We have bought in a paint scheme, well several schemes in fact so now we have more in house features.

So with our new schemes we can now colour match and make any colour you want.

And for anyone that wants to know we have a Lechler, Max Mayer and a sikkens

So with this in mind we repainted a buggy...

With added sparkles and pearls

First Subaru gears gearbox built and ready for install.

Image

Image

This is a fully reversed running 5 speed turbo gearbox capably of running 400bhp, this is going in a 1302s beetle we are building which will be running 300bhp.

Simba the pickup is having a box just like this built for its Subaru turbo transplant.
