Hey Paul!!:)

Our cars have become good friends....Bel likes it there!!!

They do put an amazing amount of work into the cars....I'm getting a books worth of notes from them as well....a blow by blow account of their work.....Makes for a great resto album:cool:

I'll send you the link to the Microsoft tool I use to resize my pics....it makes it so easy...just a right click...select resize....advanced resize...500 x 450...and away you go!!!

WOW

what more can i say

another awesome ragtop coming up

jen, i think when they are done we should have a golde's only cruise like the ovals only

nah just kidding, the more the merrier.

those pics are fantastic, looks very simlar to mine, but mine is on a great big rotisserie and seems like its taken a long time to get to the same stage as yours.

how long has bel been at the nursery for?

is the blue gonna be your final colour?

engine details?

LOOKING GOOD

Hey Jen
I dropped in to visit my car today and got a shock when Bel was not where she always is! She was outside catching some rays and my car looked very lonely. Bel looks fantastic in one colour and I understand your excitement. When our cars are finished, we will have to have a coming-out party.

Gee Paul....how exciting!!! I haven't seen Bel outside for months now...she had a sunny day for it :)

It will be party time when she's done...have to think of a good cruise for her/them to go on....

It is a shock when they are not were you're used to seeing them :o

Kim.....I'm pretty sure I'll stick to the Strato Blue....I love it and it should go well with her interior colours...Her engine is 36hp and she is still 6 volt..She was running well before the resto so hopefully it will all last.....I guess nows the time to think of overhauls while it's all out though. I'd hate for her to break down on me the first run out!!!!:D

Rob's too far away to lower her!!!:P But I can drive Dr L up to him sometime!!!:cool:

Hey jenz nothing like seeing work in progress shots...gives you an appreciation on how much work there is in a resto.

Keep the pics coming it's inspiring.

You'd be waisting your time getting Rob to help you lower Dr L.
Lowering to Rob is like superman and kryptonite......:repuke

Hey Jenz
Theres an artical featuring a 56 Beetle painted Strato Blue, in VW Ultra Number "5" January 2004. Maybe one of your VW friends has a copy that you could look at.
And please dont lower her!

Hey Jen
Bel is looking belissimo!!
Cant wait to see her in the flesh next time I drop into AVWPC. Given my inability to post photos, when you visit her next time, can you take a picture of Bel with her younger brother - I could see him in the background of your first photo.:thumb

Looks like you will need the spare bedroom for all the bits and pieces for that Bute Bugs rebirth before the trophies come.You had better start looking for a big display cabinet.Those painters have done a top job with her. Another masterpiece to hit the streets-well done.
