Working with VWs is a passion of mine borderline obsession. It all started with Oliver, a bay window I bought 10 years ago. And since, I've owned a variety of Vanagons including my beast love, Syncro. (Currently awaiting a hightop)  I got the opportunity to work along side a master mechanic for some years in Idaho, doing everything from tune ups and oil changes to rebuilding motors. I have learned many skills needed to be patient and get the job done right. Along the way I met Jonah, his skills in painting, restoring and polishing, along with his good vibes and humor, compliment my own and we became a team and now service a small local fleet. 

Located on a 3 acre permaculture orchard we've started what we call the "VeeDub Day Spa", specializing in the revitalization of the beloved Vanagon.  Whether it be electrical, mechanical, restorative or detailing we take on a multitude of tasks giving these home on wheels all that they deserve. 

We are very excited to offer hightop installations in the Bay Area
