This has got to be getting close. What’s left to do?
Come on Kelly, let the crew bust ass on it and get it shipped out to you so you can enjoy it.Lone StarParticipantMay 18, 2022 at 1:39 pmPost count: 250
Motor needs to be built. The HOLD UP is in interior from West Coast Classic. They are currently 3-4 months out. So the wait continues.
John, if you have time blast and paint the seat frames.John JonesModeratorMay 31, 2022 at 7:12 amPost count: 11223
No thanks Kelly… I’m worn out on this one too…. Why do the seat frames if they are just another thing to be in the way while you wait on this unobtanium interior..
Best Idea I have for this rig, Send someone to get it and store it at your place… 😎 😎 😎 I am positive you can find someone in Dallas Texas to install and finish this car..

Doug has pretty much retired… Which means I don’t have anyone I trust to work on your $10K interior… 😎
I’m sorry guys… Doug’s getting old and he can’t stop it!!!! His back hurts more than mine.. 😎 8-)Interiors are not his main concern anymore..
Top looks awesome…. Doors shut like a dream.. Paint job looks awesome, kudos to whoever painted it.. All the hard shit is done.. It rolls perfectly 😎 😎 😎

Maybe.. Kelly and Mary could have fun parallel playing in the garage putting it together, bonding… !!! 😎 😎 Get the seat frames powder coated, and send them out to either silver linings, or someone local in Dallas… Gotta be plenty of awesome Interior guys in TEXAS!!! then you two pop some panels in, slap a couple pieces of carpet in and Install some seats!!! You got this!! You already have an engine too… Would be fun!!!!!

I spent yesterday detailing and packing this project for transport to Texas. I had to do some clay bar work to get it clean.John JonesModeratorJuly 6, 2022 at 7:33 amPost count: 11223
Awesome Franz… we got to remember seats and shit too…
Hate to see this project end like this… Hate to see any VW leave KCW before it is DONE!! Bothers the shit out of me… but I am also tired of storing cars for people. Waiting on parts and oftentimes money has gotten toooooo old for me… My concrete, and shop is damn near my biggest asset. and I must keep it clean and fresh……
No more stale projects at KCW. This rig started at another shop in cali… now me… and now I am sending it down the road too… I assure you, it’s not from our lack of effort. 😎
The more money you throw my way, the harder I will work…. 😎 😎 See how that works? 😎
And I am NOT kidding when I say it is tough as nails to get work out of Doug these days. I don’t even want to do any interior work anymore.
The hardest part is done!! The top is done, and the doors open and close with the top up or down! Winner!! 😎 Just some easy shit now!!! This rig showed up in boxes!!!! and ALL APART!!! and I didnt even know it was coming!!!!
