Quiet Ride it

DSCF8518 DSCF8522 DSCF8528 DSCF8533 DSCF8535 DSCF8536 The ’67 Beetle has been on the road to recovery this week. It received sound deadening material yesterday to ensure a quiet ride and 1 of 2 last minute rust repair procedures. The bottoms of the B-posts are rusted and it has very thin metal and holes on each side. Here you can see Chris welding in the patch panel on the left side. The right is just a little bit worse off that this side, but still plenty fixable. Once these are on, we will POR 15 the inner parts to prolong the metal thats inside there. This area will get body worked out next week as well as welding in the other side.

Its go time

DSCF8513 DSCF8514 DSCF8515 DSCF8523 DSCF8524Yesterday we epoxy primed the ’86 and today we sprayed the urethane primer. All of this truck is now in primer. Paul started sanding the bed, prepping for the bed liner yesterday and continued it today as well. Our next step will be to block the body, repair any dents we have missed, which I’m sure will be at least a few, then its ready for paint. The owner stopped by yesterday and was very pleased with the progress. It will only look better and better from here on out. Stay tuned.
