Thumbs up. The car has come up very neat. Congrats on the prized possession. Is it a DX model or Std one? Keep posting. Please clarify about your different exhaust pipe. Is it a custom made entirely ? or only the tile pipe is custom made? And one more thing. Did you change the wind shield glasses or got it polished?

The car has come out well Beetle boy! Congrats, just a few point from my side:

>The roof lining is not perfectly installed,and the rubber surround is missing.

>I saw seatbelts in your pre resto pix, why were they removed after the resto?

> Please change the rear Badges to the original type. There is a single MARUTI SUXUKI badge right below the rear windshield, and a large 800 badge on the center piece, to the left side. There are also 2 silver strips, with a black border on the two creases between the tail lights!

> Sunvisors, do you have them? If not get them from the first gen Maruti Van(not omni)

Thank you JayD and Bablue.

@ JayD :Roof lining still bit of work is pending and the borders have not come proper will fix this weekend. Coming to roof rubber lining beading i dont have please help me not available in bangalore (New nor Old).

Seat belts were jamed looking out for seconds will have them soon. Didnt do stickering work still, will have that once when my number plates go on.

Need Suggestion: Shall I go for small IND number plates or shall I have the same Alluminium plates which are currenltly on my car i hope those are the orignal one made out of alluminium which are embosed.

Sunvisors I have original ones which were in the car, need to cover those with the matching roof color and fix them.

@Bablue this is a standard model as there is no AC and tinted classes but when i bought this car there was a watch hole in the dashboard and I sourced a local quartz make and fixed which you can in my pics.

Exhaust pipe is totall custom made(Sports Sound) and you should hear the sound to beleave it and pick up I am able to do wheeling however mileage has droped its giving me 18km per lt.

Reason for changing the exhaust pipe: Current one in car had so many holes, somke was confused where to come out from. Sourced very hard in the gujri little better than mine with welding job done was quoted Rs 1500 so planned to do custom made for as of now for Rs 2000 which i felt is better. Down the lane will source a good one and replace.

Need clarity : I have sourced orginal AC assemble in gujri (Removed from other car)in bangalore in running condition which he is quoting Rs 5000 is this a reasonable price and can i go ahead with the fitting, will this not have any other problems as it come as company fitting in my car.

Thanks,
Saleem

Then this seems a good deal. Keep aside abour 1.5K for fitment and gas filling. Did your car already have an AC setup? Else you will also have to get the solenoid helps open a diaphragm actuator to increase idle speed while the compressor is switched on. As well equip the carb to react to this diaphragm.

I dont think my vehicle had a ac before. Can you just brief about the solenoid so that i can be aware of this and take proper care while fitting. Will the person fitting the Ac will have the idea to increase the idle speed while the compressor is switched on or how is it?

Thanks,
Saleem

Dear beetle boy;
Compliments of the day!

Congratulations on the restoration job, I am curious about one thing that you mentioned in your very first post i.e. the start of this thread; you mentioned about replacing the front shock-absorber plates.
Did you find the replacement parts?
If yes, can you please provide me the details of the source?

Best regards
Arshjeet Singh.

Good restoration Beetle_boy, really loved the way your SS80 is restored. Wish I could meet you with your beauty during my next bangalore visit.

And here is my SS80 restoration,

Hi Saleem
Recently i changed the tyres.
Apollo 155/65/R12, its very good , costed Rs 10,500 including allignment & balancing. Handling is too good, & increase of 10 Mm from standard is not causing any difficulty in handling or any other problem.
I searched for good year but did not get as the std. size in most of the shops are 145/65/R12.

Can you please help me sourcing "Front Grill" (where maruti 800 logo is there , the streight line ones, i want to change my Honey comb model to the old one).
