    I never know what it’s gonna take to get a lurker to chime in… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  But I know I love it when it happens… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    The manuals are really really cool… I need to start a glass case full of literature!!!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  sitting in the shop won’t help them out none…ย  But they are TO BE SEEN!!!ย  and enjoyed… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Luck is when preparation and opportunity meet.๐Ÿ‘Š

    Pushing along on Bretโ€™s โ€˜67. This is not a full resto. We are stripping, blasting certain areas, and epoxy sealing, then it goes home.

    Stripped and blasted the fenders yesterday. Lots of layers on this one to get through.ย 8886D3C7-2E60-4667-B41F-79AA37FB25D8690FED25-DC17-49A9-A98E-D5717C1BB5E57C59050C-D509-481D-9E74-3782630BD4B6

    Sanded and epoxy sealed this morning.ย EC9F5ACF-FBAE-45A1-95D2-57AC66AF5433EEB6886D-C384-4A2B-948A-AA78E1EF2694B840F6B9-9487-4BBC-BB2F-4AE668F53EE7

    I took beetle1 on a test drive yesterday. It still had a slight front end shimmy/vibration @ 55mph+

    The brakes worked great though!

    I was hoping the new tie rods would take care of the shimmy issue. ย But no luck. I ripped out the control arms and pressed out the ball joints + bushings. New ball joints should be here tomorrow.

    Did some blasting on Bretโ€™s โ€˜67, dash, door jambs, fender wells and aprons.

    Rolled back into the dirty shop and sanded it all down.ย AAA485F9-C69E-409E-815B-B1ED4C791A7793659104-8D46-407F-82F7-43EE68EB184545E79059-9676-4FCD-95CD-723CA35AAC40

    Couple of rusty spots and pin holes to fix.8AFA553F-7009-4A34-8E56-133D74589B94CDD88F82-5424-4161-AC70-E8C515A32BCE

    The rear apron had been replaced and was brazed on. Looks like took another light hit and broke the majority of the brazing.

    All back together now.DBE34F24-DA74-4F92-961B-3AA7FE1EC5DAD58CB696-1956-47EF-A962-F68A6D95D04FF2EED57E-4179-45BB-AD00-E338EE124753

    What can I say, I don’t have a lot to offer, but I do speak German.ย  I’ve been a fan since Franz built Death.ย  I’ve got an old Volvo and an old MG, both needing a lot of the same work you guys do to these VWs.ย  I’ve had a lot of friends with beetles and busses, someday I’ll probably have one too.

    Worked on Bretโ€™s โ€˜67 yesterday.

    Ended up welding about a dozen pinholes. Had to dig in two layer deep for the pass fender well repair.ย 8A60C66D-EC32-4318-BC84-9C52BF5497A2E3F9861C-7DA8-46FD-A238-B337B38D91DFECF48C93-2B68-4BCB-95A6-02BB357E5AAE

    Pass jack point has been smacked a bit. Dissected it from the pan and straightened it up.ย 4D8481A0-F7EB-44F7-9ED8-3618FE38AA743652D7E0-9220-4C4E-8545-BF73668C3F73

    Small section of the deck lid seal channel had to be replaced as well.ย 161117CE-E678-422A-8C4E-0830D2BFE94872F9BE6E-C391-4D0F-A486-0A72C44C2CAB
