Have you found a place locally to have it painted? And where is it. I need some estimates.
Projects - VWs only / Re: The Nacho Chronicles
I'm having problems posting pictures. So far I'm 85 percent finished wet sanding the car down. It has been suggested that I keep the car patina. Looking at the driver side of the car leads me to say no and to paint it. If I do paint it, it will not be the blue it is now. This winter, when time permits (wife at work and kids in school) I will start to tackle the brakes, I already know I need a new master cylinder. I'm also debating if I want the original motor rebuilt, part of me wants to keep it all numbers original, the other wants a bigger motor. But I have all winter to decide.

I will try to get some pictures posted. I'm have fun with this

As many as you know, I sold my 68 beetle over the summer. Last weekend me and my family drove to the Tri Cities and adopted a 1957 oval, we call the car "Rusty" (least I do.) Many questions have been asked, gonna lower it?, paint it or patina it? What size motor? I will post a pictures of Rusty soon  :driving:

I'm leaving it patina (for now), it will be lowered with a narrowed beam and disk brakes, Motor-I don't know. Right now all the numbers match.
