Tom and Alie sent their beloved Westy here all the way from Maryland. Whenever anybody contacts us from the east coast with a Westy they want us to restore, I get a little nervious. What east-coasters call "non-rusty," us west-coasters typically call a rust bucket. What we call "rust free," they call a "museum piece!" I have heard it a hundred times: "Always garaged, never used in the winter, yada, yada, yada."

Needless to say, I was very relieved when this Westy showed up and it was REALLY all those things. This vehicle is NICE. Not a SPOT of rust. The paint is not perfect, but it IS original. So, we decided to save as much of it as possible.

Here is a list of all we did:

- Nose, luggage rack, top repainted (rest of paint is original)
- Black texture treatment around bottom, GoWesty style
- New hemp/cotton 3-window pop-top tent-tie dyed
- New hemp/cotton curtains-also tie dyed-to match!

- Recaro front seats in black Recaro Nardo/Artista fabric
- Door panels recovered in combination of Recaro fabrics to match
- Super comfy downstairs mattress upholstered in Recaro fabric to match
- Power door locks and windows added to front doors
- Nice speakers installed-already had a decent CD player
- Almost $500 worth of AC work done-but don't get too excited...It is still a Westy, after all!

- Bilstein shocks all around
- Front suspension and steering rebuilt as needed
- New Michelin HydroEdge tires on OEM South African 15 inch "Rhein: style alloy wheels
