Rebuild of the beach buggy featured in an earlier video here. The chassis
was holed and I replaced it with another from an early sixties beetle.
Chassis was cut down by about a foot to match the body and fibreglass body
was repaired and repainted. After it was re-registered as a road-legal
buggy I also repaired the leaking push rod tubes and repainted the engine
