Thanks

@Karl h: Nope I didn't go with Marble Grey, when I looked at the paint sample I ordered it was to "blueish/cold". The color I chose is also a Porsche color, Linnen Grey. Nice 67 Karl!

Lets take a step back and see whats happen since the last post

In may I moved to a new garage that I share with 5 other VW maniacs



I applied the sanding primer


And started to sand, and sand.... really boring

I have never before painted anything with a paint gun so I started with som satin black on the gas tank


Time for the car, first the inside and fenders




Then out side and inside the doors, hood and all smal parts... it a real big job to paint a beetle, remind me to not do it again =\


Really nice to have the car painted, even if there are some imperfections... I will try to cut and buff in the spring. Atleast it looks good on picture =)

No its time to do some fun stuff, assemble everything

Nice build.  A car after my heart, as my club car was a '67 painted a similar hue, light grey, more on the lighter.  Well done.  My question is whose linkage is on that 1679 motor?

Lets start the assebly


i started with the electric system


And many hours later I had som lights


I went crazy with some sound silencing carpet



I replaced the rubber on the vent windows


And the painstaking work to install everything in the doors


Front and back windows went in with the help of some friends


You got to have popouts =)


They where then wrapped in black vinyl to match the callook rubber

Finally the list started to get smaller


The final week before the yearly Bug Run Classic in Tierp Sweden I monted the last parts of the interior




And on wednesday it was time to take the car to the inspection...

...all went well and the car is now approved forever, thanks to Swedens new law =)

Thursday night i burnt the midnight oil and changed from the original 1300 engien to the more fun 1679cc that I hade in the 71


On the way...


...and the car friday evening at Bug Run Classic, really nice feeling to finaly be able to drive the car.

Thanks for all the kind words  Smiley I really appreciate it!

The next step is to fix the inner roof and some sort of carpet inside the car and also fix the paint on the backfencer and front hood.

Just a coule of more picture

The autumn 2019 I did manage to sneak a picture of the 67 in to the Airmighty Portfolio issue


Nice feeling to see the car in print in such a nice magazin
