Very simple.

1) Purchase 1 metre of polyeurathene rubber sheet, available locally Rs. 110/-
2) Cut them to the template of required mud flap. Rs. Free of cost
3) Go to a stickering guy, give him the designs downloaded on a pen drive from the www. Rs 200/-
4) Install them on the car Rs. 100/- can be a DIY also

Total cost for 4 mudflaps ~ Rs 500/-

Had a small glitch few days ago.

After extensive drive of 100+ kms on one day. (Had driven the Bus to office)
The distributor cap had a crack that an eye could'nt catch and the solex carb 34 PIC-t dripped fuel a bit.

The distributor caught fire and a good samaritian autowallah helped douse flames, many thanks to him.

Casualties:

1) Burnt distributor
2) Burnt belt
3) Burnt fuel lines

The Bus had to be towed.

After 2 weeks, the bus is now running fine.

The Bus made its first public appearance last Sunday for Save The Tiger Rally.

14 on board for a 10 kms drive, and a total of 50 kms on that scorching hot day.

The Kombi drove very well indeed.Now i am a happy man

Now i am arriving at the last leg of my restoration, there are few loose ends that needs to meet.

1) Wipers have arrived, need to fit them
2) Original Sliding door handle gifted, need to fit them.
3) ICE ready, with the Becker radio, need to fit them.
4) First round of rubbing and polishing, called the polishing guy this weekend.
5) Change the tyres -- Need to find them.
6) IRVM not available -- Need to order
7) Side footstep rubbers -- Need to order
8) Update documentation -- RTA troubles, need to sort it out soon.

Way to go Pavan! Superb. In fact, I would have loved to bring along my Hillman for the rally, if only I knew about it! Remember me next time you hear of one such rally.

Your bus is wonderful man. Just too good.

Confusion! made me Skip work today.

Made the best use of situation, started working on the Bus in a long time.

My last weeks airport road drive with my bro was so damn fruitful. Touched speeds beyond 100 kmph, returned home late at around 3 am. The Bus has been running so fine, that i just dont want to touch any present settings on it.

But the detailing is long pending, so i sat and designed the work to do having ICE setup also in mind. Shajufx had been kind enough in giving me his brand new 4 speakers and 2 tweeters from his Ford Fiesta. The speakers look just aptly made for the Bus

2 speakers fitted under the rear seat, made use of the original wooden panel, which i had not fitted.

Some pics to do the talking.....

Got matching wipers and fitted them.

Also the original IRVM (except the mirror) landed on my hands few days ago.

A little bit of work on the interiors and one good rubbing and polishing should help finish the project.
