Steve Hook began welding bugs back in the early 80’s and has been through more Mig wire & gas bottles than he cares to remember.
Over this period of time he has built up a good knowledge of the in’s & out’s of Beetle construction. Anyone whose been involved in the repair or restoration of a Beetle will tell you that the aftermarket panels that are available can leave quite a lot to the imagination (and the angle grinder!!).
It’s to this end that he began producing his own panels to overcome this lack of quality/unavailability. Hooky’s Panel Shop was formed in 2000 as a part time business, with two main priorities- ‘Quality’ and ‘Fit’, saving the restorer time in fitting the panel and producing a better end result.
