i think the grey with the black roof would look great. what do you feel about having two black stripes runnin through the bonette and the dicky too with the black hood. the wheels also painted black. i feel it would give a sporty look to the car. just my thought.
naah...too sporty yar..dont want to to be that attention grabbing..

The Side-window frames and the B-pillar had black paint, how did that turn white?

What did you do at onlookers from the Right seat of a car expected to have the driver in it.

Once upon a time, I was on a bus and a person blesed with a Heli-pad head passed beside it on a scooter, I could not resist myself giving a knock. Later explained it was a natural reaction as I thought a "Tabla" had just passed below.

Anyway, 7 Coconuts, how many trips did it take to drain them?

But all in all, I must say this log of your trip made a very very interesting as well as informative read indeed, especially for someone who wants to make a road trip nearly across the country one fine day ('wonder if I could have the courage to....!)

A real pity indeed! Not to mention the zen(?) wheels!

But I suspect the indicators (which look like they are from a truck!) atleast can be rectified to the originals?

Nice report Cyrus! Btw, the datsun is a 120V i think, with esteem wheels! and a maruti 800 Numberplate lamp!!! Hope u enjoyed Kerala roads!!!!

And the stickers on the black 1100 gives me the idea that its gonna get 'pimped'! . I dunno what's wrong with people here, but some teens have taken a sudden liking to dukkars, and make them all bling with phat alloys n stuff, sad!
