    1971 VW deluxe microbus
    Kassan Red w/Pastel White

    Client was wishing to get their bus looking good again. Paint was somewhat dull, lifeless and oxidized, massive amounts of dirt/grime embedded, full of swirls, scratches and some chips. Original single stage paint.


    The ‘details’:

    Mckee’s37 N914 waterless wash.
    Dodo Born slippery clay lube.
    Medium clay mitt.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Flex 3401/Beast.
    Flex pixie
    Rupes iBrid.
    6” foam pads.
    Blackfire One Step.
    Blackfire Midnight Sun Carnauba.
    Adam’s VRT tire dressing.
    Adam’s glass cleaner.
    Pinnacle leather and vinyl cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.

    Thanks for looking at this cool VW bus!

    Sizzle Chest:

    What an excellent, excellent job on this VW Microbus. "Fillmore" from Pixar`s animated "Cars" movie is envious, to say the least.
    Is this the original paint and vinyl interior on and in this VW?? If it is, it`s more than a survivor despite its lower mileage.

    I will also say this: this is one of the few vehicles that you have detailed that looks "slightly out-of-place" in front for your home in the photos. Then again a lot of German-made vehicles end up in front of your home, and rightly so!!

    Double take!!

    I thought my sister made her way to your side for a detail. It looks so close to her Bus!

    I need to go remove a scratch from hers some day. When I do, I`ll come back and post a few pics. (It won`t be a full correction, detail, etc. just that scratch)

    Nice work on this one
