    Zack.. is it kinda fun being a “customer”.. Being able to check in on the progress of your rig…??ย  You can see how the web site keeps the customer informed… first hand.. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It is really interesting being a ‘customer’, makes me think about how up to date customers always are with their builds without any hassle. They don’t have to call you for information or updates. You guys update the site so often they can just check in on the daily and know what is happening. It also is a nice showcase of how well KCW gets shit done!ย  You must have pioneered this concept when KCW and its website first came about in the early 2000’s right?

    Does Jason still have that red car? I have the dirty twin to it. I think we have the exact same stance and tire specs. HAha. I saw that car advertised for $24k and thought “damn, I could probably get 10-15k for mine then”.

    He sold it to a dude on the east coast a couple months ago. I actually saw it on the transport trailer on the freeway when I was on my way back from the VW Treffen. really nice car. I just saw an ad from the current owner on the samba the other day…already for sale. never have understood how guys can build a car, drive it for a week then sell it, or buy a car, drive it for a month and sell it.

    Jason Reich…. That was a good friend of mine… and I allowed him to use me real real good one time.. and we haven’t been friends since. ๐Ÿ˜ณ He lived at my house, ate my food used my shop and in the end.. I had to finish his damn project for him to get him out of here…. ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ˜ณ but anyway..

     

    Zack.. I have been knee deep in your project….ย  I got all your tin done and painted… exhaust and what not repaired and painted also… I pulled your rockers and re torqued your heads and did the valves.ย  I’ve started assembling it now… I should have it done and run today! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย  Maybe I will detail some fuch’s tonight.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย even though I haven’t been posting… this is all I have been focused on..ย  everything is going to be dialed for ya.. ๐Ÿ˜‰
