Gisteren fotograferen. Morgen exposeren. Hoe oud nieuw kan worden.

Pablo getting ready for the paint job

Today I went to visit Pablo de Kever to check out his paint job. He’s totally disarmed: no lights, no mirrors,… Scrubbed to get ready for his new colours light gray and ecological green!

I did some inspection and they do a good job. They will cover all the details and remove paint from the previous owner sticked on the windows!

It takes over 5 days to paint the outside of the car and it takes 5 500 pesos (350 EUR) of my budget. I will keep his original colour inside, just for the memory. And because I don’t have the time or money to paint the inside. At least another week and 10 000 pesos (600 EUR),  I have neither of them! If this seems a lot of money… In Belgium you pay 4 000 EUR to get a vocho painted on the inside and outside!

Tomorrow they paint the light gray on the top, on Wednesday they will finish the green. I’ll have a peek again on this stage to take some pictures of Pablo being surrounded by green clouds!

Oh, for the VW freaks. Here a view of the engine! I also bought some original pieces to remplace: bougies, cables,…

    I don’t know anything about engines, but this one looks really well-maintained! 🙂
