  13. Had the afternoon going over the rest just touching up missed bits ect but all seems good , repaired door and skimmed it all down finished the fire wall and bumpers and track covers loaded em all up and that's a rap just gonna tow her to paint a shop in morning clean her off and start to mask off the gaps and then bake it to dry it out and in the afternoon I'll prima it then bake her good !! Then more sanding [​IMG][​IMG]
    All the practice making panels on the beetle made this small repair a nice clean job
    And that's it shall report back tomoz with the paint all on her with a bit of luck ......... see u on the other side
