Re: 1963 RHD Samba - Currently undergoing resto

Working away on all the bolt on items!

Front beam is rotten so a replacement is being fitted and has been fully blasted before we powder coat it, deluxe trim has minor damage on most sections so we have been gently tig welding these areas so everything can be sanded down then polished up.
