Re: Casa de Fye's autos...

Spent the morning prepping my pan for POR-15. I found one more hole, right under the driver's heal. So... there will be a bit more to weld prior to coating.

Amazingly, the steering stuff is all good. Shock upper bolts are frozen solid. So... I had to move everything to get the trailer over by the garage and in range of the air compressor.

Rockers are solid, as is everything under the fenders! The rear tray and firewall need help and the rear apron will require some serious bending. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2058572.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2058570.jpg https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/2058569.jp...

I used to have 11 type 3s on sight. I was down to 1 last week, for less than a week. This is my 1st sunroof notch out of the 8 I now have owned.
