Ive quite a few of these lying around at home! 'will need to check how many of these are working though, unless you want to fit them only for the sake of originality!

Hello Sumantra - how are you?

BLB1144's left side wheel box arm holding adaptor is broken, I am putting it off till I dismantle the car for restoration (if I finally decide so). I have 3 sets of brand new wiper arms and blades lying with me at home. I guess I overlooked. Thanks for reminding. I will fit all new ones. This reminds me, I still need to fix the degassing tank overflow pipe in the LHD too.

Why is the LHD out in the rain? I do not have any place to park it so it gets wet everyday, so might as well use it. What is the point in taking so much effort and then hiding them all the time.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

this is confusing - then why do you keep the red/black and the 1100S off the rain?

OT:
but it is true that parking these beauties is a major pain - i got a covered single garage for the padmini, after i bought the palio. the garage rent for the covered parking is twice what we pay for the other 2 cars.

The coverage was unimpressive, to say the least.

In today's world, Ambys and Fiats are all about nostalgia and the good old days. And these fellows were trying to explain how modern cars are better. Grrrr...

P.S - BLB 1144 needs a coat of blue, please! Mr. Dhabhar, are you listening????
P.P.S. - Rally stripe looks killer! How about painting on the roof too?
