VW Race

The artists impression..................

Finding an old Union VW Beetle that I'd used as a custom, rat etc. I turned it into.........

 

But right at the end the gloss coat attacked the paint, on the body but not on the doors that I put on last thing. Not wanting to tear it all down I left it alone.

Extremely cool, Pat.

Too bad about the clear coat. Seems to be going around in these parts. (clear coat trouble)

Cool. It's always best to use the same brand and type of paint from color to clear.

That is such a interesting build Pat. I have never seen a VDub look like that before. I always look forward to your builds...always different and interesting to review. Great job, and keep'em coming.

'Clear coat trouble' - as in, never wear a clear coat in the High Street - or there'll be trouble....?

That VW is gorgeous, BTW.
