My 1960 Gulf Blue Beetle Restoration Complete

I thought i would get some pictures up of my 1960 Gulf blue Beetle now its just about finally finished. Lots of hours and hard work gone into this but have really enjoyed doing it.

He is a matching numbers car still on the original 40hp engine and has had only 4 owners from new (2 from the same family) when i got him they had owned him since 1970 and he was then passed down to her son some 25 years later. He has covered just 56000 miles from new.

Me and my wife named him 'Angus' as he came from Scotland and up until he was purchased by me he had never left there!

Wow looks fantastic. Nice to see classics brought back to their former glory instead of 3 day old cars that have been detailed and look new anyway.

Quite simply outstanding finish on that how did you get the engine block and the Aluminium looking so good?
so what's it worth know and how easy was it to get all that glorious trim and fantastic finish on paint?
