‘Vinnie’

A Wonderful Restoration for DUBBIES

Vinnie is a 1965 VW Split Screen campervan from San Francisco.

One of the orginal ‘hippy vans’, Vinnie no doubt played a full part in the Summer of Love and was probably in attendance for one of San Francisco’s Beatles concerts or Vietnam protests.

On a misty morning 52 years later in rural Oxfordshire, Vinnie entered our lives. The Dubbies team fell instantly in love – there was no doubt that Vinnie was ‘the one’.

At the end of 2017, Vinnie began to be lovingly converted by The VW Camper Company, to not only look even more amazing (we know what VW enthusiasts expect!), but [...]

Full Restoration

For those rare acts of true VW Camper love
CLASSIC FULL RESTORATIONS Nothing gives us greater pleasure than that call from a truly passionate VW Camper lover who has got their hands on a classic van in a terrible state. 'Is it even possible?' they say as they gaze at their rusty heap. It usually is and whilst we never make promises we can't keep, knowing from years of experience just what we are capable of is very satisfying. For the client of course it is the beginning of a wonderful journey which we share enjoyably as their car develops from a lost cause into something even better than the original version. With modern adjustments, we can really make not just dreams come true, but deliver well beyond original expectations.

Bodyshop

A Timeless Iconic Body
WE ONLY DO A PROPER JOB We have our own in-house body shop and full-time staff to run it. It’s exclusively for classic car restoration, we don’t do blow-overs or knock dents out of Taxi’s. We just restore classic cars to a very high standard. We always remove all the windows, doors, bumpers etc and use high quality paints and materials. The main problem with all of these 30 odd year old vehicles is rust. There are 2 main types that affect the longevity of any paint job: There is real bad stuff that perforates the metal leaving holes in the painted surface. The only way to remove it is to cut it out and weld in fresh steel. Great care must be taken to not store up more problems for later and a skilled welder will use a butt welding process that leaves the finished surface as smooth as possible, minimising the use of filler to finish off the surface. And the (apparently) not so bad stuff that sits on top of the metal and bubbles up through the surface. This is the rust that keeps coming back. Body-shops try sanding it off, grinding through it, painting chemicals over it or just hoping it will go away. It rarely does no matter how hard one tries. We have recently invested in a brand new media blasting machine from the market leade [...]
