Congrats on your resto prabhuav!

Your efforts finally paid off! Try for the original Padmini hubcaps too (IF you haven't got them yet)

Terrific, Vijay. She is looking like a million bucks.
Eight long years, but it's looking all worth the efforts! Enjoy the car now, and here's wishing you many miles of joyful motoring!

Awaiting more pictures soon!

She's looking a million bucks!!

Could you tell me the paint shade used, along with what primer you used, et cetera?

Will consider this shade when the '72 FIAT 1100 D goes for a repaint. Currently the car has a thirty year old (2K?) paintjob- seafoam green. Below that is the original beige/cream paint layer- from 1972.

Again, very well done job.
