Turned out nice. The Gypsy rims take away from the period look, but I am not soure if that is your priority.

Karl, these photos are from your "Hindusthan" Mark 1 Ambassador? So the Landmaster and the Mark 1 shared the same dash? It also looks similar to the dash in my grandpa's Hindusthan Morris. Did all 3 of them have a similar dash layout and components? I don't think its necessary to check if the meters are working. A good meter shop should be able to repair and recalibrate almost any meter.
Are these called Smith's meters?

Nope, these pics are from another Landmaster in Pune. The Amby had a different dash, see my garage pics. The Hindusthan 14 also had a completely different dash.

I got confused because of this post that mentioned getting a dash and stuff from an early Amby taxi.

Absolutely first class body/paint job! I missed it. Thanks to my never ending client meeting.

Santosh. Remove those mud flaps asap. It gives a taxi kinda look.
