    Nice Coleโ€ฆ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    Looking back a couple pages RED trim insert is the winner by the comments. My vote as well.

    We will build it if it comes.

    I’m gonna put them front door mech’s together so we can finally shut the doors on this rig.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Finally!!ย  ย I was waiting on the front remote mech… they are almost always busted!!! RIGHT!!!ย  ย Well, ofcourse, Wolfsburg West has them… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  and Pat ordered us some.

    Tom had the wrong door on the right side when it got here… so he had the wrong mech.. I found one of them in the trailer… ๐Ÿ˜Ž although, WW sells them… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  But.. I do try to reuse original stuff in most cases…ย  ย It’s always a topic around here… spend the time and clean up up, possibly repair and possibly still not work right…. Or just buy a new one… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    We are pretty much waiting on a trans so we can take it off the dolly…ย  Might be nice for Cole to Come for an extended stay, a few days… and we can assemble the beam, trans, and install it all and be driving it in a matter of days if everything is prepped.. ???

    Well yesterday sucked my balls. ย Aftermarket parts are like drinking VooDoo Rangers.. ย  ย ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

    Parts are getting to be more and more of an issue. ย Just like Doug. ย Just like prices on everythingโ€ฆ ย just like the cost of my laborโ€ฆ.

    projects are tougher and tougher to get through. ย Each one tougher than the last. Makes me not want to do deluxes any more๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค. ย But I just agreed to one more๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ

    Pretty sure the BEST solutiuion to this passenger door is to find an original and redo it all… I have been fighting this new door from the first day I touched it to weld it together…

    I’m gonna look for a door at BBB… any of my fans out there that may have a 62-63 right side door they could let loose of for me?ย  Preferably not rusted to death….. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Yes, John is right, I did get it from someone here in Washington, posted on the Samba.ย  It had more rust than I hoped, or the seller knew, so we made a deal and put it into John’s capable hands.ย  I’m excited to see it come out as new!

    Good news about the door.ย  Let me know if I can help get it to you.

    And congrats to Cole!

    I’m gonna hang that new green door on the wall somewhere in the clean shop.. so I can look at it forever… ๐Ÿ˜Ž
