Back together again

DSCF8567 DSCF8556 DSCF8558While Paul was busy on the ’86 Chevy, Chris, Rick and I was working on getting the body of the bug mated back to the chassis. Well as you can see, we got it. Things actually went very smoothly with this. We tried to anticipate a few issues that could pop up, but I was really impressed with these Wolfsberg West floor pans. We also ran a new gas line from the frame to the carb. Someone tried welding two metal lines together at some point and it didnt sit well with me, so I replaced it. We also made sure the heater boxes were operable as well as wiring up the engine and running new wires for the electric fuel shut off and choke. So now the bug moves out and next week we start back on the Ghia.

Raptor liner

DSCF8562 DSCF8561DSCF8566Yesterday we prepped and sprayed the epoxy primer on the bed. Today we finished the bed with the application of the bed liner. We use Raptor brand spray in bed liner for is great looks and ease of application. This bed liner is perfect for  light use.  First thing this morning, the seams were filled in in the bed with SEM’s two part seam sealer. Once that was dry, Paul got to work spraying the Raptor liner. Paul then spent the rest of the day blocking out the cab, doors and fenders. Hopefully we will spray the bed first of the week next week. This project is now moving along nicely.
