this is my second try to post a thread of building the Jetta Wagon.

We started with free empty shell´s

did some measuring and started cutting.

so far all was fine.



then i started welding
(i am not a welder at all)



then i managed to ruin the welds. (with no problem :D)





i ruined almost everything i welded, because i have no experience with metal work.



then i took quite a big brake.

after a while i got in contact with a guy who needed help on buying some wheels here.
we chatted quite a while and he said,he is doing bodywork.
so i started to ask questions and showed him the mess i made.

He told me, in the time he explain me how to fix it, he could fix it...

:D

so,after some messages back and forth we where kidding about "doing it"

:thumb:

He was like: oh yeah..let´s do it...pay my ticket and i will fix da shiat for you....

my answer to that was the ticket....
:D

so.....

Mike came over for a work-holiday here in germany..and did GREAT work !

he started with removing all the stuff that i ruined...

after some weeks of boring sanding,filling,sanding,prepping...

pushing out the date of departure....

more sanding....

more filling...

he finally painted it.

i left the colour choice to him,so he said....

hey man..it neds to be mountain green....

i picked the closest colour to mountain green i could find.

and it turned out pretty damn nice.

this is it for now.
i think it will take a long while for any more progress.

But, i want to thank Mike for his really great work,and will also recomend him and his work for anyone that needs bodywork or any other work that need´s to be done.(esp. on diesels)



feel free to post constructive things.
or just shut up.

:sly:
