Kevin Salt’s SoCal VW Bug
SoCal VW bug
It really is a SoCal paint job … It only looks at its best in sunshine … And over here in the Netherlands it’s only sunny for a few weeks every year. All the pearl products used on the paint job are from Paint With Pearl and that’s everything apart from the candy concentrate, the base black and the the clear.
Lemme see .. Base coat plain black overshot with a mix of 90% black pearl 10% anthracite pearl … on top of that was gold ghost pearl with a pinch of platinum crystal pearl … the ghost flames were gold ghost pearl with gold sparkle pearl highlighting around the edges and on the points … then the whole lot was shot over with blood red candy concentrate in clear … All the pearls used were from PWP
Black / platinum pearl mix, platinum crystal and gold ghost over that, blood red candy on top …. flames in gold ghost and gold sparkle pearl

The humble Volkswagen Beetle has served as a blank canvas for a staggering range of offbeat projects, from the Meyers Manx dune buggy to a museum's worth of art cars.
This custom 1974 Volkswagen Beetle convertible isn't as radical as some, such as this nifty wrought iron-bodied bug or this thing, but it's sure to draw heads -- for better or for worse -- wherever it goes. Heavy on attempted style, short on taste, the droptop has something for everyone. Almost.
Seeking the art deco look of a 1940 Ford with the reliability of a VW? Want the flair of a 1948 Chrysler Town & Country convertible coupled with the varnish-free maintenance of a 1984 Chrysler Town & Country convertible?
This golden buggy has you covered, so long as you're willing to accept a few stylistic compromises -- and fork over $23,500 (or best offer).
The seller claims that the front end was a dealer-installed option produced by JC Whitney. We'll let you decide whether that pedigree is a boon or a bane.
Like the incredible Corvette Caballista we showed you a few months ago, the Beetle is offered for sale in Florida. Check out the full ad and complete photo gallery at Hemmings.

2012 SEMA Auto Show: Volkswagen Beetle
Beach Battle Cruiser
Inspired by the ’California-look’ of the Beetle in the old days, known magazine publisher European Car Magazine decided to bring back the look and feel of the ol’ surf Beetle and, judging by the picture, they have done a great job.
Apart from the Über cool paint-job, the bug is powered by the same turbocharged 2.5L engine but with a slight twist. The engine now produces 400bhp. Though that much power is not surprising in the world of aftermarket bugs, it still is very powerful. At 256bhp, the Golf R is an agile and fast hatch, so, imagine a 400bhp VW Beetle!
Set to create a new definition for the word ’cool,’ this Beetle impressed the fine audience at the SEMA Auto Show.
If the 400bhp in the Beach Battle Cruiser isn’t enough, take a look at this.
What VW fan site, VWVortex, has done is teamed up with known tuners APR to execute the site’s plan of building one the most powerful bugs to date. Called the Super Beetle, the power of this car definitely justifies it’s name. It’s powered by the same 2.5L turbo engine but, with APRs tuning skills, it now produces more than 500BHP. That’s supercar territory for a car that used to be a chick car.
Along with the upgrades in the performance dept, the car features a blue vinyl film and a new set of Formula TR wheels.
The ’Super Beetle’ showed the audience that even a cute, little VW Beetle can also smoke some of it’s supercar counter-parts. Or attempt to.
Wheel manufacturers Rotiform decided to make their take on the Volkswagen Beetle, old-school. It features a new rear axle for an Air Lift air suspension system, a feature that people enjoyed in a Citroen DS21. With that fitting, the car now is modified along the lines of the best modified air-cooled Beetles.
Along with the ’walk down memory lane’, the Rotiform Beetle also features a new set of custom, red concave wheels designed and forged by Rotiform.
“Chopped Top” Beetle
The Volkswagen "Chopped Top" Beetle receives a similar make-up treatment that hot-rod enthusiasts love. It is based on the 2013 VW Beetle Turbo, which means it features a 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and a 6-speed transmission. There’s no mention of any additions to the engine, so we assume that it remains bone stock.
On the outside, GAS doused it with an Onyx Black base coat and accented the sides with Candy Apple Red metal-flake paint, giving it an awesome look. GAS then took to the top of the Beetle, hacking 5.5 inches off of the A-pillar and 2.5 inches off of the B-pillar, giving it that classic chop-top look, while retaining the classic humped roofline.
With this cool treatment from Galpin Auto Sports, this Beetle definitely is home at the SEMA Auto Show.
Custom VW Restoration - Paint That'll Make You Drool
Airkooled Kustoms custom VW restoration shop is known for "doing it right." There's nowhere that's more visible than in our paint. No 50/50 jobs here - you know, looks good at 50 yards if you're driving 50 mph past it. In fact, the closer you come, the more closely you look, the better the finish looks.
This is Miss Mabel, the 1959 VW Beetle Ragtop the shop is preparing for the Ultimate VW Build-Off. It's in Las Vegas, October 1-4, 2015. Even though Mabel started out with a relatively sound body, she looked every bit of her nearly sixty years. Her once dull, gray, creased, dinged, patina body has been straightened, repaired, and perfected. Painted and polished to within an inch of her life, she now sports a paint job so slick and juicy that it's hard not to drool on her.
Making Paint Shiny -er
In this little clip, Spook shows her bling black finish in the shade and the sunlight. That's to demonstrate why people will be spending an inordinate amount of time looking at her. She looks sinister and shiny in the shade - brilliantly black and blingy in the sunlight - all the same finish, of course.
That's the hallmark of Airkooled Kustoms custom VW restoration projects. There's more to see than what your eye picks up right away. Ninja-like, right? With some builds out there, the hope is that you'll like the car and keep walking before you see what's wrong with it. It's the opposite with AKK builds. The longer you look, the more you love it, the more detail you see.
Mabel's finish is so fine that fans are mistaking it for a mirror in many of her build pictures.
If you'd like to see more, check out the build progress here: http://airkooledkustoms.com/projects/whats-on-the-floor/1959-vw-beetle-ragtop/
And if you're planning to join us at the Ultimate VW Build-Off (http://www.ultimatevwbuildoff.com), be sure to bring your sunglasses. We'd hate for Miss Mabel's shine to make you squint!
Inspired? Searching for "VW restoration shops near me" now that you've caught the bug? Airkooled Kustoms hails from Hazel Green, Alabama. But that doesn't mean you've got to live in the southeast to become a client. In fact, most of our clients live "yonder" (a southern term we've come to understand as "not here"). Some of them have project cars they've been hauling around for decades. Others have nothing more than a dream and a willing checkbook. We can arrange for transport for you to get your vehicle from hither and yon (we're not 100% on that one, but think it probably means "wherever you are") to the shop.
Just give us a call at 256-828-2123 or click to contact us online. The sooner we start talking about your project, the sooner you'll drive it.
