Off to Paint — L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle Update

Baby’s getting new shoes! Actually, just paint. This is a follow-up to Chris Vallone’s L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle getting ready for paint article. For those who have never had a VW painted, it takes more than masking tape and a booth to get the job done right. Take a look at the fantastic photos below of this ’67 getting back to showroom status.

Perfect!

The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

Eric Shoemaker

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

Hello, Tine...I suggest that you find a consultant at an automotive paint supplier or someone at a paint shop who will be willing to talk. Sit down and talk about your project. There are many options today. But, you must match primers and paints--you can't paint using just any combination. First you will need to decide whether you will be using single-stage paint or base-coat clear coat. It is of great importance to do your homework before deciding upon a brand of paint. It will also be important if you are beginning from bare metal. Let us know what you discover! jay

Thanks, Jay. Also, I'd give this info a read over for general color schemes, etc.
