Well La Cholita got a sunroof so naturaly i needed to take some new photos 🙂
Stephen Brooks latest movie feels like it´s going to kick some serious ass.
i hope you haven´t missed his Older N Faster movie
This would be one hell of a cool show to been to.
Well this weekend has been productive, on Saturday we pulled the body of the pan and start fixing all the fucked up welding job somebody has done before. We could rip it of with our hands, thats how bad the welding was. My friend Niklas is better then me with the welder so he is my personal welder for this little project 🙂 Me and my buddy Jesper that i’m borrowing the garage from started scrapeing the pan from crap and stuf. The pan is realy solid for not being on the road for 20 years. the last passed car safety inspection is 1989.
Well some pictures from the wekeend.
Body of, and a nice hight for working.
I did have some thoughts how i should do with the messed up dashboard, somebody had put an oldstyle rev limiter under the dash, but cut a big ass nasty hole for a oilpresure gauge above the stereo, instead of finding another dash to cut a peace from we came up with this, it’s an old stereo that i had and it should work and we put the rev limiter above there stereo in the hole, doesn’t look sooooo bad i think
need a little more job but you get the idea.
Cleaning up the front end.
Rolled out the pan and in with the body, as you can see the back part needs some love.
And Niklas started cutting away some old welding work
And when the body was of i started cleaning up the engine bay wall.
And Jesper and Patrik started ripping out the 6 to 12volt conversion that probably was made by a retard.
Well thats all for now folks
I have posted pictures of Russel´s ride before.
Now he has fitted a set of 17″ BRM´s and some T-bars since i last saw it, it´s looking pretty good i must say.
Thanks for sharing Russel.
Well FINALY i get to show you the Bug Run Classic movie that me and my buddy Alexander did.
I have 5 Month to get my 61 beetle “done” to BRC 2013, i sure hope i make it.
So i haven’t had a hobby car in 3 years, and if you are unemployed like i am, it is hard to find the money to buy a car. But with some help from good friends anything is possible.
So now i am the happy owner of a fenderless 1961 beetle with some unstylish 80´s modifactions.
So here it is.
It ain’t pretty 🙂 but it’s a good and solid and almost rust”free” car. Some idiots in the 1980´s thought it was a good idea to put a plastic panel over the dashboard, now it’s gone but there is some nasty holes that needs welding.
The car is converted to 12 volts, but the wiring looks really nasty, should be fun to sort out 🙂
As soon as i get the car to my buddy’s garage, then i will start taking out the interior, or whats left of it.
the original paint is Jupiter Gray, so i will go for something like this.
Bug Run Classic 2013 is 5 months away, can i make it in time?

Thats all for now
