    Gonna get started early on this rig today! ? I was thinking about colors again yesterday…. With the Standard 3 spoke wheel and all… I guess Dove Blue would work. But I think I will base clear this one.. It will make it much shiney ier and a little more deluxe.. ofcourse. I gotta cut and buff it too… ? ? ? Those wheels are pretty commercial looking too.. I wonder if we could add some paint detail in the circles or something. L31 in the holes? I think I wanna deliver this one to wisconsin… and take some cabin time afterwards.. ? ?

    i like the sound of all of this.   We got time to think about the holes.    …..black holes easy to clean.  Blue……may be a bit of up keep……I’m lazy.

    Maybe spread the hood on monday, let it dry for two days in the sun and then let Tom block it down? 😉  😉

    Tom.. This beam is going to be over the top…  Better than your expectations could possibly have dreamt up when we first started talking about this “driver” project…. 😉

    I saw a mc master order for “Mirror-Like 304 Stainless Steel Round Tube, “…  Polished mirror like stainless beam….. wow….  😀  😀   This is gonna be fun…. 😉

     

    Now…. I had a look at that decklid… forget it exists… I refuse to spend my time on that piece of shit you sent with your car.  Find me another one…  Please, and Thank you.   😉   and the one sent with it to fix it.. Junk too.. 😉  😉   I think someone might make em…. I think Dan might have had a new one..

    The rest of car is going great… and I see we have a nice hood to work with…

    That decklid is so fucking ugly it doesn’t even take a good picture. 😉   I guess I should tackle those horribly messed up semi pockets.

    Mirror-like 304 stainless shock towers are incoming as well.  😉

    Do you guys have a good photo of the KCW logo with the Beetle silhouette?  If you’ve got the logo file from whoever cut the big one in your back lot, that would be really good!  If not, a good straight-on photo will do.

    Thanks!

    I will find another decklid.  I sent Along 2 hoods.   The red one is the OG hood.  The blue one is a feeebie I threw in for your parts pile.  It’s the wrong year for the vert.

    Is anyone out there in the Tacoma area?  There is a nice vert deck kid for sale there but the guy only wants to sell locally. Fukn $1800.  Dang.

    We gotta figure out a RHD speedo tube too.

    You want that shitty hood fixed too….  Damn this blue one is nice and 4 tab….. But from a 59 I am guessing.

    I need the head against the wall emoji right now….

    Unk, are you on Facebook? There is a Aussie Vw Ovals group where I’m sure we could find someone willing to try post you one.

    Otherwise I can take pics of the one on my oval and I’m sure the guys could easily recreate one

    I looked, thought about, contemplated and am still staring at those f’ed up 1/4’s and semi pockets.  I think they hammered them in, and brazed over with some metal… when they hammered the 1/4 in around the semi holes…. they made the whole 1/4 pooch out and is high as a oregon stoner… stretched and not pretty… I mean.. it doesn’t look too bad in pics.. but.. after I cut it all out, hammer the shit out of it and then weld it back in…. it’s gonna look real ugly.. 😉     this is quite the quandary… 😉   door jamb got damaged too…  humm..

    Maybe I should cut the inner structure all out so I can get in there to hammer on them????  I dunno Tom…   it will come to me.. or.. we could just build it up with bondo and make the semi’s looked “frenched” in… 😉
