    Default 1966 Volkswagen Beetle Restoration -

    Assalam-o-Alaikum Everyone .
    **** SO THIS IS WHERE WE START/SHORT HISTORY**** : So I had this craze light up for a Volkswagen Beetle A few years ago . After some time i managed to get a hang of a 1966 (1965 end in paper's) beetle from islamabad . it was lying around open to rain and the harsh weather . A lady had bought it sometime before i got my hand's on her . according to her she bought it for Travel purposes to her university and failed to maintain the car (Normal Case Y'know) . so I payed this guy , topped the car up with fuel and was on the chase for a 200-km journey from islamabad to my then Home city Peshawar with a backup safety car though on the very same day . Not to forget that after topping the car with fuel up out of nowhere the car starting dripping petrol , it was a broken/old fuel line underneath the car which we then covered with a plastic shopping bag (was changed on reaching peshawar) so we could continue the journey , the steering play and brakes were dreadfull that day , but nonetheless we managed to reach the city of flower's with two hand's,leg's and everything in it's usual places . though on reaching peshawar the fuel finished and the engine stopped firing (you won't believe it) just 5 metres within my house (i couldnt have thanked enough) . So we had to go and bring some petrol afterwards anyways .

    Firewall seal channels cleaned . These seals are very important for your vw . Keeps the heat out of the engine bay , less chance of overheating . Very important to get both of these seals .

    Cleaned the channels where the new seals will be going into . The old seals were stuck and had turned literally into rock so removing them was hard .
