1965 VW Bug

When Rivero (interior shop) purchased their Bug, they always intended to “showcase” some interior work and use the car to promote their work. They hired us to help design and build the car to suit their needs. The plan was to paint the car in a very neutral exterior color in order to let the interior pop. We chose a 60’s Porsche white single stage to keep with the vibe of an older style paint job. New chrome and stainless along with painted wheels and white wall tires help the exterior not look too bland. Subtle touches of color such as the painted wheels and died blue running board rubbers help tie in with the interior. We chose to make the interior rich in blue. Using high quality vinyl and seat patterns that exceed what the factory did, as well as using German square weave carpet in a not so common blue color. Shifter, e-brake handle, steering column and wheel were all painted to match. Traditional door panels were died to match and a clean white headliner finish up the interior, not to mention the carpeted hood space with also matching blue painted gas tank and full spare tire. The stance of the car is only 2″ lower than stock, simply to eliminate some tire to fender gap and the rear wheels are spaced out 1″ to better fill in the rear quarters. All in all the car is very subtle outside but very rich inside, doing exactly what it was built for, showcasing the interior work that Rivero Interior does.
