1964 VW Beetle Convertible

LHR Fender – Repair

This video illustrates the repair process on the rear fender of a VW Beetle Convertible.

The cracks that were visible in the fender panel were the result of a failed attempt to repair a vertical fracture. The extent of the damage was assessed and a new replacement panel was fabricated to the size required. The damaged area was then cut out completely the new replacement panel was aligned and fully welded.

  1. My 72 HQ Kingswood was rusting in those usually spots and having done a little research for local fabricators I kept coming back to Rene based on the quality of workmanship I was seeing and word of mouth. From the initial vehicle inspection Rene was professional and passionate about the task ahead and was able to provide a rough quote to address those issues. His eye for detail and understanding of what needed to be done in addition to what might be unforeseen problems made the process transparent and honest.

    Vehicle integrity, a guarantee to restore to the best of his abilities and constant communication with me of budget adjustments or parts needed made the project easy. This was my first major financial investment in the Kingswood since purchasing it and even though the final bill changed I can recommend Rene for the highest of quality of service, knowledge and future proofing of what some of us prize.

    I would not hesitate to visit Rene again for not only a post vehicle/work inspection but to continue the work on restoring other issues he observed.

    Thanks Rene for all your time and effort in bringing the “Q” back to glory.
