Ram, we are discussing about the new ORVM's when we met for lunch today afternoon and voila, i bump into this thread now.

I must say they look really superb and suit the car very well.

Are they really functional? It would be nice if you can post a picture of these ORVMs sitting inside the cabin

Once again, congrats on this lovely Corolla

Ram, I am getting green with envy. How do you manage to source cars in such pristine shape.

'Sometimes' is being too modest. Wish I had your strike rate with such good cars.

Ram I am confused sometimes how you could you manage these many roles. Evey avtar of yours is unique, prestine. Just peeped into this thread and enjoyed the same as your Super Select, Delight 1100, Peugot 309 and I enjoyed the same as you had in the car. Kudos to your diverse taste and all the very best to you.

Thanks for your nice words Bala.Its just the passion that drives me towards this and the fraternity of people like you.
My Peugeot 309 was acquired with a timely help from a Team Bhpian,for example.

Thanks...Its a 1.3 litre petrol engine with rear wheel drive.
It produces a good torque and gives quite a few cars run for their money.

Very nicely done restoration of the Corolla. The color choice is really nice and suits the car very well.

Good luck and happy motoring. Corolla's last for ever!

These new wheel caps look nice the 0lder ones. I was imagining what
if the white strip on the sides were streched till the wheel arches and if the mirros on the bonnet were moved to doors how would it look, a small try in paint job, your comment Ram anna.
