I'm preparing to be a VW owner again. Smile

But I'm thinking a good idea could be to get my hands dirty and learn some valuable VW fixing experience by helping/assisting someone work on their beetle or bus. I thought it would be a little better than messing up on my own watching YouTube videos.

What do you think? Is that something you folks have done or let a friend do with you Question

I have many times.
Too bad we’re on opposing coasts.
You should be able to find someone that would gladly accept some help.
The VW crowd is a friendly bunch, although somewhat opinionated.

Check for local clubs/events here:
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewforum.php?f=16

Looking for 30 seconds, I found:
Orange County Transporter Organization presents "O.C.T.O."
...and this Samba member:

...and this event they are putting on this weekend:
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=749321

Look a bit more and use search, and when you get a group who does their own work, offer to be the beerman/go-fer/parts cleaner for next job they have.

Good to know.

Thanks for all the great ideas and info so far. Very Happy

You could ask Robbie ( airschooled.com) if you could tag along for some visits post-Covid. Chemistry would have to be right, understand that is his livelihood.
