Wow with the paint its truly coming to shape, the paint job is good and with lot of attention to detail. That mechanic knows the car in and out I guess or is it you giving him detailed directions ?

Hey cal, nice to see your car in it's new hues at last! :drool:
The green looks just right (apple green) but the white should've been a little more creamish. Or maybe its the photo.

Also, as karl said, the dash should be painted cream/ivory, with the facia panels/glovebox door etc. in silver.

Aside, it was good of your painter to paint the inside (esp. real wheel arches) only white, with the 2-tone paint only on the outside, makes sense as the trims appear only on the outside.

'looking forward to seeing more.

If I'm right, white & green Pennants had green and red upholstery- karl's Pennant still does under the current one. He can tell you the pattern I'm sure.

Well, the white & green Pennants, AFAIK, weren't this white and green, notwithstanding calrock's statement above about the exact shade of these colours. So, the upholstery needn't be true either, but anything that looks pleasing to the beholder!

@ calrock, great work happening on your car, especially the tin work. The wheel arches, well...but I really am in awe of the attention to detail that is evident here on the whole, especially the way the die-pressed stuff's replacement has being beaten out. Btw, what gauge of sheet is the beater working on?

Prabal, as I said, karl's Pennant (which has been in his family since new) has the upholstery in that colour- he'd confirmed it to me long ago. Although only a small part (I think upper half of the vertical part of the seats) were red, the rest, including the "lap" of the seats were all green. This he could make out from a couple of tears in the current upholstery.

My car does have the original upholstry intact underneath the present padded covers. The present covers too must have been fitted decades back. Unfortunately the original door panels are not present.

The seat back has the top few inches portion in red, and I assume the same for the bottom. The rest is a light green. The covers over the original are fixed, and I do not want to remove right now as I won't be able to fix them back. This I can see through a tear in the cover.

I shall post some reference images over the weekend when home.

Wow, I recognise the boxes from what I've bought over the years, that's all OG stuff. If you have a source that is still supplying brake and suspension components, please do let me know.
