Beetle Build - Day Three Point Three

Not much progress today. The weather kept us away, yesterday. I had some choirs this morning and didn't get over to Roger's until noon. We only had a couple of hours to work and spent it on the brakes. Roger's a seriously talented mechanic. I don't know that he's ever worked on a Beetle, let alone one 30+ years old. But he completely disassembled the brakes, reconditioned them, and got them working again in no time. We ended up needing some brake cables (the old ones were cracked and/or leaking after more than three decades) so placed orders for those and plan to hit it hard next weekend. Progress is slow, but steady.
