Just carried out a interesting calliper refurb on Bretts 147 GTA so thought we would share it on here. He wanted an interesting colour and said to me that his preferred choice was Lamborghini Orange or something similar. I did a little research and discussed options with my painter and we came...
Ok it's not a normal Beetle but to add salt to the wounds it is built from parts from an old electric milk float by two brothers in Berkshire. 0-60 in 1.6 seconds :wow: and now picking up loads of awards :thumbs: :cool:
