Below are video clips and pdf files of Malcolm Beasley 1970 VW Convertible Restore #2, Summer 2011

The work time shown are the actual work time. Time spent researching and ordering parts and performing this documentation is not included. Minor workshop cleanup is included, but every so often during the project, Malcolm had to perform a major workshop cleanup which is not included. There is a companion text file (pdf) of this restoration that matches the video clips. Remember Malcolm is an amateur so use this guide at your OWN RISK! The procedures are just how I did it and may not be the preferred way of performing the task.           Enjoy!
