumb, ya better be tough.”

    …and that’s great news about the steering box.  That was quick!

    Amazing!  Paint next week?!?

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a VW vehicle or part in L21 to compare to.  I found what is supposed to be the formula on the interwebs (posted on page 14 of this thread).  Also, WW has it listed in their color charts for 1960 Micros (https://www.wolfsburgwest.com/colors/bus61.htm), but no formula.

    There are some modern vehicles that have a color that looks about right.  Audi has a color called Nardo Grey and my 2018 Toyota Tundra has a color called cement that looks right.  I’m sure in the color world, these greys are probably worlds apart, but they look good.  They have a more “true” grey and not a brown grey like Mouse Grey or tan grey like L345.

    Other than having a physical comparison, you all have any other ideas?  At the end of the day, we may have to wing it.  A while back, Pat mentioned that he might have a couple spray outs from the paint shop.
