    I'm looking to get some quotes for a full respray with some rust work also.
    Can anyone recommend any good places in Melb (preferrably that they've had similar work done with)?
    We're in the western suburbs but anywhere in Melb is fine.
    I'm not looking for showroom stuff, just decent work at a reasonable price.

    Also what are the pitfalls to avoid when getting something like this done?

    Did you check out the Kombi Services Map in the Stuck threads?

    Go Marty!

    We just got Bert done at Aus VW Performance Centre in Croydon - get it back tomorrow in fact. We'd hoped for just a quick rust cut and spray, but the cancer was everywhere... They are very professional, but certainly not cheap.

    Let me know if you find somewhere good out west, and good luck!

    Geeze Rowan, I know I'm old and crusty :oops: but never been to VW performance although a good lube and valve grind and de-coke could do me some good

    Cheers,
    Bert :p

    PS. just kidding seeing names are the same and more surpisingly spelt correctly

    Good luck Rowan with Bert. I had Wayne done at VW Performance, had some post work problems both with paint and with mechanical. Paint bubbling after 3 years!!! Had to get an oil cooler installation completely re done. Front Beam welding was very poor. Spent $10k to do and $5k to fix, go figure. Currently having work done on my ’64 SC by VW Dubwerks in Geelong Ian Terry Phn 0425 304675 Have looked at his work and it looks good.

    If it were me I'd be going to Autoshape Restaration in Geelong. Best quality work in the area, and a good price too. If you want the best give Hodgey a ring.
    Knows VW's inside out and excellent paint work.
