VW Thing Restoration

We got our start eleven years ago repairing and restoring primarily classic, air-cooled VWs. Although a majority of the restoration work we do now is on later model water-cooled campers, we still enjoy restoring and servicing the classics. For years, we had seen this ratty old 1974 VW Thing running around town. The owner actually worked across the street from us and has been using it as his daily driver for 25+ years. With just a few short weeks left until retirement from his longtime job, he decided it was time to get the Thing restored. There were a lot of hidden surprises as we dug into this project, but thanks to the guy over at Ken’s Auto Body here in San Luis Obispo, all the hidden body issues got fixed, and man did the paint turn out great! Check back soon to see the finished project.
