Sergio's Blue and White Beetle teardrop camper took about four years to get to where it is now but there is still scope for more work to be done on this project. The front-end was chopped off to form the teardrop shape, and a few inches were removed from the top. The front of the camper was made from the fenders of another Beetle.
