1972 VW Beetle Restoration - Rear Quarter Rust Repair
This 1972 VW Super Beetle is undergoing a full pan off Restoration at
Kiddy's Classics in Jensen Beach, FL. - http://www.kiddysclassics.com -
Like most Florida Beetle's this one has its fair share rust that needs
repair. In this video you will see photos of the step-by-step process of
removing the rust, and welding the new patch panels in place for a correct
repair. The patches are hammered and dollied smooth and then lead (auto
body solder) is used in place of bondo or other plastic fillers for a
repair that will last for years to come.
