    Pats been kickign ass on this rig!!!!    The customer is basically having Pat do all the hard crappy prep work for a an easy paint job…. 😎   Now some lucky soul is gonna get an easy paint job…. 😎 😎  oh well…  Funny thing…. If the customer left it and said go ahead and paint it for me… we’d have it done inside of two weeks… Now I bet it doesn’t get painted for months or more!!!  Cause I am TOO expensive for this particular customer…. 😎 😎

    Ball joints and bushings installed on the front end of beetle1. No more shimmies. Drives great. I did an alignment too.

    I could tell the shift rod bushing was out by a rattle and loose gears selection on the test drive. I installed a new one and now it’s ready to go home.
