The end draws near, great. The exterior line levelling-looks phenomenal, flooring looks great as well. Tell your chap to take a little more care for overspray like the pedals I see. Those "Allena" brand pedal rubbers too are hard to find now in good quality. And make sure you detail the engine bay and underside!

Also this is the style of horn you need for your car, visible in lower left corner. Made by Magnetti Marelli.

Thanks for the fourth rim Karl, Now the car finally has all four rims. He has still left the chassis unpainted for detailing in red oxide as suggested by Roni.

As for the pedals you know how many time you telll these guys they just do what they want, somehow I am unable to yank them out.

Dont worry Slowly and surely we will have everything including the horn.I will look out for it. The list of wants gets shorter.

Is there supposed to be a light in the engine compartment even for cars with my kind of headlights?

Cyrus this looks very similar to "Blue Pavone" or peacock blue in english I have put up the code for this on an earlier post. The colour we know as Peacock Blue in India, never came in Italy, It was a India specific colour. The closest match is called Crystal Blue.

Finally managed to find the elusive plate which sits on the dashboard, where all the switches sit.

Too Bright too dark! all this is relative. No one really remembers what the original tone for this colour is. However my dad's friend a authority on this model of the car confirmed that this is the right tone, but we are still in a base coat, the car was to be painted tonight.

Now for painting of the engine and engine bay on this car. After much discussion with a bunch of people who are quite an authority on this car.
my conclusion is as follows.

Air filter- light Gray Green (Sort of Bombay Scottish Uniform colour)
tappet Cover - Black
Engine Block- Silver Gray
Chassis in Engine compartment- Black (not red oxide, that was only on later fiats)
Anyways this attached diagram is pretty accurate.
