Jared's 65-year-old father, Scot, enthusiastically signed on for quarter-panel duty. A longtime grease monkey himself, with a love for not only VWs but also Model Ts and Model As (he owns a few), Scot is a whiz with the hammer and dolly used in body work. "That's what my dad is great at," Jared says proudly.
Jared sings the praises of the Volkswagen's removable body panels. "That's the great thing about these cars," he says. A lot of guys will use a slide hammer, and drill holes into the dent to pull it out. "But then you've got a lot of holes to fill. We were lucky to be able to take this off, pound it out on our two sawhorses in the garage, and then really, really finesse it and make it look really nice."
