This Volkswagen T25 Auto Sleeper Campervan came to us in September for a full bodywork/sheel resto. Overall the van was is good condition having been well looked after by its owners, but it had also been well used with frequent trips over Europe.
The van arrived in the Coast workshop with the inside stripped out and ready to go.....once we had removed the windows the actual metal work repairs took only a couple of weeks in 'Dirty Corner' before going off to be painted in its fresh top coat. Upon its return it was built back up using as many of the orginal parts as possible, although it was treated to a new skylight, window seals and body vents. We were also briefed to overhaul the brakes with new hubs/pads/bearings and stainless steel brake lines and a complete underbody wax treatment was its finale which should offer a lot of protection against the wet and wild winter we are forecast!
At the start of the resto the owners were still unsure whether they were 100% making the correct decision restoring this 25 year old camper or whether they would be better off investing their money into a newer model, Yet their faces on collection today clearly showed they had made the right decision.
The Coast VW team would like to wish them (and their grandchildren) many more happy years in their restored camper.
