Haha, I have been leaning towards Punkin.

Scott, I don't think he would take that over the Mustang or 300, not enough burn out potential haha.

Looking good. I know Fitz well and he does great work. In regards to a name how about 'Orange Crush" or "Ms. Mustard".

Fitz did great metal work and Scott Murphy did the paint, looks great from the pics. Cant wait to see it in person. It was a long time (almost two years) and much more money than we had expected, but it looks amazing now.
Orange Crush is too easy haha, plus my buddy calls his orange jeep that.
I tried to keep to the theme with Miss Scarlet, but now that it is orange there is no Clue player. Well there is from some special editions, but her name was Mme Mystique, and that is just odd.

Had always planned to get rid of the ATS wheels that came with the car, but came across this pic that makes me want to keep them:

Still love the stock look though, might just have to have both options:

Yeah Ill have to think it over some more. Had no issues unloading them until I saw that pic, now I feel like I'd regret it. Always nice to have options.

Scott, I'm liking Agent Orange more and more. Has the same flow as Colonel Mustard. And Agent Orange was used up until 71 so its about period correct haha.

Well nothing happened over the summer as I wasn't able to make it home for any longer than a short visit. Still tucked away. Hopefully this summer the body will meet floor pan once again.

Keeping VOGN alive, one members ride update at a time.

Actually got a little work done this summer. Was a short trip home but really wanted to make some progress on the pan.

First, brought it out to get sandblasted:

Image

Still some patching needed:

Image

Image

Off to my brother for some quick welding. Was in a bit of a pinch time-wise but he got it done:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then started the POR-15 process:

Image

After Marine Clean and Metal Ready:

Image

On to the POR:

Image

Image

Other side:

Image

All finished, few coats on each side:

Image

Next trip home Ill get to work on suspension and brake lines.

Thanks, such a long road ahead, but having both the pan and body all done is a huge step.
I took detailed pics all along the tear down, as this is my first time with any real Beetle experience. But I lost all the pics. So going forward from here gets complicated. Going to take a lot of research and help. Next thing I really wanna tackle is the suspension and brakes as then I can get the body back down on the chassis. Then Ill start interior and electrical, eventually engine and outside trim, and be at The Dub Show 2025! haha

Awesome, I don't know that much more and feel like I will be lost since I don't have my tear down pics to go by.

You will be fine Chris lots of ACVW knowledge around these parts to put that back together. You couldn't have more of an easier vehicle to assemble in my opinion.

Yeah luckily there is a ton of help available, which I will rely on. Having severe OCD makes it really hard without a clear plan. Took a ton of pics the whole way through the disassembly so that I could back track during assembly. Following a set of steps really helps me. Without a clear path forward I tend to panic. My goal next is to take all the suspension components, blast and paint/powder coat, order anything I need, and reassemble. Then do the brakes and brake lines.
