    I hope we can keep some steady momentum on this project so it does not turn into a 6 year build….. 😎  😎  😎  😎  😎

    Franz was saying the other day… NO project should take more than 18 months… 😎  😎  😎  Other wise the hourly rate doubles… 😎

    I’d have to agree, add it up before you get started and pad that!!!  Storing projects gets overbearing, they can get chipped, dented, cats and dogs piss on it…

    I stripped this ‘62 Yukon yellow Kab back to original paint and did a ton of blending for a TV programme last year – the hood was originally olive green – you could see the colour underneath in places. I think olive green would suit it well.

    Web site Poll…… 😎 😎 Thats funny… and was done soo much about 10 years ago…. 😎 Not so much anymore… 😎 I didn’t accomplish much yesterday.. I got the body transferred over to one of my body dollies… and Gave it a bath!!! It was dirty dirty!!! and needs me to do some rubbing on it.. it has tape residue and spots that are marred from a cover or parts storing or something… More progress today!!! 😎

    I hope you know I was joking.  🙂

    Also… I haven’t seen a stitch of hardware…. New I assume… regular Hex head?? Please not Allen head!!! 8-(

    Mary says “Thank You” for given her car a good cleaning.    Just the regular hex head bolts….I don’t know why anyone would want Allen heads.. 🙄

    Please send the speedo out to Orange Empire.  Get me a list and I’ll start tracking stuff down.

    SWEET!!!!!!     We are missing soo much… and chassis stuff too… I guess I could source you a core beam out of our stack and start getting things torn down… You need everything for the pan. everything!!!!!  We need to dig out some spring plates and torsion bars..   Despite being missing stuff… it is a REALLY nice shell… Paint and body wise… Super nice.. 😎  😎

    I did a few more items today…   hood hinges, deck lid mounts finished up some rubber stuff… and helped Franz with the list..

    Here are the rear wheels.  7 inch hearts.  Guys these will need to be sent out for restoration, chrome and some detail work.  I’ll get these shipped out as soon as possible.

    Wow! 7” 911r wheels are crazy. They’re really 7”? Should barely fit with some camber.

    I’m sending a core transaxle to Painter’s grinding today. Getting built into a swing axle w/ 3.88 ring and pinion.

    …So we can get the chassis built, body bolted down, and started on the convertible top.

    the wheels in the photos above are regular “deep 6” wheels, not 7R’s.  Like you say Franz, 7R’s are a very tight fit in an early beetle!

    Thanks for the info.  I measured 7 inches across, so I just thought they were the 7R wheels.

    One pair of wheels were sent out today.  Ran out of packing peanuts, so the other pair will go out tomorrow.

    Hell yeah, Sounds like we got a good start on parts.

    Next we’ll need to get all the suspension and brake parts ordered.

    We still need to locate a 55 or earlier e-brake rod, lever, and adjuster plates. If anybody knows of one please email me. franzmuhr@gmail.com

    You know the style that goes all the way up to the panhead access panel…
