The car is running beautifully, and the engine is sounding throaty. I have done almost 50 odd kms in the last 3 days, without any glitches. Kindly throw in any advices if deemed needful.
Warmest Regards,
When I met you and saw this car, you were clear that this going to be a daily drive car. I guess for a daily driver, you have to be practical in your restoration. The upholstery is looking great in its original pattern. For your restoration capabilities, I guess this was a very easy restoration.

Hi SVK aka Fiatian here

I must congratulate you for your passion and obvious talent that has churned out so many classics and beauties in such a short while without much fuss. The professional efforts are apparent and I am loving the end results especially the Fiat Select that has turned out to be outstanding.

Wishing you the very best for the future.
