In this series we will follow Søren Rasmussen and his team at Angora Restoration and their latest project, a 1952 split window convertible VW Beetle.
We follow this project all the way from the first day the car gets put on the Celette car frame machine, all the discoveries he makes inside the frame of this car , removing all the rusted out places and then onto fabricating and replacing parts.
The frame machine with jigs is a valuable tool in restorations like this, because at all times you can see if the car and the new and fabricated parts are lining up the way they should be and don’t cause any problems later on in the assembly
This is part 1 of our miniseries
