I know we have a seperate thread for parts to be stocked for Fiat and Premier however I humbly request if gurus can suggest me the parts (cosmetic & mechanical) for this car for future then it will be easy and a great help to me.

The meters on the dashboard were all after-market fitments. The most common was either an Ampere meter (will work on a dynamo, they don't work correctly on cars fitted with alternators) and an oil pressure gauge. These were manufactured by Yenkay then which is now Siemens VDO.

Delights came with a rubber glass beading without the notches for the aluminium glass trim. They are nearly impossible to find in todays time. Even if you do find some they would be some 30-35 years old (they were discontinued with the President) and would be of no use practically. The alternative left is to fit Padmini glass beading but without the aluminium trim.

Actually the 65 Delights (and maybe 66) had the aluminium trim in the window rubbers as found on imported cars - so good news is you can substitute Padmini trims which are very similar.

Great reply buddy. Adding to yours

1. The Brake fluid reservior should be metal with a Cap with a metallic blue imprint.

2. The fresh air intake system for cabin has been removed.

3. The carburetor, is that original. As far as I know the acceleration pump was not present in those days.

4. The gear knob is original.

Yes very true, the finish was in steel tough. By the way I have a spare set of aluminium trims for the PP .

Are you sure about that? The plastic unit could very well be original.

Yes, Even I do remember seeing aluminium brake oil reservoirs. Accelerator pump was present in all the earlier Fiats. For Indian demands of fuel economy, the accelerator pump was removed during early Padminis. (The jet sizes were also altered. 97.5 main jet was introduced then)Thus the original Solex PBIC became Solex BIC where P for pump was removed.

I have some pictures taken of those resiorvior. I am unable to locate them on my laptop. I will look for them and post.

@ Bala: If you can post the picture of the script on the resiorvior cap. It will be good for us.

Not necessarily aluminium, but metal, not plastic. I suppose likely to be cast iron.

I have held one in my hand. 99% Aluminium by the weight. However I remember seeing it in aluminium finish itself without any kind of other holder or being painted black, unlike the photograph posted by Manish. I even remember suggesting the owner to polish it to glory before fitting it on the car

My white car (`88 Padmini) had the Reddish, faded to pink reservoir in plastic with Fiat embossed on the lid. BTW, did any period of cars come with a reservoir in plastic with Fiat embossed on the lid originally from the factory ? I think it must be a after market spare. I am posting two photographs of it, although they are not very clear.

Adheesh
