Though the product is sold at a good price too, so the useage of local product "PITCH" is negated.

In the same movie, they have shown first a white and then red coloured Fiat Elegent (centerlight model) most of the time behind the Mrec.

Looks good Pavan. Why no number plate up front? Square shaped plate mounted off-center would look much nicer than painting on bumper.

That is not similar colour it is an Orange and white coloured Microbus and belongs to a prominent Film Producer who lives in Bombay. He is a huge VeeDub fan and also has couple of other beetles too (including a 1974 Convertible).

The 115 is an 1968 White originally a Mysore registered Mercedes owned by a Car dealer in Mumbai who regularly supplies vehicles in Bollywood at insane prices. The same Merc can also be seen in "Om Shanti Om" for few seconds - Blink and you miss types is what I meant.

Searching for a number plate of the same size as in rear. will do it ASAP.

Very surprisingly, i found few small places with rusts yesterday and i am not very happy with the whole thing. Gave an earfull to my painter and made him re-do the entire panel once again, though this is not the final finish, he has sprayed WD-40 and rust preventer on the areas, put the oil putty, which will remain there for a weeks time. Later which we will sand them down again and re-paint it.

Dont you think the right way would be to seperate the door skin from the frame , repair them seperately, put them back together , put sealant in the joints and THEN paint it. I think thats the only way the rust will stop

That process has to be adhered to if the rust pores are deep, here in my case, its just the surface rust spots at the joints, caused due to encapsulation of rain water within the door rubber strips.

I have used oil putty at the joints presently, will observe it for couple of days and attend to it. In case i need to use joint sealer, will gladly do it. Thanks for your concern and suggestion, i truly value it.

And...........Just guess what is this.....................?

IT IS A CARBURETOR.

Solex was a French manufacturer of carburetors and the powered bicycle VéloSoleX.
Solex carburetors were until the mid 1980s used on many European cars including Volkswagen, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Audi, Ford, BMW, Citroen, Opel, Simca, Saab, Renault, Peugeot, Lancia, Lada, Mercedes Benz, Volvo and Porsche.

Solex carburetors have been made under licence by a number companies including the Mikuni company of Japan who supplied them to auto makers including Toyota, Mitsubishi and Suzuki as well as to various Japanese motorcycle makers. Mikuni originally entered into a licensed manufacturing agreement with Solex in 1960 and further developed many of Solex's original designs.

Yes True, its a twin carb set-up for aircooled VW Dual port engines.

And this set-up increases the performance of the VW engine by a large extent

Presently my BUS is flying, with this, i will be competing with Kingfisher Airlines ( Sorry for being over-enthu)

Got hold of these NOS parts just recently, will be trying it on the Bus very soon.
