Long summer days with actual real sunshine in them, meant that plenty of cars appeared out of hiding and headed towards the workshop in order to make the most of it.
PJ's Pearl White 1965 VW Splitscreen Westfalia came by for a full service and a CSP disc brake conversion prior to a trip across Europe to European Bug In 5. PJ decided whilst we were at it, he fancied changing the wheels to chromed and detailed Fuchs replicas. The results were a pretty impressive stance and a much improved drive. He also popped in, in his beautiful Beryl green 1963 Beetle running an Aire Valley beam and air ride system that we fitted earlier this year.
Vic and Jude's Bahama Blue 1965 VW Beetle had been suffering from use as a slammed daily driver on the pothole ridden streets around Brighton and Hove, so in it came for a full running gear service, brake check and a pair of fresh shock absorbers at the rear.
A chance wrong turn earlier in the year led to meeting a friendly bodyshop owner with a couple of cool US import Type 2 VWs. The early bay had a few gear selection issues which were diagnosed and rectified before the camper went off to live with its proud new keepers in Basingstoke.
Being in the car scene for so many years, we have made a lot of good friends and contacts. One of those, Craig owns a very good example of a Razor edge Karmann Ghia that had stalled as a project. With a day spent catching up over spanner swinging, we had it rolling and ready to recover to the workshop with the help of our tame recovery truck drivers.
