I have lots of stuff to do .Mostly reassembly of body parts,wipers, bumpers,door handles, fender beading and such.I was asking Dan's help on the engine reseal and the installation of engine chrome tin and trim accents.It's not hard just time consuming. I am in the process of trying to save the paint after I just had to do a little more to it.Anyway! There has been lots of sanding, buffing,repainting and cussing.I think Dan might be able to help out there. The bad part of this work day is that I have to clean the shop up enough to get two cars in it.That's a major chore but necessary anyway because I'm getting a lift very soon maybe during the work party.I should at least have some stout backs to help me stand up the columns. The trip of a lifetime caused Murray some stress so I guess it's a little hospital time at Blue's Every one is welcome just don't expect lots of hosptality.You're on your own and welcome to camp.

 Chuck Blue has some work to finish up on his BUG project, don't we  all.
He can fill us in on exactly he needs to finish up.
He asked if I would like to come up, camp in his yard and help him with a few things easier to do with two. Katrina and I jumped at the chance, Chuck and Sue are as cool as the other side of the pillow. It took us a while to find a good weekend, but we settled on next weekend 12/8/2006 to 12/10/2006.
It went from me going up and helping Chuck with a few things to:
Katrina and I going up and helping Chuck with a few things. (Sue has a bum foot, was the only reason I considered going alone)
Katrina and I going up and helping Chuck with a few things AND meeting Denis and Andrew to put a new transmission in "Murray" after Denis pulled Murray's groin muscle on his "Trip of a Lifetime".

I figured if that many of us were going to be doing this it would only be fair to invite the rest of you to the "First Annual Parts at the Parthenon" I know that when there is VW work to do I always like to have at least one Mark around. So keep in mind that Sue is down in the foot, and Chuck has stuff he wants completed.
We can not expect the full hospitality.
If any of the rest of you want to show up it would be cool.
I think most of us have been to Chuck and Sue's but if you have not had the pleasure, it is outside of Athens, Tx.
Let us know !
We are going to make Denis cook us something!
