Cabral's Westie

1978 VW Westie Camper

Before

Seems that every Dub that hails from Florida bears the same markings – rust. Lots of it. When Cabral’s 1978 VW Westie Camper arrived at the shop, it quickly became clear that he’d need to spend the bulk of his restoration project budget on metal work to remove the rust. Not great news. Good thing our boneyard had a better option. Take the core from the yard and the bus from Florida, do a little swapping of shells, and the project moved forward.
