Parabéns cara! Ótimo resultado.

What part will you work on next?

Today or tomorrow i will finish on my Fusca (beetle), novo caixas de ar (heater channels), front wheel arches and new floor pans. Almost 3 weeks of work repairing many problems where the body had been flexing and breaking because of the rusted heater channels.

Its going to be very different to drive... i hope!

I think the front of the variant is the most difficult part. What do you think?

I like to see the updates.

-mike.

good luck with your car! so finalize the wheel housings still need to replace a rotten piece of the air box, the car body is very good just sanding, prepare and paint!

black car next to the Beetle is a dodge kingston, with lower and wider roof!
