'67 Beetle "Judy"

Post by peregrine67 on Fri May 27, 2011 6:13 pm

I've always wanted another '67 and ever since I saw this one I just couldn't bear to watch it rust away so I pulled over and made him an offer on it. Bringing it home on Tuesday.

I don't think I'd paint it either...fix the rust spots, but I'm digging the light blue and pin striping

No plans to change the color. The pin-striping is just tape and it's peeling off in most spots. First priority it just to fix a few of the more serious rust issues.
PO said it hasn't moved for 10 years. Motor spins but just hoping it'll take nothing too serious to get her cranked up.

Found a nice Easter egg behind the back seat.

Then I drove up to Loganville to pick up the door Rich brought back from Tim's shop.

I agree. I'm going to carefully remove the respray and fix the rust spots. The doors are shot but I have new ones to put on. Any suggestions on making the paint match the rest?

You could try taking it to a auto paint store with one of those color matching setups.

Good idea. Not the whole car but just the doors.
