Actually itís removed to check for any rust's in the Joints.
Check out the picture. The highlighted parts will be painted Dull Back color. Rest all will be painted Accent Viva Red color.

I decided to go for embossed number plates. So started enquiring, few told 700Rs for two number plates. I got to know about a shop in marthahalli (Through some tread in Team BHP) who gives the same number plates for 450Rs. I called him up, went to marthahalli and ordered it. He prepared and gave the number plate the very next day. Now check out the snaps.

These are kinetic/ Honda Activa size and not four wheeler size number plates.

Am going to Mysore tomorrow, I will get the latest photos(First coat red paint job got over day before yesterday, Today the painter is starting Second coat Red color paint) and post it on monday.

That would be a problem to drive around in Blore pal, i ve had bad experiences with cops there for silly things. Had to change my numberplate just cos it had projecting nos. and recently i was cought for having the TBHP sticker on my new number plate in Bangalore.

Make sure that the gap between the windshield frame and front cowl is sealed with silicon.( not with tinkering paste)
this will prevent water seeping in.


Its better to have a small check wall made out a flat metal piece of 3-4 inch thick to prevent water coming inside driver cabin. Since your doina full fledged tinkering job, its not a big deal.
You can even consider buttoning your custom soft top to this check wall(outside) so that water will easily drip off to the luggage bay.

i hope that you got what i meant.

Yes MexXxentric i got what you meant. Tinker he himself told he will use sealent(silicon). He has not yet started working on it yet. I will give him a call and check again. Anyways thanks for you advice.

"buttoning your custom soft top to this check wall(outside)" Good idea.
