The standard VW chassis needs to be shortened by 390mm (or 15 3/8 inches) to accommodate the SWB Doon kit. Chassis shortening is a specialist job and requires a certain degree of knowledge on exactly how, where and what to cut and weld.
Volksmagic offer a complete chassis shortening service, using our specially designed chassis alignment jig. Price depends on the quality and condition of the donor chassis. and the amount of work required from simple chassis shortening to the provision of a full rolling chassis.
Volksmagic can also supply a simple adapter plate to allow fitment of the Doon kit to the chassis of numerous other SWB buggies (or any other VW based kits) which have a 14.5 to 16 inch chassis chop and are in need of re-bodying or repair.
