hey there everyone. Sorry for the delay.. the front is just coming up, but a long way to go.. the projector and lamp is just placed there as in to get an idea. well lots of work,but it seems to be flowing.

Also we were a bit dissapointed for not making it to the Delhi expo.but that hasnt killed our spirit yet. so hang on everyone.

The front reminds me of a Mustang! Well, whatever I can make out from whatever is finished!

Brilliant! How much longer would this project take?

the project i guess would take three more months with the v8 and mechanicals in place. the bodywork should be completed by this month end itself. after that would be the painful folding hardtop, brakes, suspension work, by which i don't mean the body work was not painful though..

Ok! It doesn't look much like the 'Stang now! Where did the gills and blades on the sides of the bumper appear from?

I see it's shaping up pretty well! All the best! I'm following this thread closely!

Well buddy i forgot to mention, the side grills were not carved out in the master piece as thermocol is too fragile and those will be seen on the final body pieces only. the fins on the sides are mostly gonna be the led side indicators. they are just a Photoshop rendering by me to illustrate what we are up to.

It sure takes a lot of guts to take up a project of this scale and execute and make it see the light of the day.

Several projects are dumped half-way through due to various reasons, but these people are continuing with their project with the same amount of zeal and enthusiasm as they showed in the initial days of the planning of the project.

Way to go Sunil, Nigel and Konjaril, its shaping up very well.

Would not like to compare it to Mustang or would not love to hear someone do the same. Come up with a name for your baby, it would keep those stupid comparisions at bay.

p.s.: No hard feeling people, but that's a fact. Stop comparing these two cars and start respecting/encouraging these guys for their project
