Mirza Abdul Majeed, an electric welder from Rawalpindi has just surprised everyone with his unique creation. Majeed has made a car from scratch with help from his sons.
According to Majeed, he spent four hours creating this car in his little workshop in Pindi. He has worked in various technical fields for 35 years and has been involved in electric welding for more than 25 years.
In 2012, his workshop completely flopped and wasn’t doing anything good for the welder. This is when he decided to do something different altogether.
He made a completely hand-made car which is something quite of a feat. Here’s his story.
How did Majeed make his car
In 2014, he finally decided to start his dream project, to create a handmade car in Pakistan. But he soon realized that this was an extremely expensive venture.
He started making his car from the wheelbase instead of starting from the body
Although it was difficult and a near impossible task, Majeed kept working. He started making his car from the wheelbase instead of starting from the body.
According to Majeed, the chassis of the car is made completely with small tools and without any help from computerized designing. Since electric cars are not quite popular in Pakistan, Majeed decided to go with a normal 660cc engine.
Majeed finally took his car out to a road test and found that the results were pretty amazing
The car’s exhaust, fuel tank, driveshaft, drive pedals, steering system are all handmade. After fitting the seats on the wheels, Majeed finally took his car out to a road test and found that the results were pretty amazing.
The hardest part of making this car was creating its body because Majeed did not have any technologically advanced machinery or designing systems. He spent weeks creating a single piece of the body.
He made sure that everything on the car was on par with vehicles produced in high-end plants
Despite having very little funds, Majeed made sure that the quality of the car was never compromised. He made sure that everything on the car was on par with vehicles produced in high-end plants.
Majeed was supported by his two sons who helped him complete the project throughout the four years.
What Majeed has achieved today is something many people fail to do so in a country where it is really hard to do something like this without proper funding or professional help.
