Hey Stanher, thanks.. but I liked the colour of your car. I think that was the color of my car originally. Planning to change it back to that color as part of the restoration. And thanks about the badge.I too got it from Ebay UK last year for 13.5 pounds.. Also got the "Minx" badge for my '51 Hillman Minx for a similar price. I thought I may not be able to find those things here, so paid quite a premium for the shipping and got them! Btw, since you too have a Companion, by any chance in case you find any of the parts listed in my previous post, please let me know. Add a steering wheel horn button and that red moulding below the steering wheel from (where the indicator lever comes and made of a bakelite-like material) to the list. Both of these are a little broken in my car.

Um, you're referring to the car in the pic. I posted? Nope, that isn't mine, sorry.... forgot to mention.

Mine too doesn't have the Companion badge, which made me go for the ones on ebay. It needs full restoration. It was originally Black and in Madras until 1972, since when it has been in Hyd. I intend to paint it apple green though, as black can prove rather tedious to maintain.

Thanks Calrock, will talk to Anil over the weekend. Btw, the beading I was talking about is the one that goes on the door frame (not on the door). Co-incidentally, it is exactly where a finger is pointing in the center picture. Did your car have it too, or going for a new one? What type? Another thing is that the indicator lever I guess should have been more thinner with a tiny light at the tip which blinks when we operate the lever. At least, this is how it is on my car.

Cheers,
Avinash

Hey Calrock, this is indeed a brilliant job of restoration. I really appreciate the level of attention that has been given to the details, be it bodywork or engine bay or anything else on the car. I like the neatness of the engine, including the water pump coupling etc. Btw, approximately how much did this entire project cost you? Is there any kind of break-up between spares and labour? Because I guess its difficult to make that demarcation in such projects. So, it would be very helpful if you can give me an idea of how much it cost you. This is to plan my standard companion restoration. Also, how long did it take? Because the concern is that I stay in Bangalore and may not be able to visit the garage on a daily basis. I can come down once a week at max. Please PM me if you find that more appropriate to do.

Cheers,
Avinash

Wow, congrats! She's turned out quite a beaut indeed!!

Do keep an eye out for the missing original parts that'll make her complete, namely the original indicator stalk with housing and the original glass-rolling inner handles (pics. attached for reference):

Wow!!! I am speechless really. That is indeed an awesome restoration project and very well executed. Hats off to you and the Mechanic.

I would love to drive these cars sometime if anyone is willing to lend . Should be fascinating.

Dear Cali,
Saw your std 10.
Excellent work done; but you have selected a wrong colour.
Car was looking better in its previous colour.
What do you say?

Well, I'd say wrong or right, it's all relative opinion.

This is the original type of pattern these cars came in. Only the green should've been a tad darker.
