Impressive restoration dude. Its really gonna look like a True Italian Beauty, which will remind many folks in Mumbai of the good old Fiat Days, Clean Blue sky and a smooth drive along the wonderful Queen's Necklace. Awesome work man. Looking forward to the completely restored beauty.

That's a very beautiful paint job !

Eagerly waiting for the completed job.

Just a passing thought (not a suggestion), chrome alloys would have looked really great with this paint.

Thanks for the appreciation guys.
Time for an update again.
Now the updates will come faster as everyday there is some addition to the car, the restoration being in the final stages.

This was the position on the seventh of this month














This was the position today. Some trims have been added and the upholstery work has begun. Note the B and C pillars and rear wheel fenders from the inside have already got the upholstery treatment. That what the seats are going to look like with a white double piping.

Great detail Gogi. The paint job has really come out well. Loved the minor tit-bit finishing touches too.
