IMO This is by far the quickest & best (in terms of cosmetic) restoration project of yours Pavan ji, mirrors have been put to shame, such is the paint job on this car. Even the engine bay looks concours standard, spic & span.
I am eagerly waiting for some final pics, please post them soon.

Simply mindblowing!

The roar of that engine, the shade of the car - unmatched. What a pleasure to view and hear!

Can only imagine the feeling one must get in the driver's seat!

Fantastic job!!!

I was expecting few proper photographs of the car in full finished form.
For some reason, you didn't oblige.

Sir,

The Delivery day was Today, lot of unforseen last minute niggles, But, by end of the day all troubles rectified, the car drove well without any issues and reached the owners house blassting all the way from my house -via Indian Express - M G road - Domlur- Koramangala Hence, could only take few pics, and this is all we could manage.

Excellent!!! What happened to those center hub caps? They're missing or you'll put them after balance and alignment?

Sir, we are yet to get the wheel caps for the alloys, should come very soon.

Right now, since the restoration is Done, mechanically the car runs like a GEM, we are concentrating in taking it One more level UP.

The Super Fine details will be attended to in the cars present home

That is one breath-taking Beetle, Sir.

The workmanship and attention to detail can make you think that this was commissioned by the boffins at Wolfsburg. Gute Arbeit!

O MY GOD! Is this real? My jaw dropped straight on the table. Amazing, I wish I could see the car in real. The pictures are real treat to eyes. Man this is some restoration you have done. It really looks out of the showroom. I would like to ask were in Bangalore is your garage. Congratulations once more !

This car restoration has come up in an excellent way. Congrats on the successful mission. Please also mention on what parts/engine needed manual modifications while fitting them. We had faced some issues on changing Gypsy petrol engine to Toyota Turbo diesel. This was quite long ago when engine conversion was allowed.

@Pavan Kadam: I must say you have done a good job. I have a car up for restoration (I had done it myself a while ago, but never got down to running it regularly.) Please PM me your contact details if you are keen on taking up some more work.

Pavan Sir, simply mind blowing! Just one word comes to my mind Delicious

Very elaborate and detailed work, workmanship is excellent, the passion is draped around the Bug and polished with love, you have a great team, kudos to all!

Cheers!
