An abrupt end to the 1962 VW project
I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated
them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I
thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my
vw bug sheet metal replacement part 1
Replacing my heater channel, door post, and fire wall in my 1956 vw bug.
How to do it yourself and save $. Sheet metal work, welding and body work.
Pulling the VW bug out of the grave
I kind of think it'd be a hoot to make this thing run under it's own power
and drive it around looking just about like it does now.. hahahah.

1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's
chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past,
I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the
car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone
will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones
you'll see in the BugMe videos.

1972 VW Beetle Restoration - Rear Quarter Rust Repair
This 1972 VW Super Beetle is undergoing a full pan off Restoration at
Kiddy's Classics in Jensen Beach, FL. - http://www.kiddysclassics.com -
Like most Florida Beetle's this one has its fair share rust that needs
repair. In this video you will see photos of the step-by-step process of
removing the rust, and welding the new patch panels in place for a correct
repair. The patches are hammered and dollied smooth and then lead (auto
body solder) is used in place of bondo or other plastic fillers for a
repair that will last for years to come.

This is just a short sample of what is on this DVD of the Australian VW
assembly line in the early 60s. Pretty amazing the way they make it look
so easy to put those buggers together.
