    Default Charade88 Project

    Dear all,

    i am going to start a project of my charade.
    Charade is 1988
    CNG
    blue interior
    power window
    GTTi speedo meter
    Alloy rims
    Power steering

    I am thinking for its complete denting and painting.
    can anyone tell me if some good reasonable denter and painter available?

    secondly how much does a charage engine overhaul costs?

    I shall be grateful for comments.

    yes denting work has been started and one side is complete with panel and door denting and fender also
    now they are working on otherside panel and fender too done.
    car is badly rusted. but i guess after finishing work they will turn it into good looking and decent car.

    from where are u getting ur car denting and painting
    actually i have a same shape charade diesel but it requires some small denting work with complete paint job, and when i get an estimate the denter said he will charge around 8000 for these small denting work for complete car from outside, and paint from outside will also cost almost 10000, so i cancelled my idea of getting it paint in near future

    @baryar,

    with reference to my previous reply. the denter asked me 11k for denting, which now he is considering less as compared to work i am asking to be done.
    and painter asked me 13k for the paint. so both denting and painting costing me 24k.
    i am planning to overhaul engine as well.

    @hash4u

    what do you comment if i am curious about its body strength and resistance to accident.
    before denting it was not safe but after this denting which is all about piece welding do you consider it to be better in safety?
    thanks for your suggestions.

    Secondly...................i m amazed at the cost estimate ur mechanic has given you for the engine parts................the labour nowadays btw 3k-4k..............but i dont think that the parts will cost u less then 12-13k..........................i had a G-11 engine overhauled last year........the total cost went upto 19k, and the worst thing that happened was that the engine block cracked after 10 months and had to swap a kabli engine (costing 22k+ labour 2k+ oils 2k+documentation 2k= total of 28 k)

    I strongly advise to get a good kabli engine instead of overhauling. Mechanics here do not overhaul to company specs ... a good engine from the local kabari market will atleast be unopened (a GOOD one) ...

    it totally depends on the quality of work and metal sheets been used. since u r not making a drag car neither swapping the engine if the denter is doing his work alright, it should be safe enough to be daily driven
