    Yeah I can’t wait to get my drivers license! Then I’ll feel like the work I put in really paid off. I’ve really had fun building this and learning how to bodywork!

    Nice ! Way to go you two !

    Stoked to see this car soon. Looks amazing. Great color.

    Riley, you’ve got two of the best teachers ! Your Dad and KCW !

    I bought my first Vw when I was 16. A 1970 sunroof bug for $300. I drove it. Didn’t know how to do any work at all. hahaha.

    Sold it for $600…..so thats when that started

    Knocking out the last of the metal repairs before we finish body working the shell.14FA340C-5A43-48E7-8198-8432D709771EE3878C54-C1E7-4626-A608-ED0974D7888EBBA9A966-70BA-4FC7-AA60-A8231409A871

    Had to deal with four broken running board mount bolts. Managed to drill and tap three of the four. The one that didn’t tap out I slipped a bolt into, burned that sucker in, and called it good.6B357AE6-CE5E-453B-9066-5109731D7ED51E3C6894-F40E-4A7F-B812-495E654289D7

    There were a bunch of bubbly spots in the drivers rocker. Poked at stuff, and opened up a  shit ton of pin holes. Welded all that stuff up.61E60BC4-80D9-4062-A0F5-12E3F1A4E81D83E7A4FC-B807-4923-B055-3A1598311B7A

    Thankfully the passenger side rocker area was in much better shape.This car must’ve been leaning to the left where it sat for years and collected moisture in that drivers side rocker.B56EA730-B2E2-49E6-B5EA-1250F41295C67A653D43-8A35-4D3C-910A-BF20CD30FECA

    We will build it if it comes.

    We finished bodywork earlier this week and laid down some spray ploy. CD2907B0-3EC4-4C5A-A060-4B5D8D9C61FD3BE1BB3B-9922-48A2-A90F-3DB33F9AC5D43A908367-3685-418C-9669-4B262C963D4D

    Sunroof and the other small bits done as well.DA9B45D2-6995-412B-9380-0F1FAF640C79

    The fender wells were pretty rough. We sanded them down good, then epoxy sealed, and used some left over truck bed liner we had,  thanks Baja Mike, for the finished product.55D93621-8B71-42A9-B346-EC8CEC9801FC29C2A2CA-CB83-46DA-9F2A-2D9D6FE84A09

    Looks good Pat. Base coat/clear?

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