    Cheers lads, this isn't something I'd be too keen on month in month out, and my tolerant neighbours might not be so tolerant! . I'm doing the rhs 1/4 after Valla and a heap of front end work so it's about 70% done..

    Now time to seam seal and block sand, think I'll hire an air block sander, air tools .. Hell yeah!!

    I have a random orbital air sander Chris. You can have it next time we meet up if that helps.

    Thanks buddy, It's driving me pretty crazy as the more I do ,the straighter I want to get it.. truth is, this car has been about and is far from Arrow straight. I'll have to be happy with rust free over show quality panel work. Built to use , that's the target.

    looking good. I'm sure you'll make Valla. That was our motivation too. Unfortunately Doughy won't make it to Valla (we're going for the weekend though) - all the little things take so long and we're waiting for the electrician to come back next week. We started Doughy's motor last weekend for the first time - so exciting!!!!! He's off to the Engineer for rego for the fisrt time in years! Reborn! To get the panels straight, someone said to me recently, use a light to reflect a shaddow of a straight line (metal pole) onto the panels - the shaddow curving means that area needs working on.... if that makes sense.

    It's been a while since I touched the bus, my Ratty Beetle project is now finished and sold to a young fella who is loving his first Air-cooled VW. Now to get serious about finishing the 13 as best I can.

    Heaps more metal is being ordered to get all the crap out and make everything sweet. The engine bay is first to get detailed and painted and the engine will be treated to a better set of heads and a bunch of go faster parts, and a CSP Python is in the post.

    A break from a project is what's needed sometimes I reckon, I'm excited to get the welder buzzing again. Aiming to be painted and polished by the end of the year. Progress to follow... Cheers.

    Watching with anticipation mate. Will be interesting to see what you do to the engine. Hopefully it will still sound as throaty as it did when I saw it !

    Great job, not much fun getting the panels straight…. i made a 1 metre long block which helped heaps. Your light trick is also handy. One thing about the python exhaust, its sound awesome, looks awesome and is very well made. But i think each time you adjust valves you will need to remove the muffler from the header. I have one from a beetle which I want to put under the splitty but there is a small difference in the muffler pipe work. Can you please post a pic of the python if you get it. Thanks

    Removing the muffler to adjust tappets is the drawback but worth it IMO
