1973 VW T2 Campervan

Ady and Toby have been stripping down our 1973 VW T2 Campervan in preparation for bodywork and painting. Now the vehicle is completely stripped, the shell will then get acid dipped to remove rust. From there any nessasary welding and bodywork preparation can be carried out before it’s repainted.

The camper has now been fully stripped and is loaded up to be acid dipped.

Stripping our 1973 VW T2

We have already begun work stripping our 1973 Volkswagen T2 camper. Ady, with a little help from Toby, who will be completely all of the welding once the camper returns, are busy removing everything from the vehicle ready for the chemical dipping process to begin. The body shell will handed over to Prostrip with nothing more to remove; the running gear will all go, the doors and windows will be removed and the shell will be ready and waiting for the dipping stage.

Prostrip has developed Phos-Strip™, a chemical dip process for the removal of paint, rust and underseal from complete car shells or individual panels. Its chemical formulation strips away contaminants from all internal and external areas.

Beginning the restoration journey mid 2020 – 1973 VW T2

We are expecting our 1973 Volkswagen T2 to join us mid 2020 to start the restoration journey. The VW T2 is a joint wedding gift to the current owners and being a master carpenter the interior will be a treated to full bespoke rebuild. The camper will be in with us to have the body work repaired and to undergo a full re-paint inside and out.

Our first task will be to chemical treat the body shell to reveal all imperfections and to remove all dead metal so we can then repair to the highest of standards.
