GOT THE BACK WINDOW TINTED ON THE BAJA/RAT. ITS NOT AS PRETTY AS ID LIKE BUT I CANT AFFORD TO BUY ANY TINT RIGHT NOW. ESPECIALLY THE TINT FOR CURVED GLASS. I ALSO GOT THE NEW WING WINDOW AND DOOR SEALS INSTALLED. STILL HAVE TO GET THE CLIPS FOR THE WINDOW TRACK SEAL BUT ITS BASICALLY TOGETHER ON BOTH SIDES.

I ALSO DID A LITTLE TUNING AND LUBING OF THINGS ON THE FASTY.

Yesterday Bob put a coat of primer on my pop top. After inspecting it he told me to get the spot putty and fill some of the cracks. So that is what I did today.



I can tell you, I'm not a paint and body person. LOL I didn't like trying to sand that spot putty back off. I guess if I would have put it on thinly like the instructions say, I wouldn't have had such a hard time. LOL

After I got done sanding I decided to give painting with an air gun painter a try. First time using one. I usually paint my stuff with rattle cans and let Bob do the bigger stuff with the air gun. I don't think I did to bad. Didn't even get any runs. Very Happy



The imperfections you see are the top, not my paint job. Very Happy I think I will do one more coat of primer, then sometime this weekend I will let Bob do the final paint job.

Today I finished painting my pop top.



The color didn't come out to bad for not knowing what we were doing. LOL We used Rustoleum Gloss Almond mixed with Gloss White. I'm happy with the outcome. Very Happy Now I wont have fiberglass particles getting in my arms when loading the luggage rack. Very Happy

Well today I just drove it again but yesterday I ran out of gas and pushed it to the gas station. It was a wonderful feeling having people point and laugh and say the same thing happened in their Volvo.... Shocked

Mostly toys. Lol we did find a Vw gas cap. Yah, it's always kind of slim pickings on the Vw stuff out there. Thing is, a lot of times you can get things cheap if you do find them! Smile
