Re: [T3] New Fastback photos


<x-flowed>True, but right now the car is worse off than when I started. Sure, I'll get it done eventually, but its going to take much longer than I anticipated. When I dropped the car off last February, I figured that by now I'd be reassembling a painted car. Now I don't know when I'll find another body shop to take it.

a car that saw alot of sun.

Thanks.  In hindsight, I'm kind of disappointed I had the car media
blasted.  I think what little body work could have been done without
going down to bare metal.  I think the problem ended up being no one
would believe the car was really this solid.  I had more than one body
shop turn the car down because they assumed it was rotted out underneath.

I posted some new pics of the Fastback and some of the goodies I have
for it on The Samba:

Because of all the snow and cold temps here in New England, apart from
doing a parts inventory and snapping some pictures, I haven't been able
to do much of anything since we got the car back early last month.
Spring (and some insulation for the garage) can't get here soon enough.
