Looks like its right out of the 80s with that flake to it. 1989 to be exact for some reason.. Lol. Hope you have lots of chrome accents for it, that's the only way it's gonna "pop"!!!

You know your stuff, they go on a 68 bug. I'll get some pics up soon.

Here she is. She runs great, ready to paint and put her back together. Not doing anything major to her. Get some paint on her, beat around town sometimes, and take it to the VW campout meets.  I was at the last VW meet and the price was just to good to pass up.  I was getting alot of looks showing up to the VW meets in Ole Blue, lol.

LOL, I sure wouldn't hear the end of that from our members. Plus I'd never pass up the chance to take Ole Blue on a road trip.

Thanks Monkey. The pics don't do it justice. Overall shes in pretty good shape. I'm not going totally hog wild on redoing her, just so she looks decent in the end.

Thanks fellas.
Smooth, I used POR 15 over all of it. They were alittle dirty and dusty when I took the pics. I did it in sections. I got some more paint on her today. I'll try and get some pics up in a bit.

With some late nights in the garage, I finally got the paint done. Time to start putting her back together. I did forget I have to take the speedo bezel and glove box door off and paint them.  Here's what shes lookin like for now.

don't paint the steelies just buy them new from various vendors in HOT VW'S magazine. and don't get the replacement padded dash cover cuz they are crap, trust i should know cuz i got 1 for my vw and it was splitting just after 6 months. i made a fiberglass dash cover and wrapped it in tweed interior to match my seats. i get alot of looks and positive comments on my vw. it even won some awards also. if you want pix of my vw send me your email address so i can upload and send them to ya

Thanks fellas. I've had her done for awhile, need to get some pics up. I did paint the steelies black for now. I plan on picking up some old school slots for her at one of the VW shows. I'd like to see your VW Gene, my email is mailto:rubbermanrw@yahoo.com" rel="nofollow - rubbermanrw@yahoo.com
Dang Smooth, whats that guy got in that bug, doesn't sound like a souped up bug motor. A buddy of mine drags bugs. He took me for a ride one time and scared the crap out of me in that little thing. I can't believe someone can get that much out of one of those motors.
