"Bug Me Video" Presents
Type 1/Beetle Floor Pan Repair & Replacement
Volume six introduces you to the bodywork of your Beetle. While this VW DVD is focused on repairing the floor pans several tools and techniques that can be applied to many types of bodywork repairs are introduced. Both power and air tools are shown in action along with the pros and cons of each. When it comes to fastening the new floor pans in place you are shown how to do it with a MIG welder or by using metal screws allowing you to choose which method you feel most comfortable with. As usual, no experience is assumed and a good introduction to welding is provided.
Besides tools, a couple of different approaches to repairing floor pans are discussed, both with the body removed from the chassis of the car or doing it with the body in-place. Detailed instruction is provided on how to remove the body from the chassis. Body removal is shown for both standard and Super Beetles.
Besides using metal replacement pans, the DVD addresses using the "never rust" fibreglass boards. As with all the DVDs differences between the VW models are highlighted. In particular, the reinforced convertible beetles are discussed at length as they have some special features that need to be taken into account.
