    Going for powdercoat Saturday, picked up the black coated stuff this morning, frame should be done by this time next week. Then it's brake lines and electrical before it's ready to go. New motor is assembled, trans is waiting. "IF"(hoping) we get a late start on snow it should see some miles this fall.

    The VW is one of the finer examples I've seen in awhile, very nice.

    my wife hates you.........

    She was OK with all the car & boat restorations I've done.
    I even skated on the 2 performance boats I've built.....
    She doesn't really like the 16', 90mph, hydroplane, with a Merc. 150 hanging off the back.
    But, since I don't take it out much,,,,,,,, she's gotten over it--almost.

    But now that this thread has evolved into what it has,,,,
    and I told her, " Baby,,, check this out: I've always wanted to build & drive one of those"....


    The new wife sort of nutted out.....
    and blames everything about this re-ignited pashion on you......

    Yeah, I've sure got a big selling job ahead of me.........

    I'll work on selling the idea of converting her '02 Explorer into a trike.
    She may be more receptive to the plan if I promise that it'll still
    have a air conditioner.

    Fun4now,

    For a pic resizer for Windows 98, try Irfanview. It's a free download at www.irfanview.com. I use it with Windows XP and it works great for me. This copy and paste is from the Irfanview website:

    IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista.

    So, it looks like you should be able to use it with Windows 98. Hope it works for you.
