Thank you once more!
Thanks for that Karlos, I did not read this message properly. My Dad did mention some other brand that was offered as OE but I cannot recollect the name. May be if I dig into his old parts trunk, I might find something interesting. (Last time I did, I found a Wax polish tin that was almost 15 years old, and guess what... it had not gone dry!)

Ah! nostalgia. I can relate some of my experiences with that. If I am right, I think what I might have are the bigger ones. I will try to get the pics this weekend.

Hey dont worry about me - I'm just the guy who started the thread so that you all can have fun putting various pieces together ! There is very little I know about the car or its parts and this thread is a learning experience for me.

With all the good inputs from all the fellow bhpians, this thread is surely worth every minute.

The 'developments' have to be posted by Desert fox or one of the people at his garage. None of the others are carrying out the work in part or in whole.

Though Zak is currently parked at DF's garage and should be able to upload some pics.

I guess you just missed this one.

Looks nice. Of course, you probably prefer having one built up from ground yourself. I know, I would.

I had passed this on to Steer earlier. Firstly, its a diesel, secondly, ridiculously priced. Thirdly, no way of guaranteeing quality of workmanship.

Great to see the pics, has the colour been finalised?

Hunt around for a shikaar light. It looks great on a landy.

No, it's not only you but everybody. IT IS TILTED/CROOKED. Part of the design. Don't ask me why but ask Karlos.

Finally the pictures see light. I've been to this place almost everyday and it was a pleasure to see the work progressing well.

I'll be back again next week for more click click.
