Found a set of useful items to be placed in the car if being stored for long or for a week or so. Keeps it fresh and also removes the excess Moisture from the car. A must for all enthusiasts who pack up the car especially for the monsoons. I found two makes one was Absorbia and the other Dampfree . Dampfree I have been using for years but it was imported now available in India. Absorbia has been in india for two years or so but never got an opportunity to use it till now. Dampfree has small 4 " squares which are good to keep taped up behind the dash and also in the VW Boot at the wiringl cover at the back to keep it all dry and extra moisture being trapped to be sucked out.

Cheers

this product seems to be a good one as i find small patches of some growth especially on the dash board and steering wheels of my merc's may be the material may be ideal for fungal growth ,so i repeatedly lay the car in sun after a couple of weeks to make her feel fresh and moisture free,i will try this for sure,must be available at major accessory stores?

Post a 25 km run and final mechanical alterations removed of the front disc and back to drums as thats what made the car go all over the place. . The clutch issues resolved due to some great help from everyone on the forum and special thanks to the Bangalore Beetle Boys - Pavan and The Bullet boy ( Jalopy Shop).

Mechanical issues first by Mahesh and then resolved and sorted by Carrera Motors aka Anoop Thakoor

My Team for their patience in getting this car sorted - A decade and finally some results.

Photo shoot tomorrow !!!! Snaps will be uploaded shortly


Cheers and Thank you very very much

Congratulations once again

Get your bumpers chromed, put those guards on them first and later the photoshoot.

Since your car is Mechanically fine, its time now to finish it Cosmetically.

Hats off to your patience....

And.. Where's the TREAT, i will pick you next week.

Looks good and seems to be working

Ani,

Your beetle is looking awesome. The blue color is looking just period and lends a character to the bug. The overall turnout and the detailing has come out real good.

I would say that if you tidy up the wires and pipes in the engine compartment, it will improves the looks a whole lot. I have few pics off internet. I have always thought of doing this on my car, lets see if it happens or not.

Dear Aniruddji,
The engine can do with some detailing.You have to taken a decision as to whether you want keep it stock or give it a custom look.If you want to give it the custom look there are lot billet aluminium accessories available from EMPI and other makes.Good luck with everything you do to make her pretty .Enjoy your ride .
Cheers !!
