I got my dream car :D

So, most of you prolly already know about this by now, but I figured I'd post about it anyway, since I haven't posted in forever. So yeah, I did get a VW Beetle at the beginning of the year. It needs a lot, but I wanted one to work on anyway ;) It's a 1974, Sahara Beige in color (although someone spray painted over it, I'm removing the spray paint and the original paint is easy to get to). I've been working on it constantly, so I may post updates here every once in a while. Pictures:

Wow, the original color seems to be staying pretty consistent... Even under the newer spray paint. Is it real hard to remove?

Well they have a special way of putting on car paint, and they put a bunch of coats, etc etc, whereas the spray paint was just one quick coat. The original paint was meant to stay, and the spray paint was just put there because whoever did it just felt like it. It comes off really easily in most places. Some places are harder than others..

Ahhh I see. That makes sense. And it's a lot easier for you. ;)
