This week we are excited to have a classic Mark 1 VW Golf convertible in the VFR Motors Leicester workshop. This classic VW Golf has come in for detailing and general spa treatment to get it car show ready.
Classic Car Show Ready
We had a recent enquiry from the Golf’s owner to see if we could improve the look of the vehicle to get it ready for the summer car show season. The owner had a list of improvements including:
- Suspension reconditioning. We’re completely removing the car’s suspension then reconditioning and painting.
- Clean and tune the engine. The engine will be completely removed and the engine bay painted. We will tune the engine in our Leicester workshop and a professional spray painter will come in to repaint the engine bay.
- Polish / paint all the ancillaries. We’re detailing the radiator, alternator, rocker cover, and brake servo.
- Fit a new convertible hood. The old hood is torn and cracked. We are sourcing and fitting a whole new hood for the vehicle.
- Interior valeting. The finishing touches will be a thorough clean and sprucing up of the car’s interior.
As well as the classic car detailing treatment, the Golf convertible will get the full VFR Motors service, MOT, and any mechanical repairs that are needed along the way.
This is a great project for our apprentice Lukasz who has taken it on with gusto. You can see the hard work he’s been putting in on the VW detailing project in the gallery below. Look how well that suspension has scrubbed up!
