    I fit and tacked some beam gussets this afternoon while Pat modified lower torsion arms and prepped for chassis parts paint session.

    It’s going to be like a big model kit for assembly when the Wolfsburg west order arrives next week.

    The long side probably got more paint or a second coat to keep it wet at the factory??🤷‍♂️

    We still have several dents to work out on the roof, corner, deck lid, and passenger door.

    The long side blend polished out great! …And the color is spot on.

    I polished the OG paint door, dogleg, corner, and between the windows this afternoon. Pictures in the sun tomorrow.

    Looking good Cole! Hard to believe you guys did all that work in less than 3 weeks.

    The body pan and engine were separate pieces this time a week ago.

    Pat and I did a CRL scrub on most all of the bus today. Ready for polish and wax. White scotchbrite is like 1500 grit sandpaper. Removed all the moss and overspray with it. Been waiting weeks to clean it like this. 👍

    Sanded blend edges and started cleaning oxidation. Nothing fantastic to report.

    Beautiful weather we are having for Nov. 18th.
