My new 66 (Herbie)

Post by aircooledaddicts on Sun May 03, 2009 10:26 pm

I just wanted to post some pictures of the progress of my new 66 Bug. It is having a lot of work done
and is going to be a "hot rod" Herbie. He is having a new front clip put on and a lot of body work. It will be sprayed it's original color L87 pearl white which happens to be Herbies original color Very Happy
The paint is going to be flat instead of gloss to keep with the hot rod look. I will keep posting pictures and it should be done soon. Billie at Stockornaut is doing all the work and is doing a great job. I highly recommend you check them out if you are in need of any work.

When I first got it




Taken at work when I did the brakes last week




Body work that needs to be done




New front clip


Current state all stripped down



More to come

looks good Gary, I like the hot rod herbie idea, kinda like herbie's mischievous cousin...

i found this reverse herbie today, and thought it was interesting.

black 'reverse' Herbie... when you make it negative in Photo Editor it looks just like Herbie...!

I am hoping to be able to pick it up on Fri. but we will see. I had all the new window seals
except the door scrapers so Billie had to order them. If they get here in time I think he will have
it done. Cool

No not yet. This is actually the cars original color so the dash already matches. I am probabaly going
to do the interior grey later (dash and doors) because that is how the original Herbies were done.

Yeah, I remember reading that they painted the interiors grey to help keep the glare down when they filmed interior shots. Paint is looking great! And the apron looks great too!! Cool

It's not in yet and I am not real sure I am going to put it in. The motor in it is running real good and is a lot easier to tune if I need to.
I may just sell the big motor. Don't know yet.
