After I (more or less) finished my 1966 Volkswagen Fastback the "Volksback", it was time for another challenge, here it is!

It's alive!!!

Today I was able to start and drive the Volksstreaker for the first time!
I know, it is not finished, it is dirty - but I had lots of fun to drive it under its own power!

As you can see, the body panels are all lined up and it almost looks like a real Hazard Streaker now...
I know, there are a gazillion things to do before it will have a registration, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
the front bumper is mounted, too

Garage door update 1.0

I finally took the time and updated the garage door. I ordered 5 glas inserts, they allow some daylight to enter the garage and it is now easy to see for visitors if I might be in the garage...

The before picture:

The upper segment had to be removed carefully, than I measured trice, cut once, installed the inner and outer frames, glass inserts, annoying the neighors with the sound of the angle grinder...

... and another job done! A nice, even pattern of glass inserts!

P.S.: I know the lower zinc sheetmetal of the roof has to be fixed!
