“If you are a perfectionist – and are serious about having a top quality, professional job done – then Volker’s your guy. He rejuvenated my ’87 VW Syncro camper, performing major surgery on rampant rust that probably would have defeated lesser body men. With any 25 year old vehicle, surprises will always surface.
Crome not only kept me constantly informed of any unexpected situation, but he always had a solution as well. Owning a rather unusual classic vehicle, it was also reassuring that I could leave it in the hands of someone with a depth of experience with my particular model, as well as being a fellow Vanagon owner / devotee. I’ve lost count of the number of complements I’ve received for my van since the work was completed. I couldn’t be more pleased!”

"I had the pleasure of working with Crome to finish the restoration of my 1974 Volkswagen Westfalia camper. He did a virtually complete body restoration, removing almost all interior and exterior parts, fixing any flaws, and adding his own improvements. He was professional, meticulous, found creative solutions to unexpected problems, and most importantly, it was quite clear to me through the whole process that he genuinely cared about both his customers as individuals, and the very high quality of his work. He doesn't cut corners, and goes the extra mile to ensure the job is done properly. The end product was better than factory, and I'm looking forward to having him work his magic on another van project in the near future. Crome is a rare breed - an artist, craftsman, and gentleman. Thanks!!"

"I have known Volker for more than a decade now and he has worked on many of the cars I’ve driven. I have seen a lot of body work done elsewhere but none compare to the quality that Volker delivers. I always know he doesn’t do short cuts and the pricing is fair. In fact, I don’t think Volker charges enough! He is a role model in my mind for how a businesses should run and his company is an absolute pleasure to be in. I can’t say enough great things about the passion he brings to his field of work and the upfront honesty in his communication. I am thankful to have such a shop that I can refer people to. Cheers!"
