Saw the car today morning, and i must say, the paint quality and the exterior body works are Mind Blowing!!! The interior needs a lil more work, but once completed, will look awesome. This car is a real eyeball magnet! Pix dont do justice to it.(Atleast, from these silly phone cams!! Maybe steer's bazooka will do better!)

Btw,Steer, when is the Landmaster meet??

Yes they do and that was the original design. Wiper motor is from LUCAS England.

Phew what an experience. From seeing the car getting done at a pace that would rival an F1 pit to Steer going speechless when he saw the car. From beginning the T.R.I.P in a raging down pour to the jealous look on the on other landmaster owner's face(btw they have owned the car since new). From explaining to the better half to why I was taking 2 days off to drive a 50 year old car to Cochin belonging to a guy that I had never met before - to the 1 am dosa at Pai brothers. Maaaaan that was fun

Default A real beauty

Steeroid, Must say all the wait was worth it. Splendid, I must say. Must say that we must be thankful to our friends who took the time and efforts to ensure this turns out to be a stunner and here it is, a S.T.U.N.N.E.R for sure. Waiting for a complete pictorial review of this beauty after the complete fit and finish is done.
