Very well done Gogi. The car and the color looks amazing.

One observation though : Dont you think all those monograms on the grille spoils the show of the grille. I mean it looks too cluttered.

O wonderful work Gogi paaji!! Looks fantastic!

Also for the brass badges, they need a bit of thook-polish!! Tell me if you have the specific brass polishing liquid or should I send some across to you???

Default Phew what a beauty

Awesome it is.... Beautifully done and man am sure it does turn quite a few heads as you drive by. Great job Gogi, but would like to request you to post some interior pics too. I do remember seeing your neat speedo console and would love to see it in its place.

Brand new whitewalls are covered in some kind of protective chalk like substance, which over time gradually dissappears. It matches the car though

Thanks sir. I know re the checkered flaps, well the car was delivered to be late in the night so i didnt want to remove them till i got fiat ones. but these will go

On the contrary my dear friend.. yes it is cluttered but thats the whole idea

@ Irags- final polishing is still to be done. Will be finished in this week. Some small things need care..

Re the white walls, i would have washed the blue colour off had it not matche d the colour. Will turn white eventually

@ "CERTAIN PEOPLE"- Heres proof that my temp guage is working...
....while theirs is not.... NYAH NAY NA NA NA..... NYah Nya Na Na Na....

Whooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is to say I was left with my mouth hanging open when I saw the pics....!!
Gogi, man she is AWESOME!!! Jus wait til this car appears in a VCCCI rally! They'd better award her a prize!!
I've decided to do up my delight in the same colour (although not as yet, for the time getting a single coat in the same colour!).....
I love your car's interior even more!! 'might as well feel tempted to sleep (alone I mean! ) in it!! :P
PS: sorry for being picky but did you really need to have the reverse lights fitted?

Actually Shyam i wanted it removed too but was away in Calcutta when the finishing was done and the guy just put these lights coz they were there on her before. By the time i told him to stop, he had already drilled the holes...so.....!!!!
