Nutkin has emerged from his mid life crisis.


Aged 40 this year Nutkin has had a make over and is now ready to go out on holiday.



We decided to give Nutkin a face lift over the winter which we thought would be an easy paint job, but like anything with VWs it is always a bigger job!


We started by striping back the paint and found quite a rusty roof where from a previous life in South Africa wetsuits had been hung out to dry, leaving salt deposits on the roof... a large section of new roof needed to be welded in.


Three months later Nutkin emerged from the garage, bright and shiny with an appetite for exploring. So far he has been out to weddings, a company birthday party and the more normal experiences of tootling around Cornwall discovering the attractions of life in Cornwall.
