Congrats to FCB for keeping the FIAT Flag high. I must admire the passion of the founders. Good size gathering and nice to see the complete range of FIAT's

Keep it up

Cheers

I unfortunately could not make it to the meet this time around. I was out of town on an emergency and I missed being there. Glad to see the group so alive

EDIT: On the brighter side the car is looking good as I had prepped it up for the meet.

Hi, I am restoring a 1960 Fiat 1100 and would like to know where you sourced the front / rear glass weatherstrips.

Angad, please share your car pictures here, we all would love to see that. For the windshield rubbers, contact Jadsons in JC road if they have it. If not Mumbai / Pune and Gujarat is the only way forward.

331 looks fresh now. The PP's 25 years old Original paint was badly faded. The only other option was to repaint I guess. Thanks to the new gen detailing products and detailing expert Sanjay, the outcome of detailing looks awesome.

The car is due for FC and hope Arun gets the FC passed this time as the RTO inspector had issues with the Paint to approve the FC. Hope to see the car in the next FCB meet soon.

The carburetor's detailing was impressive.

Seems to have turned out nice! What's that black stuff applied on the windscreen rubbers though?

I don't quite understand what it is with some of these RTOs! What does paint have to do with FC at all? Shows the understanding of these 'inspectors' of vehicles to begin with! They should be more bothered about the MECHANICAL condition of the vehicle- its the engine/suspension, brakes, lights and tyres that determine the safety of the vehicle and its users, not the level of shine on the paint! So if you take a freshly painted and done up piece of junk to them, will they pass it regardless of the mechanical condition?

Lol. Nothing was applied to the rubbers, Shyam. It's just 25 years of accumulated gunk that's flowing out with proper cleaning.
The rubbers appear darker in the 'after' pics as they have become cleaner and hence naturally darker. No dressing done.

Last week I had taken a friend's PP to get the FC done. Since the car wasn't in the um.. best of health, I decided to pursue it through an 'agent'. All that was 'checked', was the engine and chassis number. The engine wasn't even turned over. FC passed.
That's how awesome RTOs are.

Ah ok! Have faced the same here when I had an agent present there during my FC renewal! Now it figures!
Notwithstanding of course that I always strive to keep my Herald in near-top-notch condition and not just externally!

Good, hope all the classic car owners maintain their cars this way.

Here are the sequence of events that happened from the past two years to bring back the gray PP back on road after an hibernation of 5 years all due to a faulty fuel pump.

The jammed brakes were released, some two years back.

Karthik Makam's S1's cross ply went into this PP last year.

Some new spares were procured.

Last month, Mechanic arrives to start the car after years of hibernation.

PP was started and parked aside for the mechanic to do up the suspension and brakes.

Engine oil changed

Final tuning

Parked alongside other PPs.

This is how the car looked during FC, a bit faded, but mechanically perfect. The inspector rejected the FC request with the reason -> Re-paint needed.
