    Default Restoration of my VW Beetle (1970, A/T)

    finally, me n mad_racer started off with the resto work on the bug...

    (link 2 the purchase post https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply...mID!11~pw.html)

    had been waiting for quite some time, with all the wild ideas in my head, but then thought of getting the work started n implementing ideas as the time came...

    pics of the car b4 it went for the denting... (had purposely taken off the bumpers, cuz they were in a pretty bad condition)

    its better to share the bargained final labor work cost, coz in my mehru restoration project, i have put each and every part's price in detail along with labor rates too.
    the labor rate for denting i finalized is 4700 for mehru, in which all floor and whole denting work was included.

    infact i want to start my own beetle project after mehru project, negotiating with a seller for his VW beetle,if it gets finalized then have to take it denter first. so its very very important for me to know the denting cost for restoration.

    @aqib

    there are many good people and they charge accordingly.
    quality needs professionalism and hardwork and such people charge not for the work or parts, they charge for their name.
    find some workshop who works for leased accidented cars, they have good range of labor+parts available.
    parts means general things which are required to denting/painting the car.

    Hi Abby,

    Hows the progress on the bug???

    Did you get the fenders off or is the denter still giving you the run around???

    Any progress on the fuel guage and speedo issues???? I guess youd handle them once the denting is complete?? I have a deal for you!!! Pay me half the amount Rahim quoted for the work and Ill do it for you!!! Lolz!


    We need more pics here!!!

    Regards.
