VW Restorers in Cornwall, uk

Post by MintyWhite »

Hi All,

Im looking to get my 57 RHD kombi in for body work and spraying, and potentially full build up (its currently in my garage having been dismantled, dipped and red oxide primed).

However, I'm based in Cornwall...

Does anyone know of restorers in Cornwall? Any experiences and costs would be handy to know too.

Thanks,
Clint

Smiths or Airkraft are the guys to go see.

Thanks BDP.

I have been trying Smiths since before Christmas (I think they are fairly busy), but I'll keep on it.

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

Trailer Queen Restos are down there too and have a good reputation.

Evil Ben’s is superb although tends to be more mechanical rather than body work but he does do both.
