Today i went to see one of the Best Herald in town, i was amazed by its originality.

I am nowhere close to what i could see I have a long way to go. But since the budget is low, this is what i could best do, so pulled myself up and came back happy from the place.

That Was a TRIUMPH 1200. I had not seen any car as original as that.

Took lots of inspiration and returned.

Back at the workshop, the guys had completed working on the Brakes/ Clutch and the Carb.

Very surprised, that we spent only 7.3K for the entire brake and clutch (all materials inclusive)

Yes sir, its been parked there. A lovely car

Anyways, getting back to the topic, We started the car today without the exhaust, and the engine sounded really sweet

There are lots more to be done on it, by weekend, we probably might finish all the mechanicals and electrical portions. And hopefully by mid of next week, finish the upholstery, a good rubbing and polishing and the car will be ready for delivery.

Great to see full views of the car! She sure looks fab!
If only I could've been able to help you with the grille! The wire mesh looks like its been welded onto the grille surround though!!

Efforts will be needed to rectify it when the original grilles are found!

Also the bonnet/front bumper dont seem aligned right on the left side- a matter of concern. Do you intend to get that corrected?

Pavan ji congrats on firing the engine. The car looks fabulous and after the polishing and cleaning (glasses) along with a new set of tyres it will surely be a head turner. In the pics i can see the huge radiator of the car, i think its bigger than my S1's radiator.
IMO you should get that air filter painted to match the neat look of the engine bay.

I have seen his garage and his work, he does awesome job. But again is costly also. And he needs his own time.

Most of the work being done over the week.

Fresh new tyres go onto the car, suddenly there is a big transformation.

Today the electrician is gonna complete his work.

We are also attending to few rust spots on the floor.

Pavan, 'not intending to dampen your spirits but radials are a NO-NO for these kind of cars- they just kill the handling and also keep them too low-slung! I suggest you try for equally good crossplies, you can still get them (118NE size, so some of the FCB guys could help you out)

Also the front bumperguards still seem fitted upside-down?

I also see the bonnet catch on the left appears broken. If you havent got a spare, you can have the one that was fitted on my car (which I replaced with an original one. ) as a temporary alternative.

Congratulations on the good work. I just wanted to know one thing and that is was this car exposed to the rain ? Why are you having to re do a bit of the body work ?

I know about the bumper guards, will be done shortly

About the tyres, The car owner wishes for such kind of tyres, so i have nothing to say against it.

No Indro, not exposed to rain, Its like this, initially the car was done on low budget, the car owner did not wish to spend more money and eventually few small spots of rusts on the inside floor pan was negelected, but as the restoration progressed, the guy decided to do it up completely, and started releasing funds

No the floor panels are original, never replaced

It had those tiny rust holes, which the car owner wanted to spray antirust coating and live with them.

But after looking at the progress of the car, his interest levels suddenly shot up.

I was trying for Concurs, but i dont think, with a budget of 50K - 60K for the entire restoration, there is no chance i can go beyond this level.

So will change the thread title soon.

Sorry for not updating in a long time.

Work on the car is almost complete, We have burnt 12 ltrs of petrol for cooling the engine. Tomorrow the car will be run on the road on its own Horse Power. Yaaaay.....!

Guys...! How is the gearing pattern on the Herald, and what kind of rubber beadings for the body where the glass sits when raised.

By weekend, we will be spraying Anti-rust coating on the car, and rubbing polishing will be done, only later will the upholstery work be done.

Tomorrow will be the day for rubbing polishing and seats.
