Retro Custom offer a wide range of mechanical services for your VW. Whether you need a simple wheel change or a full custom built engine, you have come to the right place. 

Our mechanical services cover all air-cooled Volkswagens up to 1979 and also include the later Brazilian Bays. We do not presently cater for T25's or water cooled VW's in an effort to reduce customer waiting times. 

We have a comprehensive range of diagnostic equipment and specialist air-cooled VW tools to get to the bottom of any mechanical issues you might have. We also have diagnostic equipment to troubleshoot air-cooled Brazilian bay, Type 1 and Type 4 fuel injection systems.

The comprehensive range of mechanical services offered include:

  • Lowering
  • Narrowed beams
  • Detailing
  • Straight axle conversions
  • Disc brake conversions
  • Engine upgrades
  • Suspension upgrades
  • Alternator conversions
  • Twin carburettor conversions

We have a large contacts base where we can source OE and New Old Stock genuine VW replacement parts to keep your vehicle's mechanics in as close to original condition as possible.

When it comes to using aftermarket replacement parts, due to the minefield of poor quality parts available, you can rest assured that our extensive experience of testing many of the available parts out there means that you will always get the best parts fitted to your vehicle and avoid buying twice.

We also hold a large stock of both genuine VW and aftermarket parts including hard to find early parts. If we don't have it, we have the contacts to source it for you.

If you are looking for a high quality finish for your engine and mechanical components, we offer a detailing service where we can bring your engine up to show standard and also build up your chassis to a very high standard.
