It's been a while since we last posted, things at EvaResto HQ have been crazy the last couple of months. We're always grateful to all of our customers for keeping us busy.  Back in July we had Adrian's stunning 1967 Karmann Ghia in for the full EvaResto treatment. We fitted up our Bolt-on Premium Complete Air Ride kit (4" Narrowed Beam) with Airlift Performance 3P Management. And a bad-ass set of 17" detailed Fuch wheels.  From fully dropped to near stock height, with plenty of usable height. Such a lovely car to work on!  Thanks for reading! Products used - T1...

No stranger to a show-quality build, craig has done a great job of re-building this car to a top standard. On rebuild, the pre-existing Type 1 conversion beam with Monroe Air Shocks was re-used up front. This...

One of my own project cars here, my 1995 Mexican Import 1600i Beetle. I’ve always loved these late-model Mexican cars, and this low mileage Pearlescent green example ticked every box for me when I found it in February of this year. It was solid where it really mattered, un-messed-with and oozed pure potential! Some light structural and body work was taken out including: floor pan rear outer corners (around jack point area), rear bumper mounts, front valence, spare wheel well repairs and some small repairs to the front inner wings. Once this work was out of the way, the real...
