Nice work. Waiting for some more pictures now. Great colour choice, though it looks a little light compared to the army green usually seen on the roads. The plastic mouldings should do the rest.

No its not secured with the clamps in the pic. Clamps were removed for painting them. Battery shouldn't spill once secured!

Getting it out for a spin tomorrow inshallah! Guys thanks for your valued inputs. Without your motivation it wouldn't have been this interesting doing her up. I plan to retain the hard top for the monsoons so need help in deciding hard top color. Should i leave it White? Or paint it matt black or dark tan? Soft top will be on for a few more months now. Back in winters!

Default Go with Black Hard Top

I suggest you to go with Black Hard top, even glossy finish would look good as the body colour is Military green a matt finish might spoil the look a bit.
