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?GlennmossModeratorMarch 8, 2021 at 5:57 pmPost count: 292
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?GlennmossModeratorMarch 2, 2021 at 4:57 pmPost count: 292GlennmossModeratorMarch 2, 2021 at 3:29 pmPost count: 292GlennmossModeratorMarch 2, 2021 at 3:18 pmPost count: 292GlennmossModeratorFebruary 28, 2021 at 6:15 pmPost count: 292GlennmossModeratorFebruary 28, 2021 at 5:59 pmPost count: 292
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.
Next had to replace the rear bumper mount which had rusted through
Fabbed 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 😢GlennmossModeratorFebruary 25, 2021 at 1:19 pmPost count: 292GlennmossModeratorFebruary 23, 2021 at 3:01 pmPost count: 292
