It happened today! Me, Ashvin, JayZ, Aditya and JayD met at the paintshop where the Land-2 is being painted.

Paint job and finish is outstanding. And the two tone shade suits the body very well too.. It will be a treat for the eyes when with all fittings and 'ornaments'! Its gonna PULL crowds guys!!
cheers JayD cheers..

Here's a teaser pic. The car's in the booth, so couldn't take any better pix. These are not the exact colours, the look different because of the lighting.

need more pics JayD, desperate to see the car in real ,when/where can I see It ? and did somebody tell me about having a Landy meet with your car and what did I tell you ? The Paint shop doesn't look like a proper Booth, but at least they aren't gonna charge 1.25lakh for Body Preparation and still do a crappy job.

Oh ,that cars gonna turn more than some heads in town.

Was with JayD's Baby all morning, it's gonna be the talk of the Town for sure, and the paint job is amazing their professionalism is unparallel, but the other works are going at a slower pace like usul workshops , currently the rewiring and refitting is going on. The paint sealing and body coatings are top notch. Nothing more to say, maybe JayD will post a full story next week when the car gets rolling.

landmaster indicator assembly.a guydown here has 5 pairs of indicator lamp assembly for landmaster, they are NOS plastic not the original glass LUCAS made in england variety.he is quoting Rs.400 for a pair.
by the way he has got a single pair of NOS LUCAS INDICATOR LENSES for which he was asking an atrocious Rs.1000 per lens. but I have coaxed him down to Rs.1500/- from which he is not ready to budge.
anyone interested in these please PM me.
