Hey Ravi - your answers are just superb. I cannot stop laughing. Just reading your answers makes me feel that the complete LHD project was worth doing. Paisa Vasool.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Current status of the LHD:
After a lot of cutting, taping (we have used 7 medium sized plastic tape bundles and 3 big sized ones upto now, still not completed), soldering and a lot of patience later, the electrics are now in place. The wiring is concealed into the front fenders for which I had welded brackets during the bodywork process. After driving the car, I feel that the combination switch should be reversed (operated by the left hand), so I am going to open everything again. The solenoid switch position will be shifted to provide sufficient clearances. After so much work done, the headlights are still to be connected for which a separate custom wiring loom will be made with 84 stranded Finolex wires and double inputs from the battery. 3 Bosch relays will supply individual circuits. The bulbs will be either GE or Philips 140/110 watts. The 3rd relay will cater to the driving lights. So, lot of work is remaining. Then it goes for final polishing after which the side patties will be fitted. I have finally managed to obtain a set of delite bumpers in pristine condition. Will prepare them with hard chrome plating and then fit them in this car. Let's see.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Don't worry Jaggubhai. If Cyrus doesn't do it, I'll do the needful!
