    Just one example of why I like the forums… 😎   Thanks Bo!!!

    I think we may be waiting for some parts now.  I guess I could get some wheels sanded and painted… Your missing a grip if hub cap clips too… I’ll fix those first!

    Cleaned up alt. stand and tore down distributor for a inspection and cleaning. Ready to go back together. Parts should be arriving tomorrow. 8B02C74E-C1E3-4346-A899-B65FF298A251515FF9BA-D049-4FB9-9A73-2E075A070BD7

    Mike, do we need to order hub caps? Want to add a bit of chrome or go proper with L345?

    We will build it if it comes.

    Let’s go proper stock looking hubcaps, I can always pick up chrome ones later.  That said, it appears there were two commercial colors Dove Grey L249 (right in the picture) and Light Grey L345 (left).  I think Dove Grey will look better.VW Hub Caps

    Or should we just use the Perl Grau on the caps?  What’s everyone think?

    Perl Grau would look awesome on the silver white wheels.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Dove Blue?!?  That wasn’t even an option.  I don’t think that’ll look right.

    I think your truck would have had L345…  But I love Dove Grey!!!!  😎    Doesn’t matter either direction to me..  Did you send some caps with tis rig?  I can’t say I have seen any….

    Good day… Got wheels painted..a couple parts and I just got the front bumper body worked.. it’s ready for some primer!!!  I think the new rear will be here tomorrow and I will blast it and prime them both… The front towel bar has a couple bad spots in it…. but I’ll smooth it out… 😎  Over riders are new…. but I see something to fix on one of the rears…

    Pat was prepping for engine stack… and Franz did a bunch of things on the bottom side… I saw working on your center pin so you have solid steering…

    Going to be close to done end of this week…  😎  another week of little stuff…. and then it will be about time to pick it up!!  😎 end of month!  😎

    Hells yes!!!  That’s the underside and engine compartment of my truck!!!  So nice!

    I didn’t send hub caps with my pile of parts.  I had one dented and all had a nice gold coat of rust on the chrome.  They weren’t worth sending.  Can you guys order some up?  I think the L345 will be too light and not have enough contrast.  Let’s go Dove Grey if you have it.  If not, I think the Perl Grau will look great also.

    I’ll plan to head to KCW on 6/29.  Little less than 3 weeks!!!

    We got a bunch of parts yesterday. I messed up and ordered 64-67 link pins…should have the correct ones on Friday. Doh!

    I started assembling the shifter stuff….it looked like the key for the Gene Berg locking shifter is missing. I took the lock to our local key shop to see if they can make one.

    Also, I have not seen any door handle keys?

    WW has L345 hubcaps. We should buy these and re-paint them?
