    Thumbs up Restoring Khyber

    Hey guys!

    I have started to fix up my little brother's rust bucket Suzuki Khyber. He doesnt know that I am fixing it up for him, Inshallah if all goes according to plan, I will surprise him when the car is ready.
    So far we have stripped the interior of the car and found big holes in the floor board! The engine has been overhauled and cleaned finally! Have also sent the seats, dash and side panels to poshish wala. Next we are going to move on to the suspension and in the end a paint job. Hope all goes well Inshallah, will keep updating pics as work progresses. This would not be possible without the help and hard work of my friend Irfan at N-Gen motors.

    Default Restoring Khyber

    So sorry for the delay but we have been having some back and forth with the denter. The poshish wala sent us one seat done, looks like the way i wanted it to. Am very excited to see how the dashboard looks when it comes. The floorboard has been repaired quite well, now we have to paint. The engine and gear are ready to be installed as soon as the denter is done fixing some parts he messed up on the engine mount side. However, he did do a good job on the floor, patched it up quite nicely. There is still a lot to do and time is ticking, we still have to put in the engine and run it to see if everything is ok. Suspension still has not been touched. Then there are the small things like lights, side view mirror, buttons for the dash, AC repair, sound system, rubber parts....this is quite a project to manage, but its a fun and learning process. Will keep you guys posted. These are some pics of the repaired floorboard, seat for poshish guy(in G-10) and engine + gear ready. Enjoy!Restoring Khyber -77229 Restoring Khyber -77230 Restoring Khyber -77231 Restoring Khyber -77232

    Those buttons will cost you a forutune!
    Those two switches on the right side (headlight and the parking light ones) will cost you more than 4k if you plan to install them brand new

    Thumbs up Restoring Khyber

    Hey guys!

    Here are the latest pics of the totally repaired floorboards after being painted. Work slowed down a little because the denter messed up with the engine placement so we had to send it back. Also the poshish wala didnt fix the dash properly so we had to send that back aswell.
    We are getting very close to the deadline, today (25th) car was supposed to be ready, but we all know, in these cases 2 things are never predictable, that is, time and money! hehe. dont worry guys, inshallah you will see the finished job soon! Enjoy these for now. Thank you all for your support!
