A few years ago, could be 4 or could be 8 not sure really, there was someone here that had a build thread for his air cooled VW Beetle.

I remember he was doing all the body work in his garage and split the pan/body and started to paint it. If I remember correctly he painted it dark gray, but not sure. I do not remember if it was a forum regular or someone that posted for a while.

Does anyone remember? I tried to search for it every which way but came up empty handed.

Thanks.

I really think this was the thread, but unfortunately there are zero posts from the OP.

I wonder whatever happened or what the username was so I can look him up on another forum.

Looks like rollins111 was the user name of the OP. Found it in a quote.

72Subabeetle also seems to be a username in quotes but no post by the user prior in the thread.

What do you need to know ?

get the  Idiots guide and the Bentley manual ( used one)  

They are pretty simple  .

I just ordered the idiots guide! 

I really want to buy a beetle and had that thread stuck in my mind for some reason. In the research phase atm :)
