My father-in-law does cool stuff like this.
As in, a few years ago, my mother-in-law and he were in L.A. when she said "I've always wanted an old Volkswagen Bug". And he tore through Auto Traders until he found this perfect one and shipped it back to Michigan.
And then Elaine wanted it two-toned.
So he took it apart and repainted it. And replaced the stripping around the windshield, etc etc etc etc.
It's just cute as a bug.
