    Love this Okrasa… CE49CC8E-622E-47D4-B51F-3306D586F822

    Roommate Will just told me that car upholsterer is one of the top jobs for serial killers… I told him I wasn’t surprised ♥😛

    Thanks Rusty! The shop had asked me haha. I think with all it’s bullshit laws California got one thing right with their car insurance liability. Probably because everyone is obsessed with their cars out here

    Just got a call back from the insurance adjuster sounds like they’re going to start with repairs at the quoted estimate!

    How would you guys recommend fixing this front quarter panel damage? Is it possible to find a new panel or just body work it out?D22EB2BF-7464-466D-BC80-D0A948597C959C94B4A6-6190-4FCB-B926-9962F74A048C

    I took it to a shop that Scott from VW Paradise recommended. They just called me this morning with an $11,000 estimate.. haven’t heard back from insurance yet.

    In the meantime, I finessed an Audi rental car out of the deal… because a 1963 VW Bug is basically the same thing right?ECC4E7B3-EDD6-4370-B4D8-561DC5457B17

    The lady’s insurance has accepted 100% liability. Waiting for an adjuster to come look at the damage. Any tips for dealing with insurance companies? Suggestions for places to get it repaired in Southern California?

    Glad you guys got home safe with the tow hitch strap. Kinda sketchy towing with that crack in the frame! I think doubling up is a good idea

    Thought it was time to give the bug some love so I got a new rear bumper and ragtop. Refit the ripped and tired ragtop with new Wolfsburg West vinyl

    Sanded and prepped the wood on the roof rack.

    C0FC4E8E-9A54-4F61-ABA1-26CE33A1B183Fabbed a replacement panel and was planning on welding it today. However yesterday I was invited to compete in my first sailing race so I threw the fender back on and drove over. On the way, some lady decided to make a illegal turn right across me and there was no escape.

    Luckily I’m ok but the bug got squashed 😢

I’ll let John and Audrey tell you how the race went but suffice to say it was a roller coaster on and off the course. Lots was learned and spirits are high!
