Will the bumper sport the original black strip or will the yellow paint on it remain?

Simply beautiful. Will wait for the high quality pictures. Those can make a nifty wallpaper, no?

Nice touch of your favourite colour on the linea alloys

It's coming really well. Am not sure if you have any plans on the interiors like carbon fibre touches, new seats...et al because this is the perfect time do it.

Anachronix, Thank you!


Ravi, We need to plan for a photo shoot once the car is ready!
The Seats have been worth the wait.

I love the scheme on the wheels. Must be a riot when running to see the yellow twirls. Seen a black getz with something similar.

Wow that looks brilliant, and the quality is top notch.

Just a suggestion, please get tints and blacken the b pillar if possible.

^Yup some contrast is needed. Also the ORVM mount looks a bit weird painted, the black look was better

Anyway congrats on a great job Raveendra!

Hey Ravi,

have been following your tread and am impressed not only on the workmanship but on YOU. For the TIME & EFFORT u have put in on this BEAUTY.

She looks Stunning. Loved the work on the Mac's.

If i may suggest.

ps - Please blacken the B Pillers and the OVRM Mount and the assembly. it would help Highlight the Tangy Yellow more.

Nooooooo! .It is these subtle features that make the car stand out and its what makes people stare longer. Else, its just a Palio with stickers for a passer by in another vehicle.The car will still make people think " yaaar .... kuch tho alag hai"

Besides,Palios did come in some variants with body colored B-pillars. Same goes with the older Golfs and 205's .

Thanks a ton for uploading the pics Raveendra & pulsar56.

It would be great if you guys upload the pictures of the interior. IIRC, the interior color scheme has been changed right? I'm still drooling over you car. Especially the alloys

And, the car would look more awesome, if you paint the B-Pillars black, OVRM mount and assembly.

I'll be waiting for the next update.

Nicely done there, mate! Your car looks absolutely fantastic.

The colour scheme looks like something that Fiat could have done officially. Only if they'd take their finger out of their ear...

My 1.2 Palio is just back from the paint shop with a fresh coat of clear over her T Mist paint. I must that you're giving me some ideas there, with your brilliant yellow job and all.

Hi Pulsar56,
Can you please post a few pictures of the car in motion? Want to see how the wheels look like while rotating.

Also if you can let me know how you got the alloys painted. Any specific process followed? Any special type of paint used (heat resistant primer/paint etc)?
