Barnactivities part II

Today, I was finishing the workbench.
All it needs to be finished it is some wireing 
and two shelfes for both storetrays.

My old Ikea CD storage "Benno"
was getting a new challange too.

Measurements are 240 x 60 x 95
Workshelf is made of  Birchwood
Wheight: ca 85Kg
It was taking 12 hours to build.

At Benno our Barn-HiFi find a new home.
Radio/CD, amplifier , a active 3-way frequency switch
and the power supply for all sit behind the white cover.
Power supply and light switch on the right.

A good Workbench needs his own VIN.
´73 Squareback in that case.. ; )

F. is going to break the longtime record 
in slaming a Squareback.
2 Weeks and no end in sight.. ; )

My son was doing a complete overhaul of the engine in the meanwhile.

I´ve started to build our workbench.
Naturally not without the help of my son.

Ran out of screws so the workbench enjoys a little break till tomorrow.

Mainframe is done and those two boxes will 
get modified to drawers tomorrow.

1965 1500S Notch barnfind

The car problem about the rims is solved.
Bought me a 1965 1500S Notchback today at the austrian province of Waldviertel.
It was driven in this barn back in 1988 and sat there till now.

Interior is in good shape because the seats where allways covered with red seatcovers.
The whole car is a perfect base to build something nice out of it.
No missing parts and some boxes full of parts (some of them NOS in original Boxes) comes
with the car. 
Austrian title and the keys too.
As fas as I saw there is not much to weld, but I never trust a Type3 before  
I havent seen every area after some disassembling.

Sorry about the bad Iphone-pics, but i was too much excited about this find
and forgot to take more pictures or check quality of them.

Because of my time intensive job at the moment,
it will take some weeks before the Noch arrives to our barn,
so please be patient if you want to see mor of it.
Good things takes longer somtimes
