All seats were reduced to bare frames, and the drivers' seat was welded to fix a broken spring frame.
The owners requested two-tone velour fabric for the interior.
The dash restoration included new dash pad, new Pioneer stereo, and color-matched speaker grills and glove box door.


Plastic vapor barriers were added to the inside of doors to keep moisture away from the new door panels.



While assembling the seats, we installed seat heaters with a deluxe 3-temp heater kit.

Velour fabric was continued from the seats to the headliner. Extra padding was installed in the roof and around the luggage compartment area to reduce road noise.




Carpet-covered speaker panels were constructed to mount speakers in front compartment area.

Before laying down floor carpeting, we installed extra padding to reduce noise and provide insulation from cold or hot weather.
Once started, the project became more involved than originally anticipated. Rewerks kept in contact with the owners during the entire process to make sure they were aware of the progress and cost.




Restoration - 1972 Beetle

The owners of this 1972 Beetle purchased the car to be an extra vehicle to tow behind their motor home when traveling. During a trip, the car came unhitched and suffered some body damage. Several months later, the engine died and the owners decided to invest some time and attention into making it drivable again.

When the car arrived at Rewerks, the body had been completely painted. In addition to finishing the exterior assembly, we completed a full interior restoration. See details below.

Project completed April 2006
