Default Ian is finally doing it

My name is Ian. I'm a 30 something student/nursefather who has neglected my own interests for far too long. My wife pretty much said to get back into what I enjoy or else. So, she helped me find a rusted out type 1, and said "cut it up and make that volksrod you're always crying about". So that's what I'm doing. Next Friday I go to pick up this 61 beetle. Since I'm a busy man, the build will be slow, but it will keep me sane. I just lab on replacing the heater channels, patching the rust, and the battery tray needs replaced. After that it want to do a Capella chop and extend the beam. Finally I will build a 1914 cc and throw that in. I've owned a few air cooled VWs in my life. A 67 type 3. A hand full a of various type 1s. Usually I just go for "moar low" as the VW community in south west Ohio lives and breathes that. But this will be the first volksrod I build. I've been following and reading so many forums and builds o. This page for the past couple years. And I'm ready to do this. Thanks for letting me in.
