New Vid Tip on VW Seat Upholstery, Making and Installing

This video is not professionally shot by any means, but you can see how to go about getting your own fabric to make your own seats in your VW.  This is a two part video.  I personally get most of my fabric already sewn up from a great shop in TX called Sewfine or Lenny Copp’s West Coast Classic Restorations in CA.  They can do any color combo I want, they sew it up for me, ship it, and I just put em on the frames.  But if you want to get creative and take a stab at sewing your own, follow these videos.  I plan on having a DVD made up on how I do my seats.

Part 1.

Part 2.

My ’55 Ragtop getting featured in October fall issue of HotVWs Mag.

Yeah I just got the call this week that my 1955 Ragtop Beetle that I have been tootling around with this past year is getting featured in the October issue of HotVWs Magazine.  So be on the lookout, I’ll keep you all posted of course.  I was approached last year by them on the car, but they finally are getting around to it now.

My off hours 1967 project is coming along nicely

This could just be the fastest project I have ever put together.

My 1953 Ragtop project finally coming back this weekend from paint.

We actually had to repaint this whole car again, the first color we shot it with did not look right, now she looks marvelous.  Stay tuned.

Have a great Weekend Guys,
