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. • The Volkswagen Beetle is the highest-selling, longesttenured automobile on a single platform of all time • This book presents how-to restoration methods for the VW Beetle—a first in the industry • The authors of this book have hundreds of combined years of expertise in restoring Volkswagen Beetles
