Paul’s cool ‘59 Beetle came into us a while back for it’s first UK MOT. We have just completed a bit of work to make the car ride a whole lot smoother. We’ve lifted the rear end up a little and fitted full adjustable spring plates with a 2′’ drop built in, great for cars that are running really low we also installed some sealed wheel bearings as the standard bearings wouldn’t get any oil, A pair of new shocks so Paul has got suspension on the rear. We noticed the rear wheel bolts where a tapered set instead of the radius fitment they should be for standard wheels so we swapped them out next was to set a ride height for the front air beam then track the car up so it drives in a straight line. Now a perfect cruiser ready for the summer.

Scott’s sweet 1963 beetle came for MOT, which it needed a little bit of love to get it through but nothing to serious. Still sitting pretty after we stanced it out a few years back.

After 10 years of being stood on Mike’s drive he decided it was time to get his 1303 running again. So we set to on recommissioning the beetle with only a few parts needed like a new distributor as the old one had seized, a service and some fresh fuel it then sparked into life. Once we got it tuned up we put it through it’s MOT to get it legal, With only a minor bit of welding needed and a brake overhaul for safety, This beetle is ready for the summer ahead.
