Doug was by here yesterday asking about seat frames, talking stiching and piping colors… and carpet piping colors… sooo I got some frames painted today…. Cause I would love to get Doug involved and get him on the program of getting this rig done… I am already looking forward to the road trip and party at Criegs house….unkParticipantOctober 26, 2018 at 6:47 amPost count: 372

fuchs and a buffer are required to get into Cali.
Put fake ones on, we all do it.

This is whats up. Grease cap looks like crap.
I got JJ talked into Phone dials…Seems the 80’s are coming back. Anybody see the new Hot VWs with the red 1967 Buddy Hale did? So cool.JWDIIParticipantNovember 1, 2018 at 6:05 pmPost count: 374
I love the 80’s look too. Brought back alot of memories. I was reading that article in Hot VW S today. Even had the sew fine pro car seats. Cool car for sure.
You thinking black or polished phone dials?FranzKeymasterNovember 3, 2018 at 5:26 pmPost count: 2971
I have been dreading door hinges and covers…but got into it and it wasn’t that bad. Stoked on the results.unkParticipantNovember 4, 2018 at 8:09 amPost count: 372
Maybe I should call Mark and have him powder coat a couple caps for those wheels??FranzKeymasterNovember 4, 2018 at 2:57 pmPost count: 2971
Yeah we could powder coat the dust caps to make them less obtrusive.
…But they do get installed with a hammer and removed with pliers.
I could make some spider caps that attach to lug nuts or something? Similar to Kelly’s BD or Jdawgs 64 that I worked on last year?
Drill more holes in the wheels? 🙂John JonesKeymasterNovember 4, 2018 at 6:26 pmPost count: 5841
Or just run Fake fuch’s…. 😎 about $100 each.. chrome.. 😎 😎 Although… I a actually liking the phone dial thing!!!! 😎 I kept them when I told Chris he could buy the caddy…. 😎
I am soooo looking forward to next spring 😎 I am also super happy Franz has bee able to get back into this project… 😎 I am sure Doug has done something with seats too…. 😎FranzKeymasterNovember 5, 2018 at 8:16 amPost count: 2971
Here we go. Doors on today, and body bolted down.
Samples from before when Doug was on grey piping.unkParticipantNovember 5, 2018 at 9:17 amPost count: 372
Doug and I went back on forth on piping. It was either same color piping (the red) or gray. I ultimately looked at a lot of samba pictures and most every convertible had a complimentary piping color. so….I decided to go with gray piping as shown with traditional stitch patterning with French seams. Should look pretty tasty I hope.
Doug also suggested leather wrapping the split wheel. I nixed that. A restored 3 spoke wheel will look cool…..and I think you have that NOS split horn button that I shipped a while back.
