Sometimes, I think it would have been easier to just build it from scratch. It’s been a ton of work, but they all are.MikeKParticipantJune 4, 2023 at 8:42 amPost count: 371
I shot the third round of poly yesterday. It’s getting nice and straight and I hope this is my last round of blocking. My shoulders are killing me! If all goes well, I’m hoping to have some color sprayed on the inside and roof this week. I want to let the exterior gas out for a few days prior to final blocking.MikeKParticipantJune 4, 2023 at 8:45 amPost count: 371
I’ve been trying to ‘Tom Sawyer’ my friends into helping me sand by telling them how much fun it is…. No takers. I have smart friends.John JonesModeratorJune 5, 2023 at 2:38 pmPost count: 12947MikeKParticipantJune 7, 2023 at 8:59 amPost count: 371
Thanks for the reply.
I had to do some straightening of the gutters due to a PO being overly enthusiastic with clamping down a roof rack. It’s nice and straight now.
Also cleaned up some of my rosette welds from when I installed new fenders so the rear panels will fit nice and flush. This is now re-primed, seam sealed and ready to spray.
I have a new, Iwata gun on the way and will lay down some color when it arrives. Pretty excited as it will be my first paint job with a quality gun. From epoxy to poly to finish coat, I’ve never sprayed out of anything besides a HF purple gun.John JonesModeratorJune 8, 2023 at 6:01 amPost count: 12947
Kickin butt Mike! Sanding is tedious work!

Still sanding and shooting poly…. There’s a lot of real estate to deal with on a Vanagon.
Against better judgement, I worked out a deal for a 914 this past week. I saw it on Craigslist and offered the seller my BMW motorcycle for it. I was kind of surprised he was down, but I’m a Porsche owner again. I love these things…MikeKParticipantJune 16, 2023 at 9:09 amPost count: 371
Check out this crazy VDO gauge pod.
I plan on selling the wheels and tires that came with it. Near new eight spokes with new tires, and I have a full set of original, four lug Ansens if anyone is interested.John JonesModeratorJune 19, 2023 at 8:16 amPost count: 12947

I like the earlier style dashes with less plastic, so I bought a used one from a guy on Samba unfortunately, he didn’t mention a half dozen holes drilled through it and this stereo hole mod.MikeKParticipantJuly 17, 2023 at 8:49 amPost count: 371
I managed to get some color on the inside before my new gun started leaking from the needle and dripping paint everywhere.
I’m still chasing little imperfections on the exterior. I’m sure I’ve blocked it at least 5 times, but I think it’s getting very close. Next up is to try to not make too big of a mess applying some seam sealer.MikeKParticipantJuly 17, 2023 at 8:56 amPost count: 371
Some bumper straightening for a local deluxe. Such nice patina on this bumper and the deluxe it goes on has the same.
