Aircooled VW Specialist I have owned aircooled VWs since 1987 and, as an enthusiast as well as a professional, I can treat your vehicle with the care it deserves. Whether it's general servicing or more intensive work Mango Restorations can offer the following services

Restoration.  From sympathetic work on original paint vehicles, to full ‘body off’ resto's, up to the paint stage.

MOTs and Servicing. I can arrange your vehicles MOT and carry out any necessary remedial work.

Engine Upgrades. If you are looking for more power than the stock engine gives, I have built numerous reliable, higher output engines from 1600cc to 2000cc+. I can also tune and balance carbs or set the engine up to get your current engine running at it's peak.

Imports. If you are looking to buy a solid base vehicle, I have sources in America and more locally.



More work on Robs Bus.

The mill is set up for opening cases for larger barrels and pistons now. .1776cc for this engine.

Previous accident damage had been fixed using an inch of filler! Panel beating it back into shape and replacing the rusted and mangled lower arch section with a repair panel results in a higher quality repair.

More work on Robs split bus, chipping away at it.

Merry Christmas from Mango Restorations to all customers and friends 🍬🍹🎁🎅

Another weldathon, ready to go back home 😀

This engine is in for a a capacity increase from 1600cc to 1776cc.

It has been a while since I have posted an update as my phone has lost all my photos. Here are a few photos of current work that is going on.

It has been a busy few months with lots of work on going , here are a few visitors.
