We are a small family run business specialising in classic VW restoration, repairs or modification in our fully equipped workshop. We know that your van is an important part of the family and we want you to feel as if you are part of the restoration. We stay in close contact keeping you posted on updates and progress encouraging site visits by appointment. This is a good way to explain what has been done and what is left to do and explain where your money has been spent.
We have many years’ experience in classic restoration. As we specialise in vans and work with them day in and out we have come across vans that require a major restoration where the chassis is almost non-existent requiring major fabrication to something not quite as drastic and getting a van through MOT.
All work is photographed at various stages as a history of your restoration.
We strongly believe in doing a job right the first time, we take pride in what we do and we love seeing the vans through the different stages whether it’s stock or custom we can cater for all your needs.
We believe in treating customers the way we would expect to be treated ourselves.
Media blasting section
We have an in house fully enclosed blast facility where the vans are media blasted to remove the majority of paint and rust. All the running gear is removed and the vans are placed onto a roll frame so all of the underside can be cleaned thoroughly… If there is any corrosion then the blast room will uncover it. Not all of the vans have this type of media blasting as it can distort the large panels like the roof and centres of the doors and side panels. There are different types of media can be used depending on the job required.

TSR started in the late 90’s with an idea of putting a more reliable engine into a VW as customers were getting fed up with the cost and unreliability of air cooled engines. We thought we would start the project with the highest form of motor racing i.e. drag racing and this is how TSR was born.
We then developed a VW Beetle for the drag track, this car is known as “No Remorse”. It was the first car to be entered and to start the A/E VW drag racing class, this class has now got some of the fastest VW’s in Europe.
After project building for drag racing the question was asked: ‘Can this conversion be used on the road?’ After developing an efficient cooling system for the Subaru engine the answer was ‘Yes’.
We can do the conversion on all the VW’s whether you are looking for a motorway cruiser or a turbo-charged monster.
In recent years we have developed a gearbox suitable for the power and rev range of all the Subaru engines.

Our paint and body work
We have worked on some beautiful old, new and simply well-loved vehicles in our long history. Some were little welding repairs whilst others were full restorations.
“Finding someone I trusted to work on my car was very important… So when hearing though the Vw community that bear body works was restoring a gulf blue 61 beetle I had to see as it was the same year and colour… After watching the work bearbodyworks done And getting to know Jim, I knew he was the man I wanted to bring my car back to life…. And the results of my pride and joy….. Better than I ever expected… Top work, top paint, top man… Highly recommended” (Paul Charlesworth)

“Really pleased with the colour coding bear bodyworks carried out on my VW T5, front and rear bumpers, including wing mirror covers.
Bumpers were textured, now they are smooth as…
Were able to fit me in one week after making contact, Cheers!! “(Paul Holt)

As with a lot of other firms I could say how passionate I am about VW’s, however this would be a slight understatement. Apart from my growing family, I live and breath VW’s. I started repairing my own VW before I could even drive, I prepared my 1982 mk1 Golf in anticipation of passing my test and I have not looked back since.
I have now been given the opportunity to turn what I love doing into a full time occupation.
I can guarantee my heart and soul will go into repairing or putting your cherished VW back on the road. My rates are comparable to other local businesses and my work is of a high standard. I have a good eye for detail and I’m dedicated to the job in hand.
I will undertake anything from quick repair jobs right through to full restorations. I also provide vehicle servicing and pre-MOT checks.
For any work you need please either call me or contact me at email@example.com and we can talk about your needs. In some instances it may be necessary for me to come and see you and your vehicle, if the work needed is not straight forward or if the vehicle is currently off the road.
