Cool Finally....

Phew.. I dont know if this restoration takes the cake for the longest time taken... Must be in the top 3 for sure! Finally this week I got the vehicle back!! It looks... well I will leave that upto you to decide.


I highly recommend that you go back to page 1 and see the pictures there first, to really appreciate what the "makeover". What do you think? Comments/suggestions welcome

P.S: There wasnt much room to be creative with the camera due space constraints in the parking lot.

Neat work brother. Looks good . Any plans of adding side claddings (wheel arches) ?? Would definitely complete the look. Happy and safe driving

The car has come out really good. Looks like your hard work and (time) has paid off finally. Have a few suggestions though:

1> The tail lamps look a little faded, replace them if possible.
2> The tyres and wheels require a good brush wash and polish,also the white brand markings if redone would look killer.
3> As someone mentioned rename the mudflap to sierra
All in all a very good job there.

PS: Pics of the car outside the garage would have been better.

Thank you! Not for now. I want to now drive around a bit and then probably go for a few more changes I have in mind.

Great, after the long wait looks good. I guess a little bit of this and that is required to make it look the best. But congrats bud!

Hi - Thank you. The tail lamps are actually new!!! I agree with the tyres, and actually also the insides need some work. I am just going to do those at a later stage. I am happy to bring it to this level. There was quite a looooooooot of effort put into it.
