Rally specs LOL! If I can acquire her, sure will get into rallying. Have a lot of mods in mind with that perspective!

Maybe that shade is your choice, waiting to see the final outcome.
Thanks Pavan, even I thought the same, a short while after the base coat (NC Paint) since the white bonnet & fenders were looking bright in their real red shade (German RED, to be precise). But I noticed the PU coat didn't do any such injustice to the final shade with respect to the base coat variations. It looked much the same even when painted on white (Pure White), as well the variations in base red. I guess the tint in the PU is good enough to cover the mismatch in the base coats.

Thanks again! However, looks like I'll need a lot of 'junk' trims to experiment on before getting it right.
Stanher, try it out, me too thinking the same since the trims in the SS80 am working is also in a typical mess (dents). Best of luck!

----------------------------------------------------------------------
So for the Update:

Ok, after a short gap of 3 days away from the SS80 (it was a rejoice on finally getting the paint on), & after I got back noticed a few large area with shallow dents on the car top. Don't know whether it was deliberate or accidental. But almost took care of it without damaging the newly painted surface, yet one is mischievous to repair!

Took nearly 3 days to clean the window panes (glass) & its rubbers as it had old scratched cooling film. It was in real mess.

(I like the glass panes the most in this car, They are matchless to even today's Maruti Suzuki's in the looks. They are flawless in terms of the surface finish, no ripples altogether anywhere!)

Installed Front windshield (actually a replacement one, not OEM that came with the car while purchase), rather slowly to be sure & scratch free (so far!).

Front windshield fixed, brake lines installed, rear Glass boot lid lock assembly fixed, black paint sprayed on the originally black parts (Matte & Gloss, both), such as, brake, clutch, throttle pedals, windshield wiper arms, rear door glass pane guide, battery stand & parking-brake lever. Additionally blackened the Front Grill & C pillar trims in matte.


Electrical System: Now this is in real mess! I need help from fellow bhpians on this & also on the 5th pic, the mud flap in between the wheel well & engine compartment is it only on the left side or on both sides (I have only the left side). I would need a electrical wiring/system diagram if anyone has it. I have prepared a partially done sketch. But have to understand the circuitry logic to rectify the issues.

The wiring had many issues, like the ignition key harness been melted due to overload/short circuitry, & it had done damage to the connectors & had spread across the main wiring harness. So I had taken out the complete bunching insulation to clean & repair, it was real sticky & greasy. I have cleaned it thoroughly, but need time & some consumables like glue-less insulation tape, similar spec wires (for repairs) & some connectors too. At this rate of work, it would need atleast 3-5 days of complete dedicated work to make it as good as new, I guess!
So folks, I would really appreciate any help on the circuit diagrams .


Today, I also finished assembling the in-door comps, glass pane, its mechanism & locking system for the rear doors after thorough cleaning.

Pending jobs for another 3 days: Cleaning & installing the door panes mechanisms, & door locking mechanisms. Installing brakes, steering column, fuel filter, the engine with transmission & radiator.

Attaching the diagram just for an idea.
Here is the link Picasa Web Albums - samsag12 - Untitled Album
Regarding the harness use a PVC insulation jacket/piping. Actually its not a tape but a cylindrical loop of PVC which can be cut in any size and the wires can be run through it. It looks very neat and original.

Firstly @bablue, what a car man! (you having in your profile, who is it?) The word 'immaculate' falls short for such a car . Was it stored in vacuumed space? To keep something which can transport people be kept like that, is unbelievable!

Now I am now jealous!

Will share all the expenditures of the project in every aspect, but that is only after the engine vroooms & me take a little ride in it! Till then just chill & enjoy the photos I share ;-)

Ok, if you expect me to dive to your feet for the whole manual, here I go!

But give me a good resolution copy, which is visibly good. Just make the wiring diagram the first ones to come, the rest at your convenience (and just don't forget to post the rest ).

Thanks once again & again & again!

How about helping the car brakes with some booster kit.

My tinker has added the booster kit for his SS80, and it brakes really well.

'saw this unusual white and orange parking light lens at a garage I frequent. The guy told me it is off an SS80 that is being restored there now. It is a Tokai Denso but when I pointed out that they came only in full orange on the SS80s, he insisted these too came on them originally. Anyone who could confirm?

The front parking light assy came in full amber colour colour for all SS80's and for that matter all gypsies and maruti vans.Even the SB308 had the same colour(but different dimensions) till 1994 when it was replaced by the white/amber combination.
Tokai denso like stanley was OE supplier to many japanese manufacturers,probably this could belong to another japanese marque hatchback.
also I think the length of this lens appears more to fit an ss80 park light,do check it out

Can confirm that SS80's and the early SB308 s came with full amber front turn/clearance lamps.

Think this could be broken part of a rear left combination lamp assy of a SS80.Maruti Suzuki SS80 DX-dsc02657.jpg
