Perhaps the most charismatic automobile ever, the Volkswagen Beetle was
the longest-running, most-manufactured automobile on a single platform
of all time. From 1938 to 2003, more than 21.5 million “Bugs” were
assembled, distributed, and sold on nearly every continent in the world.
Throughout the Beetle’s successful run, many of these cars have been
relegated to project car status due to their age or condition. Airkooled
Kustoms, a VW restoration shop in Hazel Green, Alabama, brings its
expertise in restoring these cars to book form with this
all-encompassing compilation. Restoring your Beetle is covered through
step-by-step sequences from unbolting that first nut through polishing
the paint on your freshly restored Bug. The specialists at Airkooled
Kustoms walk you through the proper disassembly methods, restoring
versus replacing components, and reassembling your restored Bug,
covering everything related to the body, undercarriage, and interior
along the way.
It’s about time a thorough, hands-on restoration book has been authored
by authorities who know the Beetle like the back of their hands. With
this book, you will have everything you need to bring your old or new VW
Beetle project back to life.
