Why should we suffer due to some joker who trolled you. Kindly keep us posted with your progress on the RXZ, I am sure there are a lot of eager enthusiasts like me who avidly will follow your thread sir.

Work done today:

- Crank calibrated (with old OE connecting rod)
- Clutch bell rubber bushing replaced
- Center case is cleaned thoroughly and assembled back with new bearing kit (no painting)

I hardly get spare time on evening these days, so spares hunting will happen during next weekend only. Till then mechanic will co-ordinate for getting the things painted and plated.
Is this going to be a stock paint scheme one or we will get to see some nice artistic work like your blue one sir.

Definitely a stock scheme this time (may be in future as well). Yet to decide between the 4s or the 5s scheme.

Good morning, Mr.Boss, thank you for the pics. Just wanted to check how reliable is indianspares.in?

I wanted to order some parts from them, but did not find any concrete review about how genuine are the RX spares.

Any review would help.

This is my first business with them. Some parts were out of stock, which they informed promptly after placing the order. Once I get the parts in hand, I will keep you posted.
