La Cholita Session 2 “DONE”

Well i have been slow on the posting part on this site for some time now. Mainly because i have spent the past year in a garage finishing up this car. I hope i can find some time to flip true the interweb and find some cool stuff to post from now on.

The pinstripe is on and now the car is stage 1 Finished. and i hope it doesn´t brake this summer.

Project Coffee Glider Part 1

Untitled-2

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.
