Another tri five?
Yes. That’s right we now have a third tri five shoebox. We started with a ’57. Then we picked up a cool ’55. Well now we have ’56 4 door. It’s in very nice shape. There is no major rust or body damage. The owner has already replaced the door skins and the the fenders were patched some time ago so we will not have any major surgery on this one. We started by stripping the hood and fenders. We chose to those ourselves because they were not rusty on the back sides. We have primed the hood with PPG’s vibrancy line very high build primer. Cole started blocking that out today. Tomorrow we plan on priming the fenders with the same product. Stay tuned.
What’s going on at the shop?
I know it’s been a while since we have posted. We have been pretty busy and we have been making some progress. Here we have the ’70 Beetle project. It’s all complete and ready to go home. This was a complete body off restoration. We painted this one inside and out, replaced the wiring and a complete interior kit. As you can see we kept the outside completely stock except for the lowered and narrowed front beam. This was a fun project. I’m sure the owner will love tooling around in this awesome little bug.
