Some of the accessories and interior parts were being painted and will be done today. Electricals, ICE and seats will be fitted by tomorrow.
I have taken pics, but I'm gonna hold off for a couple of days... it's looking kinda incomplete without the new alloys and tyres. So, watch this space
Awesome!!! I'll be there tomorrow afternoon to check it out. Btw, did Minku get the spare yet? I'll be going there tomorrow too, he's promised to keep some decent alloys ready - but then again, his promises are emptier than paris hilton's head!! Anybody wanna join, most welcome... (shuvd?)

@razor, don't let that moron installer tune your amp - the one that refuses to tune without Himesh bhai's songs!!

@ wimwian - well it depends when you guys are going there. if possible send me a text and i will let you guys know.

@ razor - since you are getting the ICE done at GLIX - who will be tuning the amp? do you have anyone else in mind?

He he he, I'm no expert. But thanks to Navin and Sam I have learnt a couple of things and managed to tune my amp to my taste. Looking to expand my knowledge base by practising on razor's amp now

I wanted to see the car before leaving for Bangalore.
Looks like there's no hope in hell.

Update on the shocks:
The Pedders front shocks have been delayed by another three weeks, stuck in customs. I have decided to run the car on the stock suspension till they arrive, and then upgrade the whole suspension - front and rear.

Bought new front discs today, since the old ones are kinda worn out, and polishing them would lead to some vibration during high speed braking according to my mechanic. So, new discs it is.
Also decided to fit the OE filter box with a new air filter until I get my CAI in place. Trying to fabricate a heat shield of sorts... updates on that later.

Now for the visual update...
All right folks. I'll let the pics do the talking. Keep in mind that there's a lot of work still left, including a final polishing.

Sidelights will be blackened, and headlights will be smoked slightly amongst other things.

Yummy! Just can't wait to see the Phoenix in action.
Razor, being the large hearted guy I am, I'll do the entire running in of the Phoenix. Now, no need to thank me at all. I'm like this only!

Dude the paintjob looks awesome. Is it the same finish in which it looks dark green when the sun shines on it and black otherwise. black with a tinge of green sparkles. Looks like black magic.
