You could say that again.

Especially, when one had to wait for seven-eight years to get one back in the day. As it is having a car, new or old, was such a big thing. In fact so was scooter/motorcycle ownership to an extent. Nobody considered it piddly then, no sir. The advent of the piddly Maruti did that.

Lovely! Simply mind blowing! And I recall how I almost scoffed at the same car when you had it!

Oh ye of little faith

Well I myself saw the amount of work required and decided I wouldn't do justice to it. Am so glad the car has reached the standard that it has.

Well folks Karl has deserves a equally big hand in the success of this project, he has put in all the efforts and given all the inputs without which it was not possible to reach this level of detailing. And I am sure Karl will agree that this was just a soft launch and we still have miles to go on this project. And so the thread will continue.

Next Chapter: how to beat up the garage guy till he finishes the punchlist on your car. So keep watching this space.

As for Shyam we accept your apologies provided you find us an intresting project from Hyderabad.

Super fantstic work Amol. The other day while passing the garage I sms-ed you that the car was looking great, well ive got news guys, the pictures dont do justice to it. Wait till youv'e seen in in the real. It will blow you away.

Amol you have set a standard so high, that will make all us Fiat owners want to reach it. Its tough but at least the standard is set. I now have two authorities at least to help me with my dukkat twin projects,You and Karl.

Amol has dome all the hard work sourcing the paint and getting it to the T (IMHO). I just have to follow steps. Kudos and thanks bud.

Saw your Rover and Ponton today. The rover will be done tomorrow along with my Heckflosse, so i need a ride in that beaut....!!

Amazing! Beautiful! fascinating attention to detail. This is a better than a edge of the seat mystery thriller. Really suberb finished product. Waiting with bated breath to see the final final pictures.
