About Don Chuck Carvalho

This was my fathers Old VW Bettle, he was trying to sell because of some personal reasons and i decided to keep it in the family.

I was never a big fan of beetle for good part of my life, you know, you come from a medium to poor family, grow up used to have mostly second hand stuff, and as you get older you want to have cool and neat stuff, as the years passed i lost this kind of mentality, but still didn't liked the vw beetle, later in my life i met my girlfriend, and she is good part of the reason i look with other eyes at beetle now, anyways, after that I've done some research, found some customizations for beetle i though it was cool and that could be applied to the one my father had, and little by little I changed my opinion over the car, it got even better when i decided to keep my father's beetle once for all (not just because it was his to be honest, but it is a very affordable car here in Brazil, specially for people like me), and after i begun to change and fix stuff by myself on it, my love for him just grew every day. 

here are some photos of how it was until how it currently is:

so, now im on a part that i need professional experience, because i don't want to screw with the car, part of it is being eaten by rust, damage all over and the paint job has no life anymore, the painting is all sun burned, engine is not at its best and the electrical part either, but its in very good conditions for a regular beetle found around here says all the mechanics i've visited with my car so far, im trying to sell some stuff of my personal life since the beginning of this year (2014) but im not having much success, then i have this idea of doing the paintings and now the patreon idea. I dont want "free money" or "Free help", i dont want to abuse, neither take advantage of anyones good will, thats also why im offering the scans and original paintings as reward for the help.

and thats it basically...

i use this car daily to work and also to travel to other tattoo studios where i learn and try to improve my tattooing skills at every chance, but its still not a very safe car, specially for travelling, that's why i want to fix it.
Goals
$0 of $1,300 per null
this amount is to take my car to remove all the runs, scratches, damage and stuff like that, also to paintint again because the original color has no like anymore, and i want to raise him back from the dead fully, probably ill use part of the money to fix a bit the engine and eletrical cables : )

not saying that im expecting to raise that much at all, thats what i need, but with a little help it would be easier for me to reach my goal...
