    people who keep mehru are not with hi end sound systems coz to open a mehru is really easy.
    my plans are to change its steering and may be its dash, then i will go for its anti-theft locking system and the big expense in my mind is about its alloy rims.
    After that if i were with some money i will try to get a good sound system for it. thanks for advice buddy. i am sure when it will be ready it will shine like new penny inshallah

    tomorrow i will be there for the whole day inshallah and work out with good speed. usually workshops are having more cars than staff, so they work one by one on each dividing time for each client per day, dats why speed is slow.
    i will sit on their heads tomorrow

    Beeberg, this car's going to turn out perfectly fine if you keep it as original as possible. Dont add any new skirts or shirts or socks - it'll make your car look like a stupid toy. Keep it nice and clean, maybe get some nice looking wheels. But in the end, keep a basic colour , some regular lights, a simple and elegant wheel.

    Dont make this humble thing into a kids toy. Dont listen to uruleworld when se says add a skirt or dvd player.

    Shazi made a good point - when you're restorating the car, give it some better build quality. Add foam...make the cabin silent...stuff that will make you enjoy being in it.

    Just promise pakwheels we wont see your car in "Rice spotted" soon

    @shazi_00

    thanks brother, i think i wont be changing the dash board coz it may creat a bit mess and secondly i am planning to keep it max for a year no long term plans, yes about steering i am definitely in search of a good one. hopefully sooner i will visit market to get some good if didnt find new one then i will get some sports steering for some time, then while selling it i will get its original one back into it.
    about suspension meanwhile i am not having any problem with its suspension everything is perfectly fine with it. even on dumpy roads of lahore it goes like " gaddi jaandi e chalaangaan maardi" but as the suspension is really cheap i will definitely change the whole setup, so nice of u sir ji thanks a million for quoting prices and this advice.

    I have changed its head prior to its body work so i dont have any mechanical issue with it. the brake lights i talked about it was red colored rear lights which u usually call brake lights.

    yes bro, my next visit will be for purchasing the new locks and window channels inshallah. i will try this car to keep it as simple as possible. i wont be adding any stupid sticker or anything like this for sure.
    I have plans to add sound system in it and ofcourse a security system too. wont add LCD it gives strange look in it.

    thanks a million for suggestions brother.

    Add foam...make the cabin silent...stuff that will make you enjoy being in it.

    excellent suggestion boss u really read my mind out. infact my first priority is originality and simplicity second ones goes like if u want some add ons go for it.
    usually cabins noise are coming from bad rusted floored cars or diesel engines or some loose things in dash. will try to squeeze everything close and tight at its right place. with all your suggestions and prayers i will be able to make this car just like new in few days inshallah. as soon as denter will finish his work i will get painter to start his work on it. denter guys are really working hard on it I have seen it with my eyes.
    u will definitely inshallah say that this car looks new now.

    @ahsanFX

    when u saw the car it was with new door sheets and denter said the fender has been repaired so many times that it has lost its strength i will make it straight and fix it but with slight touch it will bend like a big accident. so had to get new fender.
    jaisay tu apna jigar hai wo bhi apna jani hai kerna parta hai yar. car is fully under me and i am getting its work done.
    visit me some time

    @mitthu

    thanks for writing me in this details brother, but i feel you are really an innocent guy the things which u got for car decoration are at the asking price, i feel u dont negotiate much.
    i got silencer tip for 50 for diesel one which is bigger than usual.
    i got rexene for 200 only for bonnet and many more things with negotiations, i got my car's roof washed with chemicals for only 50rs but he was asking 200. so better to say nahin yar nahin kerwana, wo khud hi neechay aa jata hai

    CNG is mein lagi hui hai boss.
    I have already got its head and rear lights including indicator lights
    bought wipers, sun shades and front grill of new design.

    i got the whole accessories without handbrake box for 250 and that box was something around 500~600 so total cost would be under 800 and u got these things for double. yar thori si negotiation pocket ke liyay achi hoti ahi dost

    I will get its seat covers inshallah, baqi chroming wagaira ... your mehran is really looking great no doubt but i cant add these things coz these wont give me any return and i dont have any plans to keep it for long. my friend will go abraod and then i will sell it. or he will sell it himself.

    i will try to make it loaded as much as i will need. but ofcourse it wont look like yours dats i am sure about
    your sound system is really good brother and the jeans you are wearing snake style is disco style DJ

    keep visiting and do give good suggestions thanks again

    @Vaqas1

    are you talking about the expenses till now.

    i have done 4700 for denting with denter
    and 9000 for paint and everything these guys will bring themselves, i thought first to get stuff myself but then i left the idea coz these guys are trusted.

    rest of things which i am getting i will quote the price list soon.

    @nickatnite

    brother, its of my best friend and we have plans to restore it. usually we share our things for longer times and then forget who is having which thing even
    he is owner and would be going abroad sooner but it may take a year or less than it so he thought to restore it. and we are working on it. i am taking it as a project and learning mechanic ethics
