hello,

I joined samba a year of so ago and have not posted very much. I am started to be able to put some feedback in here now that I am a year into my first bug build. I am a long time street rod builder built a custom bike few years ago. I have excellent fabrication skills and focus mainly on custom fabbing and painting is my specialty. I bought my moms 65 she had for years and added my touches to it. I have since picked up a 68 Ghia and a 57 OVAL!!! yea hard to find in the midwest! I guess you could say I have the "BUG" now.

My question is do you think or is there a need for someone to make i.e. narrow beams, custom VW parts, fabbing in the general KC/ Topeka upper east portion of Kansas? I just dont see much interest around here. All the VW people that I have met look at me like I am some kind of crazy man for making my Vdub look this way. I guess there just is not many crazy SoCal relocaters that like custom VW's..

Am I wrong on this or are you guys out there?? speak up. It would sure be cool to spark some interest from some gear heads.

check out my website. I am building a shop and will be well equipped very soon.

What d-rick said.



There are quite a few members in the Misosuri/Kansas area. The previously posted thread has quite a few of them posting in it.

Hey PaintSum, where you at in KS? I was wondering the same thing that you are. It would be cool to find someone local to cruise with.

Hey vw62rag!

How is that 21 window find coming along??? Let me know when everybody gets together. I need to get my 66 out of the garage to blow the dust out of the exhaust. I took the heater boxes out last year (got tired of the exhaust leaks). You guys might check out my new site www.ratemybug.com, I started this up about 3 days ago for people to post pictures of their vws and they can rate other vws. It is like a hot or not site. I only have a few pictures out there right now but you might register and post some pictures of your rides to get things rolling. It is a work in progress as I am teaching myself web developing by trial and error, but not too bad for being a beginner. I hope you check it out and send me a message when everyone gets together!
