Will definitely keep an eye out for that cover, though I have no leads at the moment.

Regarding the paperwork like I said earlier Im waiting just for you to give me the requisite address. Without that I cant do anything.

I'll do some research on the best suited tyres & update here later today. What was the stock size anyway? Karl?? Even Imperial is fine.

You could use that damping spray (I think Wurth) which I think Mad monkey had done on his RS.
I used WURTH sheets and ABRO underbody spray ....

used the underbod spray in the door panels and the boot as well ....

I don't think so Riju. Steer's Landmaster is painted deep gloss Maroon.

I Left my job at Toyota for rebuilding my car, even then it took 9 months and btw steer all the mods and work that went into your car till date have also been done to my car and for your info my car took 3 months to get painted from the "ready for painting setup"

After the work at Koyas Just Bring the Car down to Cochin, will assemble the rest from here, would be much more easier.

Just my openion and what power steering did you guys finalise for the car ? my car has rack and pinion from OHC and Power steering pump from Ford Escort

This landmaster also looked like it was under restoration and sorry for going OT folks I was ignorant about the color on Steers landmaster. Sankar thanks for the correction regarding the color.

Peace and the discussion continues .

Be careful with this rack, they are notorious for premature failures.

My Power Steering Haven't Failed ever since it got installed , although it's making weird noised now and then and slight vibrations . But the car which got fitted with the same thing just before mine drinks Power steering fluid like petrol it's rack got dismantled 8 times before that guy threw it away and got another one. Identified the problem as the rack has lost it's polish from bracing(to increase rack lenght) to decrease the turning radius.I was lucky as my Rack wasn't cut instead the Tie rod Arm's Length have been reduced. ! Phew......

Sorry but am i hijacking this thread ?

my car runs on 165 sized 15inchers on stock rims, forgot the profile.It's MRF. I am thinking about changing the PCD to that of Swift so that i can get a good pair of Alloys and better Tyre options. don't know weather it will foul with the wheel arches. but i would recommend against getting the PCD changed to Gypsy if Steer is thinking bout getting some classic looking alloys cause the alloys available for gypsy rims are extremely oversiezed for Amby's and Landos.

You sure you want to do that. Because the Swift has a 4 bolt pattern instead of the Amby's 5 bolt patterns. Amby weighs more than the Swift, one stud less on each wheel might be a bad idea. Another important question - The original Amby wheels are they hub centric or lug centric?
