Full Restoration on a Volkswagen Split-screen Campervan
Such an honour to be able to do the full works on this old Volkswagen Split-screen campervan…
This is a work in progress and this post will be updated regularly with our progress…
This Split initially came to us just for an engine conversion. It had already been repaired and painted in the USA but it soon became obvious that all was not well under the shiny paint and so it was decided to see what lay beneath. After a full soda blasting session what came back was pretty comprehensive list of panels that needed repair, with virtually nothing on the van escaping the need for repair in some form. So we have begun the process of replacing and repairing all those parts.
Once that is out the way we can get on to the fun bit… putting the Subaru engine in!

When can we drive it?
