My door frame being redone after the fitting of modern locks and power windows.
The power window mechanism is that of a Suzuki Swift and the glass will be a tailor made single piece, eliminating the quarter glass.

Your patience and attention to detail is awe inspiring. I have been following this thread from day one and cant wait to see the final product rolling out.
Please make it soon, I know you have immense patience but most of the followers here including me are at the end of theirs.

The outside door handle is brilliant but the puny lock sticks out like a sore thumb. How about doing away with it and using only keyless entry

How do you plan to rust proof the door panels from inside with so much welding being done. Please consider dipping it in primer or leaving pilot holes to spray in the primer for longevity.

cheers

I literally poured primer into the door frame to inhibit rust formation. Hope it works.

The front bumper looks like a macho moustache. And yes, the refinished fenders look so much better - did you just fill up the holes with errr....filler?

Checked your thread after long, your build is shaping up amazingly well.

I want to make one suggestion. Add a number plate grove and also fir a Bolero or if possible Pajero Number Plate Light attachment while the work is on. It will look nice.

Awesome project Joydeb but somehow the jerry can and manual jack look a bit out of place on this classic body.
I'm curious what you are going to register this vehicle with the RTO and Insurance company as? Wanna shed some light.....
