Also note the fuse box on the second picture, it is branded Premier, the one on first picture (imported delight) (removed for taking picture) is branded Fiat :O}

I think we can use the S1 assembly but S1's are too rare to find in scrapyard. You have to be a regular visitor in order to get one. Will surely upload some good angle snaps in a few days. BTW congrats on the acquisition of parts. So after your driveway now the interior of your house is going to be occupied by fiat spares.

Yes your are right Sagar bhai! like others my drive way is anyways filled up to the limit, at one point in time my Teddy (labrador) used to run and play today that fellow hardly gets place to walk straight. Amma complains sometime about the vehicles (around 7-8 bikes, 3 cars) she couldn't dry clothes and she has not opted for terrace.

Apart from this inside the house most of the shelves except kitchen most of them are filled with royal enfield, jawa parts. Mom says "you are turning home into scrap yard" and at the same time she obliges my behaviour at home. Love you amma

Hi,
IMHO the rear view mirror in a delight is similar to that in a super select, like this:

I thought the super-select too had the mirror with the light, as on the older 1100s?

Here are some of the pics of intake manifold heating pod for reference. All other items required are easy to procure but the T has to be either fabricated or searched in scrapyard.

I think this is the type of ash tray that Manish bhai is referring to. But looking at the pics it doesn't seems that Bala's delight boasted this type of ash tray. He must be referring to the steel ones fitted on the upper side of the rear door.

As for the paint a good wash and polish will do.

Your seats will be similar to that of my car (i.e. select and superselect) so the ashtray will be in centre of the front seat rear portion and below that you will have the aluminium trim and the magazine net.

A reference picture is attached

Thanks Manish Sir for the valuable feedback. I am not intending to paint the car at this moment however I will definately try to give Appu a through wash, greasing and coat of polish till I take up the resto job. For now the car needs a general service, oil change. I am planning to take it up this week as per my mechanic convenience.

Manish I see my car has a ash tray on the rear door, I guess the pic below (courtesy Sagar) should be the one if it is from the rear doors. However you are also correct as Ram's (Hillram) car has a ash tray in the center of the front seat.

I am also looking for the round side indicators for Appu any clue or help would be much appreciated.

Bala bhai the pic of ash tray posted by me is the one which fits on the rear of the front back rest of the car. The one required by you is different and will keep an eye on that here.

Was browising through internet and discovered few info about the Delight (Imported/left hand) really astonished with the colour which I was thinking back of my mind when resto starts and I just fell in love with the interiors and would wish to have something like this. Do we get this shade? Can this pattern be possible? In total wish to have my car like this.

Why is the difference in few specifiactions like seating when compared with the Delights or other models we have in India to that of other countries. I disliked the fact that even Indian manufactures do give much much good quality, finish to the vechiles they import. If quality is first for them then its equally required for us aswell so why this discrimination.

Just wanted to share this with all you lovers (Fiat).

I remember reading in some mag that the bench seat was preferred by Indians, that it felt more comfortable and seated 3 adults easily!

Those seats (the one shown in Chanu's post no.118) were and are very uncomfortable to sit on. These seats are better in this form only where one can stretch out. I had a chance to buy them for my car and after sitting on them for 5 min i started to feel the pain. Outright rejected them.
