Volkswagen's second-generation Transporter, made between 1967 and 1979, is a hugely popular vehicle. With even the rustiest examples fetching solid money, and imports from drier climes continuing to appear on British roads, the case for restoring a 'Bay window' Transporter is increasingly attractive. The Haynes Bay Transporter Restoration Manual
follows the complete step-by-step restoration of two vans: a 1971 Panel van and a 1979 Devon camper. The restorer (and author) covers the entire restoration process, from how to buy a suitable van to planning, structural repairs, bodywork, mechanical overhaul, interior refurbishment through to final painting and refitting. Using the Haynes' trusted practical approach and supported by hundreds of color photographs, and helpful diagrams where necessary, this is the only guide to restoring (or part restoring) a Bay you'll ever need.
