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: 368
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: 2396
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: 287
Maybe I should call Mark and have him powder coat a couple caps for those wheels??FranzKeymasterNovember 4, 2018 at 2:57 pmPost count: 2396
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: 4753
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: 2396
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: 287
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.FranzKeymasterNovember 5, 2018 at 10:25 amPost count: 2396
Doors on and fit beautiful. Pan bolted with OG hardware. 14mm and everything.JbParticipantNovember 7, 2018 at 9:14 pmPost count: 432

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… 😎
