A little bit of extra work as requested.

Weld up every hole that’s not factory before the interior was fitted. 242 holes in the window area alone.... lots to do

Paint samples done and approved

Paint soon...

With Pete (67) painted it’s time for the Samba to get its turn in the booth.

A little bit of prep still to do on the inside, dry build up again for door gap checks then we can get started.

The chassis will be needing more work as a high gloss finish has been requested... should be fun.
