Mechanical to Full Pan-Off
Ready to take that step and finally have that classic Volkswagen of your dreams? We’re ready! We offer a wide variety of services from just getting your old friend safely back on the road to full customs where every last piece is better than new.
Let’s get obsessive! Bring us your old VW and let us know you dream. Not really sure? Let’s sit down and get some ideas going! We’ll walk you through the entire design process and nail down just where you want us to go. Style, color, interior, engine (hopefully more power!), wheels tire, suspension, bumpin’ tunes, go fast bits, custom bits and maybe even an A/C. We’re going to figure it out together. No matter if you want a full pan-off restoration, a mechanical restoration or a little something in between, this is the part where we can get to know each other and really formulate a solid plan.
If you are going full pan-off, then your whole car has to come apart. We mean everything: bolts, trim, windows, gaskets, handles, logos, engine, transmission, wheel, brakes. Rust, mud, nests, bugs, oil stains all have to go. We will review what we can save and make recommendations on what should be replace. We’re not going to try to sell you something you don’t need or don’t want, that’s just not the way we roll. We strive to keep our clients for life and treat everyone like family.
Now it’s getting good. The whole body and pan are going to be made right again, rust and dents be gone! Parts will be getting ordered and showing up daily. Your engine will be completely stripped down and reviewed. (Unless you are going for a full replacement.) Once the pan is ready and painted, we’ll get to all the chassis work. Body work will continue until the rust is gone and everything is straight. Engine and transmission work will continue. Have you dropped by the shop yet to check on your baby? I bet you have. Did you have some custom elements in the works? They are probably taking shape by now. Chassis is back together and paint is done. We texted you a picture of us lifting the body onto the pan, good luck at getting any work done for the rest of the day. Our seat guy just dropped off your interior, better let you know about that as well. You should drop by to hear it fire up for the first time. Yeah, that big cam and turbo sound cool as hell.
Then the day comes, you pick up your ride and can’t quit smiling. Whether your off for a casual cruise, to the car show or the drag strip, we’re here to make that dream come true.
Almost the same as above minus the complete tear down. We are going to go over every nook, cranny and part to see what can stay and what needs to be replaced. The main goal here is to make your car as safe and reliable as possible. We are not going to sell you anything you don’t need. You will get a full list of have to replace to you might want to consider this.
Once we have a plan, we’re going to get at it. Everything is getting cleaned up and out. Parts and fluids will be replaced, brakes will be services, seals will be installed and adjustments will be made. Your engine will run better than it ever has. Did we mention how good we are at buffing out old paint? Let’s get you shiny! We encourage all of our clients to drop by and see how it is going on these longer projects. We’ll even try to send you a few shots along the way.
Before you know it, the day will come. You will hardly believe how good your baby looks when we give it back. You’ll be back on the road and more confident than ever.
