Beautiful Restoration i must say. Another of the great works of Arush bhai.

Can you give us the estimates, how much did it cost and stuff like that? It would be really interesting.

Arush, details awaited. I might just go in for a second hand 800 and get it back to life.

The engine which had done by 5,80,000 odd kms was absolutely useless and we could very well just forget about the AC. The interiors due to abuse from the rain had become sticky and had a pungent odour. So one fine day when my dad's eye fell on the degrading state of the car and wondered what to do with it, I suggested selling it of , however, what we'd get for the car was... well zilch! Besides, it was my dads first car ever so apart from the emotional attachment the only thing that made us work on it was the number plate.. DED2. So we went to my friend Arush, Autopsyche. Who, if you ask has a 4 page list of parts that went into bringing this car back to life. Im sure, he can throw more light into the mechanical work that went into the car. Well enough blabbering, here's my 800 brought back from the dead.

Awesome work. I can image how you feel after restoring the car . 5.5Lac kms is a great deal... even with overhauls.
