Ok, I will get the ball rolling.....my current Dubs..

Post  Admin on Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:08 am

The 64, still very much work in progress...4 inch roof chop, 6 inch narrowed beam, 8 inch banded rims, type 4 D jetronic engine



The bus, still going strong after 13 years of abuse from me....




How it used to look before I Ratted and panelled it...


The Trekker project...

Past dubs...

Golde ragtop, only had this one a short while, great little car, especially blatting about with the roof open of a sunny day..


My first resto, 1990 ish...



It went on to go lower (obviously..) Centerlines, brushed alloy interior, open stinger....oh the memories! Very Happy In the background you can see the roof of another 72 that cost me £200, that was used as a runabout while the restoration was taking place...best £200 car ever! well, apart from the flintstones stylee floorpans...

Sadly I have no pics of many of my past dubs...we didnt have digital cameras back then....but I have also owned a 72 camper, 71 fastback, many many flat screen bugs, a couple of 1303's...

Cheers Smile

Its actually not far off really....its ready for flatting and painting, although I am planning on a race car type paint job with 3 or 4 colours so its going to take a while...oh, and then it needs the engine which has barely been looked at yet....oh and then wiring up...and then an interior...so maybe a little while then Laughing

Well you're a lot further ahead than me, A 4 pack of red bull and some class A's would have that done over the easter weekend!!!!!! ha ha.
I'm think applying 1 colour is hard enough, let alone 4. I tend to make it look like i've painted it with my dog, and it naturally falls into the "rat" category!!!

The only thing a 4 pack of red bull and some class a's would produce here is a lot of talking bollox followed by paranoia..... Laughing Laughing
