here's a few images of what Nasir & I managed to get done the day before the VCCCP show in ISB (rather than going to bhera to collect them). Nasir called in a truck to his house to transport the cabrio and oval ragtop as he didn't want to risk damaging the cylinder walls by cranking them dry after storing them for 4 years.
Got the cabrio off the truck...
...and the oval ragtop
VWCOP decklid (looks like a 67)
Ilyas taking out the plugs and then putting a shot of oil into each cyl followed by a mild hand crank to get the juices flowing.
add a fresh battery and leave it to khalid to get her fired up on her first try. the smoke was from the oil which was chucked into the top of the piston (read above)
Nasir was mentally drained that day, like a father awaiting the delivery of a child,.. just look at him (far left). meanwhile khalid kept the revs up to burn off the excess oil.
sme as the above pic but from a different angle,.. you can almost see a smile on nasirs face. (notice the stock rear wheels are on now).
