    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.

    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?

    I have been dreading door hinges and covers…but got into it and it wasn’t that bad. Stoked on the results.

    Maybe I should call Mark and have him powder coat a couple caps for those wheels??

    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? 🙂

    Samples from before when Doug was on grey piping.

    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.

    So has anyone looked at the spring show schedule… So we can plan ahead enough for everyone to put it on the calendar in INK…   Back when I went to most of the shows… Seemed like Phoenix AZ was the first show of the year in late March I think?

    Lets FILL UP the Harts house with VW folks… 😎

    Classic/octo/ prada shows would be THE shows in socal. Second weekend in June.

    That would be perfect. We’ll probably be in baja racing the 500 the first week of June, and can hit the show on the way home.
