Whenever I see an old Volkswagen in that condition it makes me want to cry. So you'll have to excuse me while I go find a box of tissues.

 That is fantastic work. How'd you flatten the tire?

I agree with chillib. (that rhymes)

my 71 bug was in a field when i bought it, but it was in a little better shape than that one lol.

great work!

It hurts to get your doors blown off by a volkswagen doesnt it!

 I heat the tires with propane torch then fast press down on hard surface...keep the rim in the tire so it holds shape...

 Thanks, Wolfie, for the response. Keeping the wheel in makes sense but I'm not sure I'd have thought of that.

It had hippies living in it?

Wouldn't they have been warmer and dryer living outside the van?Big Smile

That's some stunning weathering, looks like it'd give you tetanus if you picked it up!

Amazing work. Just looks awesome. Really admire the way you did the dents and rust. And the sunroof(?), is that paper or cloth ( looks like real material either way). WOW. Thanks for sharing. Scott.

Amazing weathering job Wolfie!  Very realistic dents and rust mate.  I've got to agree with the others.....I feel like cryin' too!

Combine a bit of this and a bit of that and what we get is a custom!!
