Thanks Badboyscad, i was probably planning to do the same thing, as you said. just a little alteration, planning to paint the wheels shining black and have chrome wheel end strip, like your car has... the silver colour in the wheels do not match the green shade, in my looks, and so will surely paint the wheels black.
thanks again for your photoshop works, i appreciate it very much.

No way should you go for the alloys, stick with the stock wheels. your car has the classic look and those alloys just dont gel with that look. It would be a mismatch that would mess up the rest of the effort youve put into the car.
And the colour is beautiful. After viraat put it into perspective with the vauxhall victor comparison, i realised what the car is heading for. Just perfect
Edit: i have this contessa in my area thats been modded very tastefully. it has metallic grey wheel rims and mercedez w123 bumpers with maruti 800 lights.
instead of the black , try this colour, its beautiful, though i am not sure if it will go with the green

shekaran: The colour looks awesome. Please don't add alloys to the classic beauty. It looks much much better with the stock wheels. if you want increase the rubber size. Waiting to see the final outcome. All the best with your project.

No doubt, it looks extremely gorgeous!
As a suggestion, i would say, put a good chrome carb-scoop on the hood! IMO would make the beauty look a killer!
(...not sure if anyone's tried it on the original indian muscle car till date...)

The Contessa is now finished with all parts fitted, seats fitted, and is now with the electrician, for new wiring, plus ICE, lights fittings.
As per all your suggestions, i am not going for alloys, just the OE wheel rim itself, but painted shining black and chrome lip trim on outer end.
The interior is all beige, tan colour, done with PU leather material. some suggestions, ideas needed on interiors, ICE etc.,.
would a long strip of chrome - from the front to the rear, on the side of the car - look good ? just below the bonnet/window sills ? friends, pls pour in your suggestions, ideas, to make my classic a beauty !!!

What NINE whole days!!! and i stumbled into this thread only now!
And have been in team bhp for all these days from morning to night.
And didn't see this thread.
Conti,she is responsible why i found T-bhp,she is responsible why i became a member of the forum,and i found this only now!My bad.
Sorry, but i couldn't help it.She is been my love since i was 15 years and dreamt of owning here.But only now it dawned on me that was just puppy love! :-(
So to the topic.
Nice work there @shekhar. Lovely work u done there. Though not my fav colour it goes well with the car's character and the era it represented. So what you planning for the ORVMs? Don't ever put those Rs.120 plastic mirrors,but know that you would come up with something fit for it.
P.S; interior pics pleazzz.
