Dear Pavan - Joy's 118NE looks absolutely stunning and superb. Please remove the sticker from the rear glass. Please preserve this car as it is forever.

Dear Arun / Karthik and all - let's meet in Belgaum. Yesterday I came upto Nipani for "work". . The road is very good, any Padmini worth its while will make short work of it.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

MEQ 3332 looking amazing, like the 118 NE rims on it, gives added beauty to it. I wish to ask Bangalore guys do you still get those chrome rings for the rims even today, I wish to have it for my Delight once restored. All the best for FCB.

@BD sir: Atleast some of us would be very interested in the Belgaum meet. The plan we made last year vanished into thin air. Just that it needs time to plan and prepare for some of the guys in our club. Our PP's are not tuned to your standards and dont give great mileage, so cost is a concern for a few and would need some time to accumulate cash. Many are students/youngsters who wouldnt have ready cash. Some of us also are going on a Leh expedition in Punto and Palio's this September. So best time to meet at Belgaum could be some time in October/November time frame.

If time permits, all of us would stop by some where around Pune and meet you and Illango on our way to Leh. Lets see how it goes.

I heard Fiat is selling them in CBU type costing about 23Lakhs. Hence the doubt.

I have seen one in Mumbai.

No man. I am serious. I have seen a new one.

Heard it had some Multi-Air engine.

Apparently being tested in Indian climatic conditions.

Finally managed to get the Tail lamp for my car. Got one from the Gujri (Mubarak meters) with two spare lenses and the other one from Mr Jaykumar of FCB who had got them cast. After a lot of filing and sandpapering, drilling, threading and buffing the finish products can be seen below.
Have also managed the Indicator lenses, need to get a photo of its base so that I can fabricate it. After this the only parts I require are the lock of the boot and three hubcaps. Headlights I do not plan to change unless I get the originals.
