Default Wow!

Undoubtedly, a lot of hardwork has gone into this car and the end product looks beautiful!

Loved the interiors too - the colours match perfectly.

You've, put on the Maruti-Suzuki Gypsy steel wheels, right?

They look good, but how about going in for some nice wire wheels in the future? Those would look real nice!

Its been a fun filled two days for some bhp-ians here ever since the Landy has arrived! Had a blaaast driving around town in the Landy! Its a real attention grabber!! The engine is just fantastic, and the car wheelspins away most of the time, leaving the onlookers gaping!!! Some pix!

I think a new thread should open up in the meet section!

Zak and i in the Landy. Note the working semaphores!!

Wonderful work! Now Santhosh, how about a nice photoshoot of the car with the man for whom it was painstakingly restored? I think we all would like to see the look on his face when he sees it! Right guys?

That is because it isnt a real dash - it is the facia of an Amby dash hastily cut and bolted on to the original LM dash frame on account of a long story called "Snake in the Monkey's Shadow" (how many of you have seen the movie?) featuring the following unseen stars:
1. The CM's Engine

2. The Original LM Dash from Udupi

3. Original LM Meters that actually work

4. Original LM Steering !

5. Original LM tail lamps in manufacturer's cartons

6. Rs.60,000 worth of Original LM spares

7. Toyota Corolla seats

8. Hidden A/c (really hidden - I havent seen it so far)

9. Power Steering that is both unseen and unfelt

10.Disc Brakes that were real show-stoppers

and several other such characters...

I will have to sit and put the whole story down in words sometime for my personal satisfaction - it is one of those things which are too funny to want to share so the story may never be out in the open.

Santosh, things need to be changed/removed:

Rear tail lamp cluster.

Mud flaps.

Rear Tail Lamp cluster will go as soon as we get the missing star #5 from Snake in the Monkey's Shadow as described in my previous post.

The mud flaps will go today. Amongst other things, the mounting clamps for the mudflaps on the front wheels are rubbing against the tyres at full steering lock - parking is therefore both painful and very very noisy.

I'm thinking chain-mesh mudflaps? Nothing else will look good with this car.

Add to that petrol cap position. Why is the trim on the rear windscreen rubber missing? It's very difficult to locate now. I myself have not got one for my car.

Also the door panels should've been fitted with press-clips rather than those ugly screws. But I suppose that it too late now. I hope the door panel itself is aluminium and not ply. That rots in no time. Keep it in mind for the future.

Petrol cap is inside the boot - I assume this was done for to save the fuel from being pilfered.

The door panel is aluminium and not ply. Clips can be arranged. Most of the trim is being located as we speak, as are some other stuff. We'll get the car to the desired condition despite everything.

There are a LOT of things to be done on this baby. For the moment, however, I'm quite happy to have a running vehicle as all the other stuff can be still be done - and they will be. The most important thing is that we got the car out.
