Will work out a deal with Reckitt & Colman for a continuous supply of SILVO.
Similar with Stanley for Chamois leather.

Try to get hold of last year's Mercedes calender. Better even, PM Rehaan. He can tell you which post has this here.

Mercedes had a project done just like that a few years ago..............I've got a supplement of their magazine with some photos and details of the photo shoot,etc.It's under my pile of magazines somewhere.A chromed out car would be a great draw in the wet or anywhere for that matter.It would be a disaster in India,whatwith the terrible monsoons and all.

gawd,

that's ugly...

how do u live with something like that! and as gordon said - what happens when the sun reflects on it - isn't that a driving hazard???

i hope that's not coming on the road soon - please keep it in the garage where it belongs!!!!

I second cream. It looks damn ugly and its not even something that'll grow on you like the WagonR. I'd advise his neghbors to hand-paint the car in the night.

That was actually the then new all-aluminium XJ saloon without any paint. It was displayed just to show off the aluminium body. Here's a picture of it.
