Nice work! Always a rejoicing sight to see a restored beauty which was neglected in the past. Great efforts!

Lets see how it goes from here.
Aah, channaagidhE!!
This seems to have come out all right!! I still feel though, that the bumpers would've looked all the better in red...but anyways, if you choose to experiment..!

But otherwise, just the right 'half-saree' paint job, they sure seem to have done a good job! So no worries!

Do ensure that the insides, even the 'wall' behind the front wheel etc. are painted RED too.

Annavre...! 3M has come up with a new Antirust coating product. I am trying that on my Bus in a couple of days time.

Same will be used on the Herald.

Will let you know the costing once done.

Great job Pavan, as usual ! Lovely color combo !

I remember seeing quite a few of these Herald's in B'lore when i was a little boy & they're quite cute !

Btw, one doubt, shouldn't the front wheel well too be painted red ? Im seeing a bit of over spray of the red on white there, not sure if you're planning to get that done now ? How about primer & black paint on the brake drum & other chassis components ?

You're right about that- the whole of the engine bay too should be painted red.

Thank you very much buddy.

I too am finding the heralds to be cute off-late.

Super stuff there you got Pavan sir. Its great to see the parts still available for the Herald. IMO don't put that roof carrier on the car. Will ruin the looks. That car shade will definitely give the car a nice period look though. Any plans to fit the same on the car??.

Congrats! Some great haul you got there!

Reg. the luggage carrier, looks quite curious. I suspect it couldnt possibly be an original roof carrier, looks too small for one....could it by any chance be a bootlid carrier, some of the UK Triumphs did have those:

Ratsport

They may not look exactly identical to yours but do look similar in dimension/shape. Maybe a look-alike fabricated locally?

Shyam, this could be the bootlid carrier.

I too was confused over its size, also tried it on the dickey. Was looking proportional, will post pics tomorrow.

Did you try filling it partially with oil and pumping the pedal?

If so, did it work?

In any case, from my experience, I would suggest getting them dismantled and cleaned from the inside, change the kits inside for sure. You should get new kits from TVS. Also get the respective connecting metal pipes cleaned.

Will try to do that by weekend shyam.

Well thank you for the elusive front bumper stone guards, eagerly looking forward to get them

Some more fittings followed today.
