This is a very interesting post! I'd like to see more of how you do repairs in Pakistan, especially the way you fix dents and crash damage in sheet metal.

Yeah ehsankiani, this is super stuff. Do you work in a fabrication shop or one that fixes cars that were in an accident and damaged?

What are the laws there for modifying these cars?

I have a keen interest in metal work. I being a training radiologist, unfortunately dont get enough time to perfect my skills.. The pics I post are the ones I take of the local mechanics working.. Mainly bulding old Jeeps and 4x4s from scratch and other parts too.. I will pass on the nice comments to the ppl who deserve them..
Thanks

Are they gas welding most of this stuff or do they have a MIG or TIG?

And what is the shop labor rate there? Of course, convert as close as you can to US dollars per hour.

These are all gas welds. We dont have MIG or TIG welding at our shop.. Looking into buying it or importing it. Its not common here at low end workshops.
The labor rate varies and depends on the expertise of the mechanic obviously. Even then, it is rediculously low. Around $10-30 per day for a good mechanic. One has to keep in mind that a medical doctor starts a job at US$200 per month if he is luck after graduation. So the salerries are not comparable to the US in any field, least so in the auto industry
