Congrats on your bus, pavan!!

I bet she;s a real head-turner now! Next time I'm in Bangalore, I can hop on for a ride in and we can do a rendition of a 70s action movie scene; I would anyways be in the right garb to match it!

Congratulations Pavan on completion of the project.

After seeing your thread I am spotting these buses quite often in movies of 70s,
This Sunday I watched 'Mukaddar ka Sikandar' on TV and saw the VW micobus in red / white parked in background in just one scene. .

Seems they were quite popular in India in 70s

Do you have any information on history of these microbuses were they individual imports or was there any VW dealership in India selling these microbuses ?

Thank you buddy, lots to be done before its complete

Drove the Bus around 70 kms extensively today Neat and tidy.

There's a small problem, the carb secondary butterfly opens much earlier than it should, but not a major trouble with the running.

Everyday morning i make it a point to drive my kid to school and back, almost 10 kms daily and last 10 days the Bus has run around 250-300 kms without a hiccup(touch wood he he...)

By friday the interior curtains will arrive, looking forward to see how it looks with them.

Holiday at office today coz YSR.

Had lot of time to finish some work on the Bus, tinker came home early to start work Since my kid also had a holiday, she starts with some screw-drivers and spanner lol..... Every time she needs to contribute to any work happening on the bus, cant stop her, he he.....

All curtains ON and happy to say, the bus now gives a warm and cozy feeling sitting inside

Each and every work or add-ons being done are just changing the way the Bus looks. Even the customary LEFT HAND DRIVE sticker makes a lot of difference.

Next bit of work is to get the Twin chrome rods for the side and rear glasses, work already in progress, maybe i'll have them installed by end of next week.

Some pics.....

Pavan, I would like to work for your company . Your bus is looking uber cool .

BTW does your vehicle emits some black smoke as seen on the rear bumpers. And also were u able to get more info on the bus I posted in the Volkswagen in India Thread.

All banks on leave today buddy. Benefits of working in a Banking sector.

Thanks for your compliment, will spruce up this one some more slowly and steadily. Wish money grew on trees.... he he.

The Bus does not emit black smoke, too little though

The absence of tail-pipe is creating that mess, ordered for a pair of them, will rectify the black spots on the Bumper once installed. : )

I checked out on that VW Caravelle-Diesel, nice one but tooooooo pricey @ 5 lacs, with a cracked windscreen.
