VW BEETLE RESTORATION
We acquired this rust bucket (teehee) back in the middle of 2016. I bought it from my aunt who just got a new car at that time. We got it for very small price (just imagine, you can buy one of these for the price of an iPhone–even lower) and we’re happy since it’s been used as a daily driver.
It stayed in a local “talyer” for about three weeks for mechanical repairs (drum brakes, clutch disc, etc) before we brought it in for body metal works and paint job. The metal repair and paint job were all finalized in the second week of February 2017 and we’re just waiting for the wiring to be finished. My husband took care of overseeing the whole process everyday while I and my son get to visit during Sundays.
Boy, the headache (and bank account hemorrhage 😀) this has brought. But look at it now. To some it may just be another old car that’s repainted. But to us, this bug is a new member of the family. We’ll ride to places we’ve never been to and revisit other places that we’ve been fond of with this small car that could.
🍷 to another good and fruitful year (a very late new year greeting 😂)! Again, happy Valentine’s day to you all, my friends.
