Photography

All the photos you see here have been taken solely by me. I used a Fujifilm S7000 Digital SLR with resolution set to 12 million pixels between 2006 and 2013. From 2014 onwards I have been using a FujiFilm HS-50 Digital SLR with 14 Million Pixels for clearer and more dynamic images. I occassionally use a wide angle lens, which is excellant when in a confined area. As I am sure you would agree, the quality of the photo's are quite good. Due to size limits and loading times, some images have been reduced in size and quality.

Photography is a hobby of mine and one that I feel I am pretty confident at. I enjoy taking photos of my Beetle, as it charts the changes you make and how the car evolves through the years. I like my Beetle to have the classic look, it may be modern but it could certainly sit well amongst late 60's and early 70's Beetles, with only the Number Plate giving it away.

History

I have owned my Volkswagen Beetle since 2006. It had been in a private collection since new when purchased from Beetles UK in 1998, clocking up only 2,500 miles. It had only been dry driven, never in the rain.

Since I puchasd the bug, I have replaced all the chrome with good quality german products, fitted front fog lights and four stud four spoke BRM alloys. I have recently fitted CSP LED Rear Lights. One item I advise you to do to your beetle is waxoyle or black jack the inside/underside of the body and chassis, this will reduce the risk of rotting in key areas, and save you money in the long term.

Remember, any modifications you make to your Beetle should be passed onto your Insurance company so that you are covered in all eventuallities.
