Oepsie Daisy, you are beautifully restored with love and care, by lovely folks. Oepsie, i wish you many trips, with joyous passengers. May every one who is fortunate enough to relax on your seats, look through your windows, forever change their views, and see this life as beautiful and filled with oppurtunity. Oh, and Oepsie old friend, I will drop some sharp nails for you to keep hidden and only to be used on greedy, bad people who have no empathy for those less fortunate folks. Wish you many happy fun filled km’s. 🚎

Nothing like a quick “coffee” date to take the Old Lady out!!

She’s always so keen to show off! 🌼

The feeling was like… sitting at a street cafe in Paris, yet, it was only a local “lekker” spot!

Make sure you guys support this quaint place! @illy Bloubergstrand

Phase 3 - Final stage of Oepsie 🌼’s “Makeover”

Last but not least, and definitely the most important...
The mechanics of this old lady!!
Keeping her as is might have been a challenge in the foreseeable future...so a slight upgrade as far as the motor was concerned was definitely on the cards!

We were introduced to Aubrey from Beetle Man and boy oh boy how “lucky” can you get...what a gentleman, his knowledge and passion for air cooled vehicles is just second to none!

So the ‘BIG’ task on hand... upgrading Oepsie 🌼’s motor from a 1200 to a standard twin port
1600 cc refurbished motor...just to get up those hills a little easier... you know what we mean 😉

New refurbished .....was the order of the day...new refurbished gear box compatible with the new motor, new bearings, exhaust system, electronic ignition and a good thorough service of all the mechanics took place!
Sjoe...Aubrey from the Beetle Man was truly a blessing in the whole “makeover” process.
Not only was he exceptionally thorough but on time and within the budget all the way!!!

Now, for the something very special... to get the “oh so sexy” iconic VW Splitty look 👀 ...the Deluxe trim was fitted! 👌
A very intricate job, requiring loads of patience... thanks Aubrey! Also on the list was an anti fire 🔥 system just for peace of mind...

Next, the roof rack... in short...WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!! 😔
Made in Durban, NOT up to scratch, some own modifications had to be done... and voila!!!

WE ARE DONE!!👌👏

Please enjoy... again... some pics of our “old ladies” make over journey!!

Ps. Watch this space as the ADVENTURES of Oepsie Daisy 🌼as this is only the BEGINNING!!

20/04/2020

Phase 2...in Oepsie 🌼’s “Makeover”

The prep work had now begun!

The first step was to get Oepsie 🌼 ready for the spray booth... and probably the toughest choice was ...the colour 🤷🏻

After many hours of research (original colors of the 60’s busses) paint swatches, spending hours looking at Splitty pics world wide, we finally decided on a colour...mouse grey/pearl white.
Super stoked!! 🙌

Now for the prep work...
Sandblasting was NOT an option as it could lead to body distortion, so for months, hand sanding took place. This ensured our precious old lady stayed in tact. That was followed by primers getting her ready for the final colour choice.

Finally, after 6 months, she came out of the spray booth, looking amazing.
What a great job by Engine Techniques 👏

Next up, assembling!
With loads of love and care, refitting old and new parts.
Lights, glass, rubbers, locks, nuts and bolts etc, basically everything that needed to be refitted to get her back on the road aka building the bus again! 😱

At this stage we’ve also decided to refit the old motor just to get her up and running and ready for phase 3 of the journey.

All while this was happening the reupholstery of the seats was taking place and new panels were been made and covered, new parts ordered and some been refurbished.
Sjoe, it was busy and crazy exciting!!
Thanks to Jacques from Aircooled Spares PE for always finding the parts we needed and getting them couriered to Cape Town as quickly as possible.

The petrol tank was totally refurbished to prevent further rusting and even the original speedometer was sent away for refurbishment.
New white wall tyres were on the way from PE.

The iconic VW badge is the original badge that we had rechromed.

Now for the real turn on... what is a real vintage VW bus without safari windows...🤷🏻
These are the front windows that actually open up! You have it open whilst driving to get fresh air and of course it really looks so cool!!
That’s was ordered and awaited delivery...super exciting 🌼

Enjoy the pics of phase 2 of the “make over”, Oepsie’s refurb!!

17/04/2020

We had so much fun and enjoyed “Oepsie Daisy” in her original state for roughly 2 years.
The time came and the “HUGE” exciting journey began...

🌼Oepsie Daisy’s 🌼 make over!!

Many decisions had to be made but the biggest was...
Who was going to be entrusted with the massive task ????

Well, we finally decided to use Engine Techniques in Brackenfell for the body work, not only was the owner the previous ‘owner’ of the bus but Wessel also shared the same passion and love for this old lady❣️

The bodywork took 12 months, this included stripping, cutting and welding of new panels and body parts.....

Enjoy some pics with us as we share “Phase 1” of the “make over journey” with you!!

Welcome to “The Adventures of Oepsie Daisy 🌼”.

The story started in 1963/ 1964 when this VW Splitty was most likely manufactured in Germany and shipped to SA in kit form and then assembled in Uitenhage, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

We have missed out on the many adventures that this iconic Splitty would have had in the last 55 years but we endeavor to bring you all the exciting adventures of Oepsie Daisy 🌼in years to come.

We purchased her in 2016 , she still had the original paint and 1200 cc engine from 1964!!
Albeit...bumpy, rusty, petrol ⛽️ smelly and very noisy but she was still going strong.

🌼Wow 🌼...what a find !!!!

The adventure had begun ...........
