Thanks for the pic. But why was the car rebodied? Was it to change the configuration or was the body beyond restoration?

it does happen shreeram the owners do get tired and think too much time has been spent on the car and nothing is happening so they give up. sometimes they do not like to spend at one time and think they can restore it slowly over a period of time. doing this just ruins the car further. u end up redoing things you already have done

i agree uncle the garage is way too neat. they do have to follow international standards as they are VW dealers and it is their workshop.
i am working on it wanted to do it for ages, we have shifted to andheri now and have thought of doing it, unfortunately lack of space and no external funding causes a problem.
