1972 vw camper restoration

This 1972 camper van came to us in a very poor state and in need of a full restoration. Virtually every panel was replaced due to rust  and previous poor repairs. As well as all the cut and welded sections the panels that were replaced included both inner and outer sills, inner and outer quarter sections, front panel, front bumper bar, both doors, both front inner and outer arches, front floor pan and rear boot panel. After all the restoration was complete it was painted inside and out in Porsche gts red with a cream top half.
