The bodyshop is now finished with ’58 VW Beetle. The striking colour is a deep metallic orange under flattened and polished lacquer.  The finish is exceptional and will make for a stunning classic when the car is complete.

1958 VW Beetle restoration, metal work

This early VW Beetle has suffered from tin worm for much of its life. It has had many poor quality repairs over the years but the time has come to make a better job of it. Following it’s basting and priming we are restoring the chassis and floor pan first. All of the rotten metal and poor repairs are getting cut out with newly fabricated repair sections getting welded in. The separate body and floor pan design of the Beetle makes these types of repairs a little easier. With the body off it is easy to access every part of the chassis and even flip it over to work on the underneath.

Tidy VW Beetle 2100cc 131bhp

This VW Beetle has been put together beautifully. The attention to detail is superb and it goes quite well too with a respectable 131bhp from a 2100cc engine.
