    Morgan covered her back seats while I started sanding door jambs and inside car and my dad took out a couple more dents.

    My dad been working hard on Morgan's VW while I been at work this week. I haven't been in the shop at the house since Sunday. I walked over to it before I left for work this morning and this is what I found...made it hard for me to go to work! Have to work tomorrow so maybe Sunday we will start putting it together.

    Even without the parts on, that paint's popping! We're all waiting with bated breath to see it finished.

    That's definitely going to look great. I think I'd call it "The Great Pumpkin".

    That's awesome! It's so neat that you all are able to do so much of this at home, together. I'm looking forward to more progress pics.

    That was the big thing about air-cooled Volkswagens...their ease of maintenance and repair.
