Thanks Pete… 😎 I don’t know why I even asked… 😎
Gates!!! Working gates today!!!!! I think we might be painting later this week!!!!! Bottom side first… That is going to be a ton of fun hand sanding the bottom side of this truck… and how about that treasure chest?? PAT!!!! 😎ColeBParticipantAugust 26, 2019 at 8:04 amPost count: 1332
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 thatJasonSParticipantAugust 26, 2019 at 8:13 amPost count: 92
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 badJohn JonesKeymasterAugust 26, 2019 at 10:21 amPost count: 5865
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… 😎John JonesKeymasterAugust 27, 2019 at 7:05 amPost count: 5865
we got them gates all shrunk and beautiful! and spread the tool mark remover, blocked em out most the day… and polied em!!! 😎 Good day!!!
I think I will block em today and final prime em..
Ok.. so am I repainting the bottom side and treasure chest or leaving as is??? That the first thing I am going to paint!!!RustabusParticipantAugust 27, 2019 at 7:19 amPost count: 1701
Hell Yeah!!!! Gates are a BITCH!!! 🙂 🙂 and you have the Early ones!!!!! 🙂 Wait, Earliest ones!! 🙂 🙂 🙂ColeBParticipantAugust 27, 2019 at 9:56 amPost count: 1332
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.John JonesKeymasterAugust 27, 2019 at 2:11 pmPost count: 5865

L31.!!!!!!!!!!. I should have ordered a 50 gallon drum of Dove Blue years ago….. 😎 Ok Cole.. I will NOT mask the bottom when we paint the outside and make it look as over sprayed and like factory, not crispy…. as I can!!!!!!!! 😎John JonesKeymasterAugust 28, 2019 at 8:01 amPost count: 5865
Back side of gates primed yesterday.. Gonna 2K the front side this morning.. and keep moving forward!!!!!!!!!
Such a nice truck… Happy to be part of it’s resurrection!!!!!!!…
I wonder when it last drove??? Are there any OLD pics of this rig floating around anywhere??
L31 ARMY!!! Is Mark L going to be at the open house in a few weeks? Is KB??John JonesKeymasterAugust 28, 2019 at 8:48 amPost count: 5865
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… 😎Pat KKeymasterAugust 28, 2019 at 10:19 amPost count: 1127
