69 Squareback - the wife's car

Post by Hobug on Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:35 pm

As some of you may know from other posts my wife's daily driver is an automatic 69 Squareback. She has driven it for over a year without complaint about its outward appearance. Well, its time has come and it is at the body shop now. We went to visit it today and I took a few pictures. When it went in, the plan was just to mask windows and lights before spraying. As you will see, the body man decided that wasn't good enough; the doors are off and windows are out.

His sign isn't much, but his work is great.



Yes it has the dealer AC vents.








When it is done, no more red hinges. Very Happy


We have several NOS parts we have been saving to put on once it is painted. I can't wait to have Mary rolling in a car that looks as good as she does. Very Happy

The Square came back from Tanbug's shop with a beautiful headliner and all the windows installed. From there it went back to the paint shop for buffing. It is home now and wearing a nice coat of wax. (Applied at home; couldn't get the paint guy to wax it as well as buff it.) I'll be looking for a few more parts for her at CYW this weekend and then reassembly begins next week. I'll post pictures of the progress.

Ok, time for some pictures. We took the Squareback down to Florida with us for the Bug Jam week and got most of it put back together.
The interior is now red and I found a better rear bumper at the swap meet at Bug Jam.


Wow! Look at that headliner.



My assembly crew. (not much, but it is all I could get. Twisted Evil )



Loving the red interior.




A friend came over to play.








Today's club meeting.

Great. I'd drive it everywhere too if it looked that nice.
