    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… 😎

    Sickkkk! The grey on the bottom of it now is close enough. Treasure chest should be the same. Also noticed that it needs more overspray on the jack points. They were barely blue.

    Top of gates blocked, top edge blocked, about to 2K the front sides.    I think we will start looking the shell now… I am gonna start on the bed!!! It looks original… which is incredible… I don’t want to make it look new…   But I see some holes for wood I guess, hut hot spaced right… Thinking maybe we should weld those up…   I love the factory welds on the bed… 😎  I probably shouldn’t grind them too much… 😎
