there is no other words to describe a true Automobile lover than this. congrats polly there is no wonder why this landy is the best in india at this condition!!

Jai Ho

Polly,

Changa hai would be an understatement from me!! The best restored Landy I must've come across in India to this date!

I've been following this thread on and off, even though I couldnt really contribute to it. I really appreciate the hard work you've put in!

WOW! SUPERB! You must be so proud of yourself!

A few quick questions:

- Where did you source the Britpart snorkel head from? And cost?

- What gauge of aluminum checkered plate have you used?

- Where did you source the foil insulating material from? And cost?

A W E S O M E is the only word that comes to mind after going through your wonderful restoration of LR. A very well documented one on that. Wishing you safe & memorable drives. Raab rakha.

Now that's what I call "PICTURE PERFECT" a perfect restoration and perfect photo shoot. Happy to be a part/withness of a wonderful makeover or restoration of a British beauty and at the same time sad that the learnings are done. Nevertheless may god bless this angel and Polly Sir a happy driving days ahead. Keep it up Sir you are the inspiration for many as I said earlier and you will be ever for me.

Polly ji, just beautiful, I was watching this thread very closely and the outcome is just outstanding.
The photo with tank in background is beautiful, was it taken in an army base ? or do you have a tank too ?

cheers

Yes Girish, the tank is what he uses for the boring daily commute to office. Can get you through traffic jams with ease, even though it may be a little heavy on fuel. Believe he's fitting a CNG tank into it now. Next project.

Yup! you never know! there are guys who collect tanks as hobby and it seems SHERMAN tank is the king of all. There is one who collects steam and other LOCOMOTIVES where will he use it, now don't tell me its for day to day commuting.

Polly sir so what next...very soon we will be hungry for another intresting receipe (project).

Yup, you never know what hobbies people have. I know of a chap who happens to be a HAM Radio enthusiast. He has a collection of over 50 radios (vintage to modern day) and over 18 antennas on his apartment's (rented) terrace carefully positioned to receive various signals. Just imagine the time, he must have spent to set the antennas and what if he has to move to another apartment. There is no telling what we humans can get passionate about.

frankly Tejas i fabricated the snorkel myself from zinc sheet !!the alu chequered plate comes only in one gauge- 1/8 inch. The insulating material is industrial airconditioning material 20 mm thick and 12 mm thick from aircondiotners plant.
