Our 1976 VW T2 Westfalia has made its way up to the hanger after a thorough polish to finish its service. We can’t believe how good its looking now! Next up, a photoshoot…
Mauro has replaced the rear brake cylinders in our 1976 VW Westfalia T2 to resolve the leak.
This stunning ray of sunshine is our new 1976 VW Westfalia T2 Bay Campervan that just arrived today, in perfect timing for the upcoming stay-cation summer! We’ve got a few bits to do on it to neaten it up but otherwise its almost ready to go! Keep your eyes peeled to see what’s going to happen to this little yellow camper…
Here’s some lovely photos from the previous owner of them enjoying camping in it and even using it as a vehicle for both their son’s weddings.
Our beautiful 1973 VW T2 had its primer applied post acid bath.
Unfortunately, the process of removing the rust revealed a bigger than expected project underneath so the owner took the decision to store the VW and resume its work next year.
We’re excited to re-start work on this in 2021 as we know this T2 is going to look amazing when restored to its former glory!
In with us for a full respray, this T2 has been taken back to bare metal. The Camper has been fully stripped down before the chassis and bodywork was submerged in its acid bath. The acid bath removes rusted metal, under-seal and paint, giving our paint shop technicians a blank canvas to work from.
Taking the car back to bare metal gives the best possible results for a full respray. It also allows for any welding work and repairs to be carried out.
As you can see from our photos, there is a substantial amount of rusted out metal that that acid bath has removed. Chris has washed the car over in grey primer to stop any rust attacking the metal while it’s in a bare state.
The next stages of work for the T2 will see Antony welding in fresh metal to the rusted out areas.
