One thing off the bucket list!!!
A Bug’s life
I am super proud to achieve a life long ambition to be featured in Performance VW magazine. From early teens I have read every edition of this best selling VW tuning magazine. When I started working on the beetle I never would have imagined she would get a feature mainly because Performance VW feature water-cooled cars, so was ecstatic to find they where putting together a retro special issue to include our air cooled Beetle .
The article tells the story from sensible road car from Ireland to drag racer to show car. They even agreed to put Ted the schnauzer ( the original hipster) in the feature which is really cool.
The article shows the level professional detailers go to chase perfection. In a world today where everyone is a detailer, valeters are now ditching the term valeter and calling themselves detailers because it sounds better. Its becoming increasing unclear what professional detailing is. Is it just someone with a OCD obsession or is it a skilled paint defect correction process? The Bug as had over 50 Hours of Biff’s Best In Show Detail to showcase her as a promotional car. This level is not needed on every car, however everyone can benefit from enhancing and protecting their asset by a professional who understands car paint’s limitations.
So if you fancy a read of the a bug’s life and the beetle’s full spec you can subscribe to Performance VW magazine http://shop.kelsey.co.uk/pvw .
