Looking good sir!  :cheers2:

I got to only do that once in one of my bugs ... I didn't get to keep them long enough to do it more than that  :2down:

First Bug... First VW delivered Xmas tree.

Took the Bus out to pick up the tree last year.  It's always fun turning heads.   :wink:

Finally getting some work done on the '63.  Gotta get this interior out so I can get the body off and cleaned and ready for paint...and I have to replace the pans.   Note the classic PO fix for a hole in the floor..... :nono:

Have you found a place locally to have it painted? And where is it. I need some estimates.

I haven't looked much yet.  I am probably going to go over to the Maaco I have heard good things about from the vw community...over in Vancouver I think.  Im a couple months from painting I think

Got the body separated and the pan off.  Working on getting the new pans on now.  Worst thing I have found so far is a mammoth mouse nest throughout the entire tunnel.  I am thinking about going with Eastwoods inside-the-frame system to make sure I don't have rust issues down the road from whatever the mice were doing in there.

I'm doing a body-off-the-pan Karmann Ghia resto. I had the same concern about rust. I used Waxoyl https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waxoyl
I bought this kit from Bus Depot. Material and spray system. http://www.busdepot.com/j11333

thanks.  Sounds like it would be a top coat kind of treatment after dealing with the rust that has already formed.

sounds like a decent product

Finally getting something worth posting again....

I had a great year at the bug run.  Picked up some fenders for the '63 and found a frame from a 50's era Allstate single wheel trailer for a price that I couldn't pass up.




The Wheel bearings have been a bear to find but I finally got em pieced together.




I found brackets too but the guy wanted almost as much for them as I paid for the trailer...so I decide to make my own.



I also put this together in the last few months....it was a nice diversion

Trying to find the grease seal for the hub of this thing is impossible...so I had to get creative.
