Hello, my name is Michael, I live in ga, started a volksrod about 6 years ago when i was 18, ended up crushing is when i was 19 lol first time welding and cuttin ect.... didnt understand the importance of being percise opposed to just eyeballing it. Anyways i forgot the vw moved on to a 240sx, then mustang, then i realized i still wasnt satisfied. I wanted a vw again and wanted to do it right...Here is the car I started about a month ago and have been balls to the wall ever since....I am a newbie to writing in fourms but not to reading them lol, i have been studying and reading every night pretty much for 2 or 3 months this is my first post and been a member since 06... Damn newbies
By the way I appericate everyone who post pics on there builds thats why im doing this also its the only way i could of gotten this far so i hope i can help others....thanks again

One thing i have never seen or read on here, and this would make this whole chop a million time easier on me is that for your donor roof....MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ONE....yeah didnt really realize that much of difference between mine (1973) and the donor (1963) untill i freaken started cutting it and holding it up to mine....Now I know oh well we live and learn.....doors also nothing except the actual sheet metal roof is working out

How I got the car
I buy junk cars, so this guy called me on some scrap metal and what not so i went and looked at it....thats where i found this car sitting in the woods for years and hardly no rust, the car was off the floor pan and the pan sitting next to it on blocks and the car was on the ground....Hard to believe but there is hardly no freaken rust on this car, not even a pin hole where the battery sat been sitting for over 10 years before i drug it out of the woods.....make it even better is that i only paid $25 for everything. I got over 90 for the scrap he had there plus i got this car and floor pan. Really i got paid 65 bucks to get this car...I have to brag about it. My friends just see an orange vw pos, and are like whoop de dooo, but they just dont see the big picture
