Ugh oh, just discovered this site. On the prowl for some E30's perhaps. Maybe even E50's. Maybe Compomotives. http://www.racecarsdirect.com/categories/wheels-tyres/page/1.html

Although there are no new pictures, work is being done.

It's getting close to that time where the car will soon need pain again and I need to find a painter.

Who is in the loop that someone knows? Im not looking for cheap, im looking for done properly. Someone who owns their own spot and can take 2-3 months to give me back the car fully painted and ready to re-assemble. Further more someone I can trust to do it right.

Oh, and someone who can work around a bit of carbon fiber.

Best bet is to call Porters Garage and they will have it for sure.

Thanks guys!

This also happened last night.

The entire car has been Media Blasted with baking soda. The under side of the car is the only thing left to blast.

Very big shout out to Mark at Pro-Blast for doing all the pieces of the car for me.

Jon your work and perseverance is to be commended. Most would have given up long ago and sent the car to the crusher. Cornick's old MK1 Mars Red GLI wasn't as bad as this car but met a crushing end. For the money, time and parts that have been spent on this car since it's save many many years ago I'd say a dozen GLI's could have been purchased from out west. You are doing it right this time and hopefully the car is saved for all to be enjoyed for VW generations to come :)

Thanks Scott! Glad to see you guys appreciate the work.

It's more of a father and son kinda thing now. The car is one thing but the older I get the more I realize that the nights spent out with my father cursing in the garage are way more valuable to me.

It's great to learn anything I can from him, although we were way outside his scope once the engine was pulled.

There's lots of things I didn't need to do with the car, a carbon fiber roof being one of them, wheels, shaving the bay, roll cage , racing seats, early westy front. But, as dad puts it " do it now, cause once you have a wife and kids you will be lucky to convince her you need new wheels over a dishwasher".

Jon your father, like most fathers, is a very wise man :)

By the rate I'm going Jacob and I will be in the same boat as you and your Dad when I get around to Nan. By that time the GTI will need to be done again and I will be too old to drive that with the arthritic knees and hips so Jacob will be driving the GTI and I will be cruising slow and low with the autotragic tranny in Nan lol. Full circle I calls it :)

You sir are a ledge.

Well said Jon, I totally agree and can't wait to start working on the R with poppy. Need as many of his skills as possible.

I've had a brief experience of Jon's "Father Son Time". I think 3/4 of the hours we spent doing the Autotragic to 5-speed swap and installing the cup kit in the old grey mk2 Jetta were spent with your pappy hovering over us with a cold beverage calling us both "peckerheads". Probably wouldn't have had the motivation to finish the job only to prove to him it could be done! lol

So awesome. Im in the same boat with the Beetle. Gone way too far, spending way too much on an old VW. But will have a lot of memories and a VW to share with the family for a long time to come.
This car is going to be legen-dont wait for it cause im too excited about your car-dary.

New arches are now the next chapter for the car. No wider, not flared out.

These are klokkerholm arches from the mother land.

Mr. Arron.C is taking care of the metal work on these bad boys, and a few other tricky spots on the floors and engine bay. The man knows his metal.

Looking at this with a lot of interest, since I'll be doing it myself soon.

I'll try to take lots of pictures for you.

I'll tell you this much, that the car has been leveled on the floor has been marked out. He even has the plumb-bobs.
