      You must have jinxed me! (Not really.......)
      ...but over the weekend, I discovered my axle boot has a split in it! (Drip, drip, drip!)
      I don't put that many miles on it, so the "bearing oil feed starvation" isn't that much of a concern,,, but I'll get my boot(s) fixed to keep my trans happy.

      PChop> mask everything but the car> blur the heck out of everything else.

      Thanks, too!

      My dad had a black '57 ragtop in the '60s and everytime I see one, I think of his car.

      I haven't done too much to the Bug, recently, so I decided to freshen up my dash knobs, just to get them to match each other.

      Well, I also decided to paint the steering wheel, so that would match, too. but I couldn't just paint over THIS...


      so I did a little of this...

      & this...


      & alot of sanding of this


      shot with Krylon Ivory & ended up with this...


      I'm going to paint the shift lever & ebrake handle, too
      ( Seats& door panels should be getting a refresh soon )
      (Oh yeah, the dash knobs all match now, too. )
      That's all for now.
