Hi Guys,

My Bro has been working on his MG410 for almost 3 months now, things done are :
  • Radiator changed AGAIN to a MM550 one,
  • Leaf Springs Realigned
  • Made a custom bar to hold the shaky front seats.
  • Fetched a set of chrome rim rings (searched for that almost tow months)
  • Entire interior floor scrubbed and a thick layer of rust proof paint applied.
  • Changed the headlamp wiring set and all the rely changed
  • New set of bulbs for both the head lamps and the fog lights (Philips 100/130 rally for both)
  • Basic painting for underbody
  • Full rubbing and Turtle wax polishing to entire body
  • SELF FABRICATED FLAG POLE (Took a heck of a time/research for the right materials...)

Hi Sunil,
I don't think you get 235/75 size in BF Goodrich tyres - can you please re-check?!?

Btw, the vehicle looks very smart! Mine wasn't too different, a couple of weeks ago (my brother insisted I convert it to a half top)!

I'm running on 215/75 BFG's by the way.. And if you're tyres are 235, then I'm very jealous of your brother!!

Hi Ladak.Imran,

You might be right, he may have just the 215 ones, Did try to see the pics to find the size, but was unable to do so even with 12MP shots !!, will check & reconfirm. He has a Half top too, & I just LOVE it but he feels that the half top lets in rain water that will trickle in to the cabin & also the rear sets get awfully dirty with them, so he has the current setup I call Burkha for Palaya Pati

Cheers
Sunil
