Re: RHD 1954 Samba

Re: VW Restorers in Cornwall, uk

Both Matt's are excellent, Matt Smith recently finished a huge project for me and i cant recommend him and Bob enough. Try his mobile he always answers. Id imagine both have some degree of waiting list to get booked in but both will be well worth the wait. Matt Smiths mobile is 07791 596 199
