Before starting Brickfield VWs in 1993 I'd done my mechanical apprenticeship working for the BBC on fleet vehicles .
After qualifying I did a spell at a Jag dealer before working for a local firm for five years doing general mechanics on all makes of car.
I've been into Vdubs since school and got a bug as my first car, converted it to a Baja and kept it for about 10 years.
At present I have a '72 bug, a '72 bay window and a 66 split

I've done restos on Karmann Ghias, Type 1s, 2s and 3s, split campers and bay campers, some back to stock, some cal look and some with modifications. Not all the work I do is restoration - I also carry out MOT work, welding, servicing and repairs as well as lowering and engine work. Some customers like to contract me for the whole job start to finish (I've even been known to build bespoke interiors if necessary). Some customers like to do as much work as they can themselves and bring their vehicle to me for welding or spraying - either way is fine with me and I'm always happy to give advice
