Well looks like were back in business!

I have almost finished the all the welding and bodywork on the 66 now, thank god, never thought I was going to get there. everytime I thought I was near the end I found another section that needed repairing.
I have sort of come to an agreement about buying another Beetle in 12 months time and it is the colour that I was going to paint this one, so I have to choose another colour, turquiose or pastel blue (actually green) seems to be the two I like. but witch one? life wasen't ment to be easy, thats what Malcom Frazer reckons anyway!
Whats happening with you lot?

ahh, and here i was thinking that robo has sent me some birthday well wishes for the 14th!!!
well i'm in the uk at the moment as most of you know, but once i get back i've decided that i will lavish some money on my type 3 because i've made a list of the things i want to do to it.
these include:
reco-d dash, new seatbelts, recaro bucket seats(front anyway), maybe a new gearbox, new tires/brakes/pads (i've already put discs on the front..still drums on the rear), the 1500 motor in the back could use a bit of work, and i know i need to check the electrics and maybe put in a proper roll bar and stuff if i'm gunna drive it in khanas and things (better to be say thean sorry right??? and being an old car, it might make it a bit safer on the road as well.) i'll also get a better stereo and speakers. quite a list for me, but i'm willing to put the money in to do it so i'm going to enjoy this car.

Heh Rob & everyone else.Man i missed being able to come in here & chat with you guys.I was really bummed to come back from my camping trip & see that the thread had dissappeared.
Thats cool Rob to know that your nearly done with the welding must be great to see a light at the end of the tunnel!!Mine is only just beginning so theres not even a pin hole of light to be seen YET but we'll get there!!!!!
Camping was great & i took a bunch of photos but i still don't have a digital camera so i have to go through the processing deal etc........
Anyway hope your all well,whats everyone up too????????????

P.S.......Its good to be back.:D:D:D:D

So whats the deal with comming home, how long have you got now?
Have you enjoyed the experiance of working over there, I would love to do it but I have to wait until my kids are gone, and the age I will be then, I would probably be only able to get a job for an old dude!

well my flight from here leaves on the 30dec...so, a while to say the least. i've been here since the 1st jan...so it will be over a year(if you count when i left australia, and when i arrive home)
yeh it's cool working over here becaus i get paid in pounds and i don't have to pay rent or food costs...so all i'm getting is pocket money. (but even so, it could still be more)
