THE RESTORATION PROCESS
This is a "Mistersatz" German hatch strut used on our B4V-TDI Wagons.
This is the intake manifold on a B4-TDI 1.9 engine. Sometimes these get clogged with excess carbon. We boil them in a solvent then blow out the carbon deposits, polish the outside and re-install with new gaskets. A B4-TDI will always run better with a clean intake.
This is an oil dip-stick extension tube, new on all our B4-TDI restorations.
This is a B4-TDI turbo sensor called an N-75. All or B4-TDI get one of these sensors to help the turbo function correctlyThese come to us from VW of Germany. The label on the box is "Umschaltventil" which is German for Change-Over Valve.
These are the new 3-piece clips used to attach the side moldings on our B4-TDI restorations.
Nice Cars Paintwork on B4V's
High quality PPG base/coat, clear/coat paint, usually 8 - 10 coats of base, last coat color-sanded prior to a gallon of clearcoat.
Parts removed prior to paintwork; door handles, door moldings, door window frames, headlights, exterior mirrors, taillights, antenna, hood-mounted windshield squirters, windshield wiper arms, grill, both bumpers, roof rack.
This is Audi/Mercedes quality paint not seen on normal Volkswagens. Wherever you look on a B4-TDI you will find something way better than a regular Volkswagen and the paint is no exception.
