Thanks Kale saab, we missed you but. I am sure you can't resist to join us here soon.

Sushil as far as I am concerned I always feel the vehicle we drive should speak or reflect our personality, moreover its good to be unique but on a decent note "zara hatke". I am sure there are lot of people who feel that originality is what makes the vehicle perfect. "Different people, different opinions".

Here is the same shade card of yours the RED circle or the BLACK circled one is what I am proposing for your babe, Sushil start dreaming colours, scooter build off buddy thats what I do before the start any of my projects.

Let's get started Sushil.

Sushil if I had to choose I will go for pantone 353 in place of 331 as it would be very lighter side and may be a bit hard to maintain. If your are looking for a complete different look then I would advice to go for Pantone
714.

Come On Bro let's get started. Your scooter needs to go to denter first for the complete estimation and then we can start up. Let me know when is it you want to flagg off.

Nice choice of colors.But with this rains and wet atmosphere around,would it be advisable to start any work.Once the denting begins,coat of putty,asthar and all the process must begin.For the same reason,I held on to my sidecar restoration.
Btw,i decided the colour for the Sidecar and it will look like the pic below.

Hi ram sir,

Its looking awesome, i often wonder how you are able to come up with colours which make such a huge impact and at the same time stands apart.

I am sure the finished producet will be awesome.

Well with the Rains and the moisture in the air I am a lill skeptical about the painters job as any humidity in the paint or if its not completely dried up can result in bubbles and cracks in the paint later on.

ideally the weather has to be dry for any painting work.(As quoted by my mechanic in bhopal 10 years ago)

but i am sure times have changed since then, if the painter is doing it in a closed booth , away from the outside environment it may be wise to get it done if not then again it is debatable.

Would request Bala to throw some light on this one.

thanks

Sushil Narayanan

Nice colour Ram!! Priya will look cool. Reg the paint in monsoon that shouldnt be a problem sir as we are now dealing with 2K paint and which is not dependend on the almighty sun. Gone are those days when we used to deal with Aspa or Dueco colours which needs sun light. Now any paint booth will do the job and do the best. Yes as Ramzaan is round the corner post that taking up resto job is advisable.
