    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

Very slick Ghia, Doug.....I agree it might turn more heads than the Kübel. 8)

What paint(s) did you use on the body shell? I'm really diggin' the whole thing, but the body really caught my eye from the beginning.
