We have to try and make it before the weather gets too hot. Presently, it is manageable. However, its getting hotter by the day.

I vote for GopalaSwamy betta. It is a very scenic place. And until Mysore we have good support for our vehicles in case we run into any issues. From mysore it is 70 kms which is average support. Anyways, our Mysore members will pitch in if in case we need any support.


What do you guys vote for?

Took off from office, and was on a part finding spree. Guess what I got it.

1. Original sepia flasher unit.

2. Sweet trade park light lenses.

3. Lucas made in England head lamps.

4. Aluminium inside door opening handles.

5. Combination switch complete.

And many more small small items. Pictures will be documented soon in my restoration thread. All the while Arun was with me .

Well, i picked up 2 boxes (8 Plugs) from Jadsons. 4 have already failed on the MG that i am restoring, rest 4 saw the same fate.

I feel those plugs are past their prime now, i intended to just stock them for novelty purpose only.

Is it rare to find these? As far as I remember our 331 PP has the same. Correct Arun?

Is it? Then I will remove it asap. he he he..

Such lights came only till Presidents. I think 331 has "Foreign Glass" written on it which is common.

BTW I got a FIAT front grill monogram from scrapyard. But its slightly bigger than the Delight ones. It doesn't have the bend on the top like the logo of Super Select. Which car came with this type of logo?

When you have some time, check out the 331 head lamps and let me know Arun. The ones on my S1 are Autopal.

By the way, I have put a cut outer for the S1 and put on 100/130 bulbs.

Also, the FIAT monogram is for me right Arun?
