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!

Hello, I'm Eric. I started 1967beetle.com. I also own Lane Russell, a leading supplier of VW parts for your classic Volkswagen restoration. I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Wow, Chris does great work. Is this ’67 going to be for sale? If so, I’m interested!

    2. 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

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