The Bodywork

Introduction

Repairing the bodywork on the 1972 VW Beetle. When I bought the Beetle I thought that is was almost perfect. But soon the problems became visible. Rust, rust and more rust. Rob has done much welding for me. Most of the rust was at the connections of the fenders and the heating channels.

Repairing the front-left quarter on the 1972 VW Beetle. I first stripped the rubber coating out the wheel arches to search for the rust.

And I found many rust spots.

Repairing the door on the 1972 VW Beetle. Even the doors had to be repaired. It would have been more easy if I bought new ones.

Repairing the front-right quarter on the 1972 VW Beetle. After Rob welded in new material I started with the body filler.

Repairing the rear-left quarter on the 1972 VW Beetle. Removed the back side to do the Baja conversion.
