RESTORATION PROJECTS

We've been restoring treasured air cooled campers, Beetles, split screens, T25s and T3s for more than 20 years now, so we know what it takes to bring these classics back to their former glory. With an in-house welding and fabrication department and a custom painting section, we can complete the job from start to finish.

BUILDING A GOOD REPUTATION

Just because we do great work, it doesn't mean that we'll have customers queuing at the gates every morning, so advertising has proved a useful way of building a good reputation within the industry and has helped us reach out to a wide and varied range of customers. We regularly feature in Camper & Bus Magazine which has helped build on that reputation and is a good indicator that the quality of our work is of a high enough standard for editors to come calling – it's not unusual for us to be surrounded by strategic lighting and the clicking of a photographer's camera!

NO COMPROMISING ON QUALITY

The materials we use are very important to us – we'll only use the best quality panels available, the highest grade paint and the best digital welders we can get our hands on. The way we see it; if you start off with inferior materials, you'll more than likely end up with an inferior finished product.

INTRODUCTION TO PAINT

When it comes to the paint side, we've got it covered. We can do anything from a standard, full body repaint to a high-end, custom paint job (including lace painting), the only limit to what we can achieve is your imagination.

PREPARATION'S WHAT YOU NEED

The key to any good paint job is in the preparation, and boy do we do preparation! If there's one job where you need bucket loads of pride in your work it's in the prep and paint stage, and our master sprayer has an eagle eye for a flat spot, nothing escapes his quality control.

CASE STUDY

1968 VW KARMANN GHIA RESTORATION

This classic beauty was restored by us over a 14 week period – the underbody was sand blasted, all rust removed and replaced with new metal. The main body was blocked and primered to get it "arrow straight" and it was finished using 2k paint inside, outside and underneath.
