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.

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 JonesModeratorAugust 27, 2019 at 7:05 amPost count: 7855

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 JonesModeratorAugust 27, 2019 at 2:11 pmPost count: 7855

Gate outsides are all blocked out and beautiful!!! working on the back side now… Prime later… 😎
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 JonesModeratorAugust 28, 2019 at 8:01 amPost count: 7855
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 JonesModeratorAugust 28, 2019 at 8:48 amPost count: 7855
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 KModeratorAugust 28, 2019 at 10:19 amPost count: 1994
