After 5+ years I finally got tired of the gray primer frontend...

Over the weekend, I had some time to work on The Cow Bug's "New Look"…

When Mama gave me a break from her to do list and the heat wasn’t +95 Hot in the polebarn…

It’s not complete yet…. But getting there….

That looks great, ive seen your bug in the gallery, and ive always wondered, is that a vinyl on the side of your car or is it paint or what?

That's all paint....... The paint job was done in the late 70's.....

No clear coat... Lot's of elbow grease & polish and it's still holding up perty good...

Everytime I see a shot of "57baja", it kept making me want to finish the repairs and get the paint back on (Thanks Jeff)....

The plans are to "Holstein" the hood next....

It might take another 5 years No! No! No! No!!!!

When I need new seat covers...... "bajawarrior", stitched up some awsome cow print seat covers for Azbaja's car... Wink

Thanks eveyone for the +'s.... Embarassed Smile

Ken, "The Cow Bug" was built in Phoenix Az. at Bradwood Cars, 30-ish years ago...

"The Cow Bug" was the prototype for "AzBaja" (Cow Bugs, Big Brother)... Very Happy

AzBaja was built right after The Cow Bug...

In the last month we put over 500 miles on her (Up North)..
Just got home... Crying or Very sad

Planning to make a Color Tour run in October...

Then bring her home for the winter for some more upgrades... LOL

How are you and your son doing on your Baja?

It's coming along a little slower that what we had hoped. I got moved to midnight shift back at the beginning of April so that slowed us down a bit. Not much time to work on the car when I am dog a$$ tired all the time. We just got paint on last weekend and are sanding and polishing it now. Hopefully we will start putting everything back together shortly. Still need to grab some more parts so I think we will head down to the bugfest in Toledo on the 18th. We are also trying to deceide what size tires to put on. I keep going back and forth between 30's and 31's for the rear. I like the looks of the 31's but I think performance may be better with the 30's.
