Everything you need to know to build a VW-based buggy


There has been a huge resurgence of interest in Dune Buggies (Beach Buggies), kit cars based on the chassis and running gear of fatally corroded VW Beetles. Here is the complete step by step practical guide to the equipment and building techniques needed to build a Buggy, as well as sound guidance on the choice of donor car and new components. With this manual in your workshop, you can build any VW-based Dune Buggy avoiding all the common pitfalls and money sapping mistakes, and ending up with a superb, roadworthy multi-purpose vehicle.

About the author

Paul Shakespeare initially trained as an aircraft technician with The British Aircraft Corporation. This was followed with a job at a company who specialised in preparing Chrysler cars and engines for rally, race, and speed hill climbs. He then retrained in illustration, working for publishers and popular magazines. This led to successful study for a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art, London, England. Since the mid eighties, Paul has taught full and part time in Illustration and Graphic Design in the UK, with guest lectureships in the USA and Sweden. He still manages to engage in his love and fascination of the motorcar.
