The Rebuild Begins

Delilah, our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle has been in the care of classic car technician Chris as he begins the job of putting it back together.

After having some repair work completed and being painted, Delilah is now coming towards the end of her time in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop and we are very excited to see her return home to her owner very soon.

Putting Our Beetle Back Together

After being primed a little while ago, classic car technician Mauro has put the panels back on our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle.

More prep work will continue before our Beetle goes back into the paint booth for a new coat of paint.

Affectionately known as Delilah by its owner, we are very much looking forward to seeing our classic Beetle leave the Bridge Classic Cars workshop and return to its owner very soon.

Priming A Beetle

Delilah, our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle has been in the Bridge Classic Cars paint shop with classic car technician Mauro.

He has been applying epoxy primer to the stripped body of this iconic vehicle. Mauro also applied epoxy primer to the doors of our Beetle too.

More Repairs On Our Beetle

Classic car technicians Christian and Monty have been completing more repairs on our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle. This time, they have been focussed on the scuttle and the front wing.

Once these areas had been sorted, the rear wing was also repaired.

Christian and Monty have done a great job with the repairs to our Beetle and we are looking forward to seeing ‘Delilah’ returned to her owner in the not too distant future.

Stripping Our Beetle

Delilah, our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle has begun its restoration journey with us here at Bridge Classic Cars.

Classic car technician Brian removed the cover panels for the hood mechanism before undoing the headliner to reveal the hood frame bolts.

The rear side carpets were removed and the bottom edge of the headliner was removed too. The rear carpets were next to go before Brian untied the wires holding the back of the hood to the car. The hood frame bolts were loosened to allow the hood frame to be removed.

The vinyl from the bottom edge of the rear seat was taken out, as were the cross-member carpets. Brian then removed the panels from below the rear seat and took the sill carpets out too. Brina finally went on to remove the front carpet and the kick carpets as well.

Our 1974 Volkswagen Beetle hasn’t been in the workshop very long but work has already begun to bring this classic and extremely popular car back to its former glory.
