Also... with the bondo... good luck with that... You need tiger hair and metal glaze. I use evercoat products.
Good luck I guess.
One rarely realizes how bad the rust is until the car is stripped down. Good job on patching it up.
I'm really worried about those framerail pinchwelds.
the screen name thing is a long story that started when i was in 9th grade
it happens to the best of us lol
Good job making progress
Also, definately consider what these guys are telling you about the short runner and the pinch welds. Not my area of expertise, but im sure they are are bringing it up for a reason Its your first VW, and im pretty sure theyve owned a 'couple" and can give you accurate advise
Not my first vw I have had a few but this is the first time taking on a project this big
got a mini D.A. today, that thing made life so much better hand sanding was getting old
its starting to take shape
Awsome done prepping will be in primer by the end of Saturday
good luck man. Glad to see you are plugging away but seriously if both johnstamos and 911_fan are advising you to redo the plenum you might want to at least consider what they are say. I have been trolling around vortex and these two like to back up their statements with facts. Not saying they are 100% right all the time or know everything but they have given me a few pointers on my build that have saved me a on of both time and money. Pick their brains if they will let you.
otherwise carry on with build bro.
Hit a little bit of a wall with the Car this past week just got done sanding now she is ready for paint
got the bay in primer
