Garage near Brighton/Sussex Area

Discussion in 'VW Services' started by Ukjoncollins, May 17, 2021.

  1. Hello all,
    I've asked this question a million times over already... but anyone got any garage recommendations in Sussex? I've tried Ant at Kustom Revival already and a couple of the other more known folks, but just completely drawing a blank now as they all have 18 month waiting lists.

    I just need someone to replace a cylinder head on the engine and tune the carbs for me. I feel like I've literally tried every single garage in Sussex now. Any leads most welcomed...

    Many thanks,
    Jon

  5. Only one nearish that area I know is Pete nice - trades as air cooled technic. https://www.aircooledtechnic.co.uk/

    I bought a secondhand engine off him many years ago that was all good. . Think he used to do a mobile service but it was many years ago.

  7. Ask the local vdub club who they would recommend.

    Sussex VW Owners Club

    Not to be confused with SVWOC (Sheffield Volkswagen Owners Club) - one of the oldest VW clubs in the country.
