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.

This is just a short sample of what is on this DVD of the Australian VW
assembly line in the early 60s. Pretty amazing the way they make it look
so easy to put those buggers together.

sleeper vw bug
I took a 60 vw bug that was sitting for 25 years, rebuilt a motor for it,
and took it to the track. Didnt even wash it! to Prove whats on the outside
isnt what counts. Its what we DONT see that does. Motor is all VW with
stock block clearenced for stroker crank, stock crank is welded stroker,
has 92mm pistons to equal 2180, vw heads ported, and dual IDF webber
carbs. mild 125 engle cam. I know its not a super fast car like most other
videos on here, but for what it is, a stock bug with skinny 165 metric
tires, and a stock vw motor with very old hot rod technology, it does
pretty good. The way it is I a ran a 13.41@100mph on the stock tires.

Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
