Panel beater in Wollongong/Sydney


Hi all,

Does anyone know of a panel beater/smash repairer located in the Wollongong or Sydney area that specialises in VW's (specifically beetles)?

Any help would be much appreciated,
Thanks in advance :)

Hello mate, K&D smash unanderra 10min south of the gong- they have done a heap of beetle/kombi restos. They do a lot of paint & panel for Wayne Penrose.
Also Raw auto werks Campbelltown POLAK's number can be loated on this site.
Hope this helps.

Here is a link to RAW

Mike and Adam work on my car and i highly recommend them however they are more restorers than panel beaters although they do a lot of work not sure what you need done

On that

Does any1 know roughly how much it would be to get a bug sprayed by a professional if i get the panelwork as close as i can get it, and the pro to finish the panelwork off ?

Last time i got my uncle a ex-panelbeater to spray one, but it was in the garage so not the best

thnx

Jeremy,

looks like your at a similar stage to me I have ordered some wheels from /rod Penrose and will then get the RAW guys to install drop spindles to lower my bug. I will then get the carpet, seats etc upholstered.

Planning on a professional respray in a few years time. It depends what type of finish you want You dont get anything for nothing in this world, a good spray job requires a lot of work but in the end it all comes down to personal choice. For me I will do all the mechanicals etc and just enjoy the bug then in a few years do a respray with the help from the guys at RAW.

Even if you give Adam a call to discuss or pay them a visit you will be impressed in the work they do.

Yeah I live round the crner from Rod, and I go to his brother Wayne wen there is anything I can't fix myself.

Unfortunatly th bug I'm doin was off the road for a while due to rust, so in my case I'll have to do paint first and register it befor I really look at much else. I wanna get this one done to become my daily driver then I'll sell the blue vert that I have.

Yea I'm not sure which way I really wannaofo, I want to paint it two tone, black with red sides, but I was thinking if I cant get the panel work perfect it will look shit so my next option was satin black and a flat red or Red with cream side or sumthin along those line. Ima student so I don't have the money to really pay too much for a panelbeater.

Most of the work I got done on my other bug I got done for next to nuthing cause my dad knows ppl and could work out trades at his work. Except the convertible top by Karen at Wayne penrose vw's.
