Thanks.Suhaas i will not be able to fix a big grill cos of the front bumper design. Please see the snaps of the grill on the car.I had made another grill with chromed aluminium inserts and most probably. i will be going for that one. check out the snaps of those too!!

Go for the grille with the aluminium slats instead of the mesh grille installed in the car!

+1 To that. The alternate grille should be the primary one. Straight lines suit the Contessa a lot more.
Great work. Its coming along rather nicely!

Great work so far ... any updates?

PS: The tyres look a bit small ... can you do something about it?

hi guys,

Sorry for the delay. The pictures has not arrived yet. But we had almost completed the wiring and the plating jobs. The dash is in place -special thanks to Miyer and psycho.All the meters are connected.

Now,I need help for fixing my steering. Please find the picture of the universal steering hub supplied by the steering supplier and it's not suiting my steering rod (The millings are not matching and the height of the hub is more) and hence please send me your technical solutions or availability of any other Hub for the conti.

I'm sure that i will be able to put some pictures by next week.

Many thanks to all for the encouragement and support.

Just saw this site ... they seem to sell BMW alloys in India ... if so, why did you have to import them?

Or is there something between the lines??
