Thanks a lot Mr. President(Roni sir) for the complement. you said it right i am the person who takes up a project for the ultimate completion. I believe in full success at a shot and not in bits and pieces. Also i keep myself ready for the harsh challenges regarding replacement parts.
BTW sir your President seems very immaculate. What Polish or cleaning agent along with the surface protection do you use.

Thanks a lot Ravi bhai for the wishes. Under the guidance of our Guruji one can learn all about fiats and PP's in minutest detail whether it is any mechanical or cosmetic part. Thanks a lot for offering me help. Presently, i need two Grills(which i think i will find here), round side indicator assembly and the most important part THE PRESIDENT BADGE.

To be frank, I do not have any particular brand of polish that I use. I am lucky to have friends and cousins abroad who know about my craze for car maintenance since childhood and they bring me car care products as gifts instead of the regular chocolates and candies. So, I end up using a variety of products like Turtle Wax, Mothers, formula 1 and other common brands whichever in stock. However, will still praise the time tested and 'Value for money' Desi Waxpol for solid shades, which you will find 24X7 in stock at my place, anyways.

Appreciate the time you took to reply my query regarding the polish. Sir i have used nearly all the products of the brand WAXPOL till date. Even bought a shoe polish they manufacture. So have the brand loyalty factor towards them. Having used it on my new car also, i had thrown the MGA polish which came with the car. I only use Waxpol on my cars and have stocked a pile of tins including Scooter polish. Your car seemed to be gleaming new so asked you this question.

Sagar don't you think applying WAXPOL to the car is a tedious job. I tried on one of my car once I could hardly complete the bonnet and I got fed up though the outcome was glossy. How do you people manage the polishing with a small peice of cloth and the wax. You all must be ARMSTRONGS!!. Sagar have you tried ROBERT'S liquid polish its from Pidilite Industries, Bombay I am using on my new Bullet STD and the shine is really good. I will try it on APPU. Give it a shot buddy.

Applying or rather buffing off Waxpol is surely a tedious process. It requires manual labor to such extent that one either gets fed up and stop using it or starts using Waxpol liquid polish. But the shine pays off all the hard labour. I polish the car by applying the said item with a piece of towel and buff with another one. This way its somewhat easy to remove the polish. One good point to note is that for making the applied polish disappear quickly after the polish is dry, apply a thin coat of polish over it and immediately buff out the previous one.
Thanks for mentioning the polish from Pidilite will try to use it if i get one.

Ya I did try this on my UNO and it worked. I was wondering if we can use the machine which the painters use. I'm not sure if its advisable or not. What I observed in the Waxpol is that even if it showers the rain drops doesn't stay which I haven't seen in others.

We have a lot of polishes for the exterior but have any one thought about how do we polish the plastics. I have use couple of them it gives amzingly wonderful brand new feel but its just for 10-15 days and then its back to the same.

'saw this poor, neglected President in a lane while I was passing through a locality in Secunderabad on my way home from office yesterday. Not my regular route, the cab driver had taken a diversion through this area.

I was fairly familiar with the locality and since I was on leave for today, was able to go again for a pic.

I dont know about the owner or any other details about the car. And it didnt have anything original overall, except for the front grille, atleast on the outside (couldnt see properly the interior with the film and dust on the glass!)

But bodily quite neat, may be an ideal project for a Fiat/President lover.

'hope it doesnt go into the ground!

Very interesting to look at but as you said the content of OH REE G NALITY on board looks minimal. Anyways, thank you Shyam for posting another Natina Blue PRESIDENT to get us excited!

The instruments in the delight cluster appears to be the meters from an Ambassador. Are they autometer make? delights had only Yenkay meters. Is it not?

This is like preaching to the Pope, therefore sorry in advance Rony, but is this in Natina Blue, or the Bayer Blue (or whatever the shade was called) that was introduced in the Padmini line-up in the late 80s/early 90s?

In this picture it does look more Natina than Bayers Blue to me. The Bayers Blue was more common on PADMINIS.
I don't remember PRESIDENTS coming in Bayers Blue though.
