59 panel van conversion to 15 window deluxe - on the samba

Post by 39coupe on Tue Dec 29, 2009 5:04 pm

Anyone seen this thread yet. Some major metal working skills here. I was barely able to weld in a small patch for my rear quarter.

While I applaud his magnificent abilities to manipulate steel, I have to say that I am not that taken by the outcome. To be honest, it reminds me of the "hood" or "patina" rides seen at any show. That was obviously the look he was going for but it looks no different, from afar, as a rattle can weekend driver. I always assume that if someone is willing to invest that kind of time and bread, that they would end up with a mirror finish, museum piece. All of this is coming from a "stock is forever" fan. Awesome work none the less.

I agree Scott, to see him paint it primer was a shock to me. I just don't get it! I would have to go the next mile and make it perfect, too much work to stop with that paint job.
