Well the hint of purple maybe the lights playing tricks.
The pics aren't that great. Had to take all of them with my mobile.

I payed 18k for the whole job. It's quite cheap, don't you think?
But It may be because the owner is my friend's Husband. Hehehehehe.

Now I need to do some maintenance to the engine.
My distributor is gone. So I have to buy one tomorrow. The salesperson is asking 4k for the distributor.
Do you think it's quite costly for only a distributor?????

I'll post more pics tomorrow.............

And some more........

Here the mechanics are changing the Tappet head gasket.




One last pic before I sleep......
Here she is nearly finished. We had to repaint the Bonnet at the last second because the finishing wasn't up to the mark.



You'll get to see her fully clothed tomorrow.

The Rims are just temporary......
I'll be getting alloys after my exams.
BBS 13" with 165/65 rubber Chromed wheel is on my mond right now.

If I can't wait maybe I'll get them during my exams.
Oh I was planning on going for the potenza's or Eagle F1's.

Will post as soon as I get the Alloys.
But anyway I'll go and paint the rims with a lighter colour tomorrow.

Oh! Some M**** F***** bumped into my car today while it was parked at the market.
Now there is a big dent on the rear left side of the car.

I would have been satisfied with just a sorry. Accidents happen right?
But the fact that they just ran away made me very very angry.
Wish I could catch the culprits in action. Man they're gonna wish they were never born.

OH! the Orange muffler is my making hehehe.
I made the free flow muffler by myself. (not actually by myself but the designing and the Idea and some of the welding was done by me.)

I'm still experimenting on what colour would match the colour of the car.
So you may see a green Muffler next week. (I like changing colours so that people can never guess right.)
