    That should be the OG one! Cool to at least have on the shelf.

     

    I think thats it. I crawled around it last time I was there and I think that’s all👍🏼👍🏼 I’m excited to see this thing back from apart. It’s been a long time coming for this old thing

    What’s the backstory on this one?

    came out of Canada I believe. Peter Valentine had it first I think. Then Bob out in New York had it before we got it. I have some photos of it before it was stripped I’ll dig out.

    The truck was dug out of hibernation in Canada in the early 90s by John Kellestine. Peter Valentin owned ab-51, ..dingus

    Mark… I get the feeling your gonna be my go to guy for questions…  and I think paint will start sooner than later.. 😎   Cole… you wanna learn to paint?? 😎

    So… I assume we should paint the bottom of this wolfsburg sealer grey and the treasure chest also…   Should I do the bottom and treasure chest crispy?  mask it up, or overspray blue on the bottom and TC??

    Ya, supposed to be grey! The early commercials were more of a flat grey. Don’t know if that’s closer to the primer or Wolfsburg sealer you guys have. Grey underneath and grey in the TC. Back of treasure chest door, grey. Basically make the masking line behind the door seal. Everything inside is grey. You know all that

    Is that Canadian badge going on this? It looks like a re-pop, if you are putting the badge on I have an original VW Canada badge.

     

    **Update** Never mind I see the Winnipeg lettering as I looked closer, my bad

    So… Your saying it might be a different shade of grey than what we have been putting on all the 54 and later busses we have been doing???  This is what I would call light grey…. We have a day or so to nail that down… so lets keep it top our list’s!!!  😎  I’m gonna be ready to order paint by Thursday! 😎  😎

    18foot of wavyness…. lots of shrinking!!! Pats on one, I’m on the other… 😎
