Remove all the wooden jigs and see the VW roll #231.mpg
I have reached a big mile-stone in my build. The entire engine and chassis is up on it's own and rolls very nicely. I have done a lot of jumping up and down on the front and rear suspension and it seems to perform great. I will install the steering rack next and then remove the frame from everything else to finish the welding.
Build custom tail lights for VW bug #475
I have installed all of the lighting on the front of the VW bug and now I have to complete the rear. I am having to build some custom tail lights. It took a while to figure it out, but I think I got it.
VW bug masked off and ready for primer #473
All of the initial body work is now complete. I am priming the doors, deck lid and hood first. I painted the back side of all the panels before turning them over to do the front side. I then placed the bug in my home made paint booth and started the painting process. I have final sanded, cleaned and masked off the entire vehicle ready for primer.
