Bugs4Christ starts our 7 Day Build Tomorrow, Wish us Luck!

Post by dlandvw3 on Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:05 pm

We start our tear down tomorrow at 9AM! We'd love to have some of you guys come down and help out during the week we're working. We have a camper set up that sleeps like 7-8 people with electricity, etc. The shop is all cleaned out and ready to go. The shop can hold 5 cars deep if we need it to but you can see in the pictures we have it cleared out with stations setup...we're gonna put the Chassis on a Rotisserie and we have the welder and plasma cutter ready, another section for body work and paint, in the pictures you can see the HUGE donation from 3M Automotive. I contacted several companies like Dupont, 3M, PPG, etc and only 3M responded and they were pretty excited to see a small group take on something like this. One of their account reps/trainers is even coming out Friday to do body work, show us some of their new products, and help get the car ready to paint. We have one area for engine/mechanical and then an interior/upholstery spot complete with industrial sewing machine (that none of us know how to use well! LOL) There's also pictures of the before of the car, that's how it sat today for pictures. I'm super stoked about this. We took the car to the Methodist Childrens home and let the kids and counselors see it, and they're very excited about it too! I really hope some of y'all make it down. Shop is located at 304 North Cross Road, Gray GA 31032. Feel free to call or text us for questions, info etc. Darrell 478-960-7090 or John 478-297-7180.

Thanks Gary, you know we'll be in touch for parts....see you guys when you come out.

For those that want to see how our first day went, here's a time lapse that's pretty nice. We got the car disassembled, had someone come out and sandblast it for us, got the old pans cut out, new ones welded in, going to put on the new front apron tomorrow morning, weld up some rust spots, start body work, hopefully rebuild the front end get it mounted, etc etc. Going good so far

I have to say a Special thanks to Tim Baker for bringing down a transmission for us today, not only did he bring it, he took it to a shop to have a new reverse gear put in, and basically have it reworked for us! Thanks Tim, that was huge...I'm glad y'all got to come hang out for a bit. They just threw the first coat of primer on the car a few minutes ago!!!!
