Well, I put the body back on the pan to do the major bodywork. I've cut rusty chunks out of the rear quarters, and rear window area, and am awaiting a donor Bug to fall into my lap! Actually, with the entire week off, I will be exploring a couple of leads I have on a donor body, and see what I can find.

I finished the Kerscher dash. 8 guages to stare at now and am working out a mod to the spare tire well for my Mocal oil cooler to hide behind the front apron grille, and not have airflow impeded, or have the cooler stick out from under the car.

Not sure of what shade of yellow I have Nigel. Looks incredibly similar to yours, though.

Yesterday (saturday) I got a '69 model donor bug from a friend of mine, and cut out the pieces I need. Got the whole lower rear window section, inside and outside, including the cheese grater. I also got a patch for under the moon vent on the right rear. The pieces are OK, not great, but better than what I have, and weldable.

Now that I got what I need, I'll be returning the unused portion to the guy I got it from. It was originally cut up to be a baja bug, and the dude lost interest, so he gave it to the friend of mine, who gave it to me to get what I need. Turns out, my friend wants the drivetrain from it, so I'll hitch it up with a tow-bar and drag it back to where it came from.

...and here's what I just did with them (see attachments).

Before welding the pieces in I primed the oxidized bare metal surfaces with Oxy-Solve rust converter, then brushed on some POR-15 to seal it.

One more patch in the left side, and the rust is fixed.
