ABOUT THE GERMAN JUNKIES

Zinc Plating Service

 

When restoring parts we sand blast everything in-house and use a trusted sub-contractor to zinc coat all the parts that we think would benefit from the treatment.

 

Zinc plating is a surface coating applied to metals to improve durability and provent corrosion. We can offer a gold or clear finish. Looks super smart too!

 

We mainly use this process for items such as lock mechanisms.

Powder Coating Service / Exchange

 

As we already sell lots of hard to find parts that have been powder coated, we also offer a powder coating service.

 

It is possible to send us your rusty and dirty old VW parts, and we can sand, glass or bead blast , acid etch prime and finally apply  the super durable powder coat final finish in the colour of your choice.

 

A whole range of colour finishes are available, including popular cracklecoat finish, but we usually use gloss black. If you want something powder coated in a particular colour - please ask to see our colour chart.

History of The German Junkies

 

Ever since I was 3 years old, in 1976 - 1977 my dad had owned Volkswagens. As can be seen, I am in the first right picture with our reasonably new Beetle at around that time.

 

My Dad loved cars, and Volkswagens especially, and many more Golfs, Sciroccos, and Passats followed over the years, as well as the MK 1 GP Beach Buggy, that he found in a barn and purchased as a fun car in the mid 1980's, and I am very proud to still own it today!

 

In that GP Beach Buggy, with my Dad, and some other family and friends, regularly, all camping in a very small tent, we attended as many VW shows as we possibly could from the mid 1980's onwards. We travelled in the buggy all over the UK, including the very first Bug Jams, Volksworld Shows etc. Also Old VW Actions, and Beetle Bash's at Avon Park Raceway and many more.

 

My Dad sadly died, but his GP Beach Buggy and the love of all things VW very much continued within us....

 

In loving memory of my Dad who was VW mad too !! 1947 - 1998

 

I bought my first copy of VW Motoring when I was about 14 years old, and dreamed regularly about Beetles and Splitscreen Vans. In my dream I wanted my first Splitscreen panel van to be lowered slightly with quite fat Golf PIRELLI P Slot wheels!!!! Tastes and styles were very different in those days!

 

All of my oldest and best friends from school and college days, when a TYP 2 Splitscreen could be bought for £250.00, instead of today's £15,000 plus, have also always been crazy about VW's too, and all of this history and interest between us really harnessed our life long passion.

 

More recently, over the last 15 years, Penny and I, and many other friends, have also ventured to as many European VW shows, meets and gatherings as we can including, Bad Camberg, Hessisch Oldendorf, European Bug-in, and Wolfsburg etc.

 

Since buying our RHD 1955 Oval Window Beetle, our love of the really old VW's grew stronger and with lots of hard work and a life time of dedication later, we are now the proud owners of an original low mileage 1949 TYP 1 Split Window Beetle, and an original 1954 TYP 2 Barndoor Panel Van.

 

We also still own and regularly use the 1955 Oval Window as well as my Dads old MK1 GP Beach Buggy, and also a very original 1959 NSU Quickly Motorcycle!
