    Hi OSF:
    I've got my feet in to many places and not enough time to be in all those places. I haven't got any update photos.sorry people. I haven't seen it in a couple of weeks with long weekend etc. The kombi outside is basically in undercoat and he was working on the battery tray and the edge that's under the ute tray.
    I have got all my engine tinware ready for blasting. When ready I'll take photos of the glass Whoo it's been done that's a good story in itself. Tell it when I take photo's 178.jpg

    It has been a while since I posted,been rather busy doing other things that seem to always get in the way. I been seeing the car on a regular bases,some weeks no work gets done and others plenty. It is some times hard to get good photos as it is a small place with little room.
    The left side has been straightened and the reason for this whole project the new ute battery tray has been put in as well. The final rust in drivers door has been cut out as well.

    We have also got some COLOUR on the under carriage which has been painted as well,it seems like thinks are moving along quite well.

    Next stage will be getting the inside & the engine bay painted next will the ute bed is off so he can get into the hard to reach places.

    Looks excellent Wayne. Bet you're pleased with the progress. You keep demonstrating Kombi patience & with such an 'eye for detail' that makes your VW's what they are. Great work;):):D.
    How did you afflict OSF with that "eye for detail":rolleyes:. Disease, virus, mania, sneeze transmitted:p?
    Cheers

    I don't know how OSF caught the disease but I know deyetailookosis is very contagious,once affected by it there is no known cure. Little research has been done on the disease and only spending more money has any real effect on the disease,nothing else really helps. :eek::confused::D.

    Wow.

    I forgot how difficult it is to paint a Doka or any kombi ute for that matter.

    So many hard to reach places.

    Thats right - you were crazy enough to do that task yourself Grant.

    The levels of insanity in this club never cease to amaze me :rolleyes:

    That's what my painter was complaining about,how many nooks and crannies there are. I told him "he has it easy as he has it on a hoist to paint it". Where I did my Microbus on car stands and lying on my back painting the undercarriage.

    The 2018 season of thus resto has been under way,I thought it was time for a update on progress so far. Panel beater is finishing off the final welding for inside the car before he tackles the Ute bed.
    The original owner had already replaced frame that holds the separation panels on,but didn't put in the bottom row of nuts so you can bolt on the separation panels. New tabs with nuts where welded on to be able to achieve this.

    The other fix up that needed to be done was the anchor points that hold down the pedestal seat base in the rear cabin section. As again the previous owner had repaired the floor with other sections from other cars,but didn't put in the plates that the bolts lock into.

    Tinware for engine had also been sent away to get bead blasted and returned to the painter to be painted satin black. Along with the two separation panels and hoops for the canopy.

    It would be nice if it worked like that.Unfortunate oversight by the painter:eek: but he guarantee it is a easy fix. I've got an eye on it for sure.
