Restorations

Here is a Volkswagen 21 window Deluxe Microbus that we found in Washington and completed a highend turnkey restoration. 

1963 Volkswagen 15 Window Walk-thru Deluxe Microbus. This bus has a great story for us. There was a lead given to us that there was a bus in a backyard sitting in Washington. Not wanting to miss out on getting another bus we got to work. Two friends of ours were close by in a few cities over and they were kind enough to go down and check it out. Sure enough there was this beautiful 15 window Deluxe sitting in a field.

This bus found a great customer who loves the bus the way it is. He asked us to do the metal restoration and we have already started. With him wanting to keep the bus in the patina form we decide to sandblast the underside, engine area, cargo and front floor, and about 14 inches up the bus. Now we can see where all the rust is and have order the metal. Once we are done we will then match the paint from the top half of the bus to the bottom. This is going to be a fun build. Can't wait to see it finished. 

We did not have to go far for this bus for it was right in our back yard. Bought it from a couple that traveled around the US in it and front the looks of the bus they had a great time. As always the bus had a good amount of rust so we decide to get it blasted to see where the rust was hiding. Once we did that we got to work to get the rust out and the new metal in. After completing the rust repair the bus sat until it was purchased by a gentleman overseas. Where he had plans to do the body work and paint.  

Here was a local bus that we found and thought is was a really solid bus and thought to block sand it out and put a new paint job on it. After sanding it down we found alot of rust that we had to take care of. In a small time it turned into a complete restoration. 

Great clinent of ours had this 1965 13 Window Deluxe with nose damage and rust problems. We tackled the rust and nose damage then did the bodywork and paint for him. He wanted to assemble the bus so we sent it off to him to finish it up. Hope to see the finished bus driving on the road soon. 

We found this bus in Montana and shipped it over to us. We were took that another shop had done metal work on it and it was ready to block out and paint. When we got there was some many things wrong we decided to blast is again and see what needed to be done. Boy were we surprised, there was a ruff attempt to fix the rust and damage on this bus. So we went to work and did what we always do, replace everything that needs to be replaced. This bus was a treat for us as we have beeen getting some real challenges through our shop. 

This 1966 21 Window had a rough life. With it being for Minnesota it had more rot then normal. After getting it sandblasted and going over the bus we decided a new frame from a donor bus was in order. So that is what we did. It was a fun project to tackle and happy we were able to save another samba bus. Customer took it from us and will be doing the body work, paint, and assembly. 

Here is a Chevy Camaro that we did for a client. We got the task to block sand it out and refinish it. He wanted to do the assembly on the Camaro. We wish him luck. 

We can do any type of restoration to all types of makes and models. I guess over the years I am getting a name for Volkswagens but we love to do all types.
