A good client of mine won several tropies at a recent VW car show, and they didn’t stand up well on their own. So I made some custom base plates to remedy the problem. After delivering the base plates, he asked me if I could design a little stand to display images and information about this original 1957 “Oval” Beetle, and I was happy to help! After I had a chance to show him the prototype the same evening, he ordered four more. Two of the five display stands will be powder coated white, and be used in the showroom of the local Burnsville VW dealership, as soon as I have them back from JIT Powder Coating in Farmington. This is really exciting! Here are some pictures of the process, and I was having a blast while building these display stands!
