How to Restore Volkswagen (bay Window) Bus: Enthusiast's Restoration Manual (Enthusiast's Restoration Manual Series)
By: Mark Paxton (author)Paperback
The only book currently available that comprehensively deals with the realities of restoring a VW Bay Window Bus. With over 1500 mainly colour photos, it guides the reader clearly through body and chassis repairs, paint work, interior re-trimming and most common mechanical problems. The skills, techniques and even the tools needed to complete these tasks are explained in jargon free language, to ensure that even those enthusiasts with no previous restoration experience will feel confident in sorting out their Bus. An indispensable and unique guide for lovers of these fast appreciating classics.
Mark Paxton acquired his first VW Bus, a split screen van, nearly 30 years ago, followed by a Bay and then a few Beetles. A period without owning any of VW's iconic flat fours whilst running a garage dedicated to more Gallic motors was compensated for by a steady flow of friends' Buses to work on, which eased the pain. A move into classic car and motorcycle journalism was followed by the chance to write this book and intimately reacquaint himself with the innermost workings of the Bay Window Transporter.
