Next, we media-blast the entire chassis, weld-in & seam-seal new top-quality floorpans, install a new front axle assembly & rebuild rear suspension complete with an all new brake system.
At the same time, build a new air-cooled engine & transaxle to your specifications, original or otherwise, or replace it completely with an all-new Genuine Darryl's™ zero-mile turnkey engine of your choice.
The completed chassis is then seam-sealed, painted, and undercoated or upgraded to a durable powder-coated finish.
Volkswagen OEM Glasurit® finishes are available.
Phase 3: Interior
We carefully remove all the old upholstery, taking care to preserve anything we can as we go.
Next, we repair, and powder-coat the seat frames. Then we install new top-quality padding, upholstery, door & quarter panels, headliner & carpet.
Every Darryl’s restoration is carefully inspected, adjusted, aligned, and lubricated before it leaves, so it is ready for the show- or the road.
