    Hello from Hudson, MA

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Erik from Hudson. I've been a lurker on the boards for a few months officially, and a couple years before that as an anonymous browser of the site. I've actually just this past week took delivery of my first kit, an Mk4 and am looking forward to the project and learning from all the experts out there. I've always been a hobbyist with cars, largely doing repairs and minor improvements in my driveway. I enjoy taking on projects and learning new things, and have a tendency toward jumping into the deep end first, so I decided to just get a kit and see how I do. The only part I don't plan to do on my own is the paint and bodywork, I know my limits

    I don't think I'm allowed to start a build thread yet, but when I can I'll post some pics and notes. Maybe some of the things I learn through this process will be helpful to others in the future!

    Erik

    Welcome-

    I know a few body shops in Worcester when you are ready. One has down about 10 cars for me and a bunch of others. I have a couple other shops I use as well. I used to live in Shrewsbury. Now I live on the cape.

    Who/what shop did you choose to have you bodywork done?
