VW 1962 splitscreen restoration

Post by Justwill » Sun Jul 29, 2018 4:49 pm

I’m looking to get my LHD 1962 split screen fully restored and would like advice about who to get to do it. I live near Hereford and would ideally like the van to be restored within an hour and a halves drive from here so I can keep an eye on her. I want to get her stripped back to bare metal, lowered, new running gear etc... fully restored. Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks.
Peace and love
Will
