Love the finished car. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail.

Let me share something I thought would be useful to you. Last time I visited Thailand, I saw a large number of modded VW bugs in immaculate condition in Pattaya. When I enquired with some people there about how they sourced spares, they all mentioned a place called Waruchak Market in Bangkok where spares and accessories are available for any car, any make.
This took me to Waruchak market the very next day and surprise, surprise. Headers, steering wheels, FFE, ICE, lights, Airfilters... thousands of them in the hundreds of stores. Paradise found.
Possibly, if you are looking for cheaper spares and custom equipment for the Bug, try this place out.
Just my 2 cents.

Hello Pavan , Thanks for those wonderful pictures of the Beetle. She looks absolutly stunning in that blue..! Kudos to you for your selection ..! We just loved the way it looked

Hello Pavan,
I am new to this thread but I have been following up on your wonderful restorations of the classic beetle cars. Kudos to you and your team for an excellent work done. Do post us on further updates on this thread. Me and my daugter are big fans of the beetle and would always like to own one.

Honoured by such a compliment sir.

I have not done ANY Modification to anything, We have used all Original / Retro-Fit parts.
