Guys, sorry for the delay. But was a bit held up running around with the car . Car was ready on the 17th evening and managed to take it out for a spin at midnight. The perfect gift from 0111 I must say & what timing. All this could not have been possible without her help and support.

Here, let me upload some pics. Some more minor issues to be sorted out. But car is drivable around town and its been a lot of fun revving her to redline.

Got some suspension work pending. Got to get new sets of rims and tires. And a complete paint job soon.

Once again would like to thank everyone for the kind wishes & support.

A special thanks to mclaren0111 for re-uniting us. Baby, I am really proud of you and I am lucky to have met you. Love you loads and always will!

At a friends place. Not sure of the costs involved because I haven't gotten the bill yet. Still got some minor works pending on the car. No, I haven't replaced any gears. Its running custom gear ratios.

She doesn't have net at home. And she is been too busy with exams. She actually got to drive the car for the first time a couple of weeks back. It took her almost 3 yrs to convince me to let her drive the car .

Haven't yet got the studs from RNS. Once that is done, the car needs to visit Race Dynamics.

Thanks to all for the kind wishes and support.
