Yeah Yeah I know the rear wheels are 4 bolt , but they look so much better if five .

Yes I have the article too , Paul Schley found Denny Grove's number for me , I called him a few months ago to talk to him about the car . He said he hadn't even thought about it in twenty years , and was a little shocked that some dude in England is building a replica of a car he drove for six months and crashed nearly fourty years ago .

Lots of sign writing left to do , and got to figure out how to do the lacework on the wings .

hopefully ready for next Bug In

So cool project Rob!

Since you show me some pics of current project during EBI#1, I was expecting to see your progress.

Finally the cats out the bag  Wink

its been torture for me coming on here all the time whilst knowing that somewhere in the english country side there was a little VW Gasser in the making  Wink

Thankyou Fabs for all those scans - I had not seen a lot of them till now, especially the the crash  Shocked

By the way guys I think you should all know all the "sign writing" has been done by the Owner!  Smiley

I will let Rob take it from here and fill in the details  Wink

Rob, I'll try to dig through some old Custom Car Magazines. My Dad has virtually the first five years of complete issues, and I seem to remember a lace painting article in there somewhere! It might take some time... Roll Eyes Cheesy

Basically though, it involved masking up the shape on the panel, a lace curtain taped onto it, and spraying though! Shocked

great looking car dude....i've always thought that was super-cool car,

you should search on the Jalopy Journal HAMB forum for lace painting....there's loads of info not to mention amazing work going on.

Si.

Don't say that , Denny told me how scary it was crashing the original , he crashed Ned Bug 2 as well . He gave up with VWs altogether after that .

Any way  most Gasser replicas are built because the originals crashed .

The Lace work shouldn't be too hard , just can't decide wether to flat the laquer , do the lace in base coat , and then re-laquer . Or just do it over the top , so you can feel it .

what do you mean, "do it over the top"? without laquer?

Hi Davide , how are you ?

Some times the lacework was done over the top , like the sign writing , these were only race cars and the paintwork was never that great . As long as they look good from a distance .

Did you do the lacework on your bike ? I love your bike by the way .
