    Default Help required regarding Restoration of VW beetle

    AOA
    I want to restore a 1969 model Volkswagen Beetle. I have some queries in my mind regarding denting, painting and availability of spare parts in Lahore. Actually the car had been parked in garage for a long time and now we have planned to restore it with few modifications.
    What i want to inquire is:

    1. Innovative, expert and cost effective mechanic, denter and painter in Lahore. (Location of specialist VW mechanics will be helpful such as LOS stop etc)
    2. Availability of parts and exact shop locations.

    I have heard from someone that second hand parts for VW are not readily/easily available in Bilal Gunj market. Only new ones are available at Montgomry road and Lytton road.
    I have read postings from VW fans and especially would request psyb0rg, funkycapricorn, Storm, AsadIshaque, spectra, devilzpassion, romano and other respected Pak Wheelers to help me out here.

    Anticipating a prompt response

    Thanks!!!!

    @AsadIshaque
    I'll definately be in touch with you people through this thread (Inshallah).
    Some Deductions from your posts are as follows.
    1. You are suggesting not to re-bolt the car (as it will be costly).
    2. You are suggesting to go for touchups instead of re-painting (this will save great fraction of money too).
    3. You are suggesting to go for "short block" overhaul.
    I'll be considering all your suggestions while working on the vehicle. Inshallah in a day or two, i'll throughly inspect the vehicle and will make an estimate according to your suggestions (about the work estimate).
    Thanks & Regards.

    @ ranaomar

    Thats about the summary of things....

    However do note that point number three is a suggestion considering the best case scenario!

    In case the main and bigend bearings are worn out you will have to go for a complete engine overhaul. The cost of a good quality complete overhaul is in the range of 25 thousand rupees.

    Do keep us posted please.

    Best of luck.

    @ rebel

    Thanks for your vote of trust. Do provide your input too.

    regards
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Oh well u need to get antirust treatment done and have to make sure you dont PIMP it because restoration and pimping is a different thing
    get the same paint job done but get something proper done
    get ur seats made again from scratch
    this car has a lot of potential you can do a lot to it depending how much money you put into it
    Audi is like a disease once it gets in your blood there is no going back
