The Cabby is painted!!!!! It looks SOOOOO GOOD!!! Unfortunately I won't be posting any pictures until after June 3rd, the day I plan on unveiling the car at the first show of the year. I may post a teaser or two later on...
Nice work on the markers... Cant wait to see the final product

So this may not be related to my car, but it's related to me! And Volkswagen! That's right!! I got a job at a VW dealership!! And it's so awesome, I'm still walking around the shop looking at all the VW's and thinking about how surreal it seems. Never ever thought I would actually get to work for Volkswagen.
On a side note, the Cabby is doing well, other than the big vacuum leak I intend to fix this afternoon. :/ Just over a week now til the first show!
are you a salesperson, parts & service, paper pusher, or do you work as the janitor?
awesome landing a cool job

If you're thinking of découpage-ing comics on there again, what I usually use for covering anything in paper is this stuff called Mod Podge... it's inexpensive at art stores, works similar to watered-down glue and dries hard and pretty much waterproof.... I've never tried it myself, but what a lot of street artists swear by is a 50-50 blend of water and wood glue. Paper is, after all, just wood pulp, and diluted wood glue will permanently bond that stuff to anything; metal, concrete, glass, you name it.
Oh yeah, and every VW made since 2001-ish smells exactly like a box of freakin' crayons. My ex-girlfriend had an early-2000s beetle and I thought it was maybe just her backseat littered with girly stuff that smelled like that. Now every time I step into a newer VW I'm reminded of her...

Sorry for the delay.....
Well my car had its debut at Spring Fling, and it was a success! Lots of people loved it, a couple even said they missed the way it was before, and funny enough a few people have come up to me and asked if I'd seen the one around town that's painted all crazy colours. I just went "uhh....." and pointed at my car.
And with no further delay, here she is! Ta daaaa!

Here's some photos from paint-day. My landlord is so tolerant lol.
More photos to come!
