I removed all the glue, and old pieces of headliner and isolation material from the inside of the car.
I sanded the A and B pilar, dash, roofsection, firewall behind the pedals, rear inside, etc etc etc
Looks sweet if I may say so :)
And again one step closer to the paintjob!!

Don't want to drill holes when the body is painted!!
They are both in and the work fine!
And I welded some nuts in the body for assembling the seatbelts later on (ovals doesn't have any mouting holes or -brackets to mount seatbelts)
So that problem is solved too......
Now I can make some time to start working on those two "Mc Pherson equipped" beetles outside :)
In the meanwhile Romy finished two awesome pins.....one in candy-apple green with green flakes, and one for her car; an agave green pin slighty flaked with silver flakes!

What a week!!
For my friend Sander I had to make a 4,5" narrowed beam for his new '64 beetle.
And....if it can be ready before the weekend ?! :)
Wel, no problem at all.....beam is waiting for pick-up!
In the meanwhile, my good friend Bjorn helped me out with sanding the oval, so I had the time to remove the support on the rear innerfender because there was a lot of rust behind it.Same with the left corner of the A-pilar.........bottom 3" was gone, and the hinge support came loose from the pilar.The piece under the red line was welded, because an oval has 4 lug patern hinge and a later model a 3 bolt patern.......no sheetmetal for that!
And my neighbour Frank is reaaaaaaaaally infected with the virus..........what started with a 412LS, is now growing to a collection of 4 oldtimers :)
Next to the 412 there is now a Golf I from 1980, a notchback from 1973, and a Golf I convertible from 1986 is on its way :)Even our garage cat likes the notch, he walked around it like he owned it :)
So Romy made a special paint bowlingpin for him, in blue with gold flakes......ofcourse with number one on the front made with stars ;)
Because the pin got a littlebit chilly we bought him a nice and warm vest (with stars...what else :D)

This car also have to "meet" the street, so I'm going to make a 5" narrowed beam in combination with a set of dropped spindles....it's going to be a scraper too!
It was a nice (cold!) evening, littlebit clowdy and a full moon, so I took some cool pictures!
Check them out, and an update about that 5" axle will follow soon ofcourse :)
