@stuntfreak, very very impressive work. Frankly had to google "drifting" to figure out what it was.

Very inspiring. Your obsession with finer details is a great lesson. Have generally seen restoration of 4x4 Jeeps where quality control is stretched to a possible maximum. Looking forward to a few posts on the final product and the test run.

Thinking of restoring a Padmini Fiat in the next 2 to 3 years and powder coating is something I shall seriously consider

Many thanks and cheers

@ stuntfreak: Your project seems to be coming along nicely.

One question though; actually make that two. How easy is to import OE/aftermarket parts for your projects into India? And are you able to get the cost of getting the part to your doorstep beforehand or is there already a list of duties for parts & ancillaries?

Importing parts (in your own name), is actually quite easy. Use common websites like ebay to source out common parts, if you do not have a source abroad already. Thats the safest.

You have to pay customs duty and shipping cost. Its not that big a deal. Also depends on what you want to import!

Nearing completion. Almost done. Engine pre run, alignment and final tuning left.

Hello. It's not rusted actually. That's some black paint accidentally applied. Lol

I read up on this thread today!
Wow, what nice build & excellent WIP photos.

Now, it is definitely worth bumping this thread, if we assume that's going to get us some good photos of the Miata (sideways! )

If you don't mind, I would definitely like to come to your workshop just to appreciate the work going on & discuss a few projects I have on my mind, (but sadly never had the time or dedication to pursue them through)

Now, photos, please!

Ace.
